COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Redhook Pilsner is brewed in a traditional Czech style and is the first pilsner Redhook Ale Brewery has ever released. Red Hook Pilsner offers a very soft palate and malt flavors that are offset by a medium dose of distinct Czech hops to bring out its authentic flavors. The refreshing beer finishes with a clean, bright, thirst-quenching quality. Red Hook Pilsner pairs nicely with barbecued chicken, bratwurst, spicy food, fresh fish, and green salad.

Mixed 12-pack at local grocery. Yellow to pale yellow color with a white head. Mild floral/hoppy aroma. Light bitterness to match a light body. A touch of sweetness in the after taste. This is fine but Red Hook has better beers.

Hazy gold beer, little white head. Light crisp palate. Minerals. Clean malt but not that lagerish. Forensic trace of hops. Light floral note. Crisp finish. Fine but really needs another dimension.

SDalkoholic (2141) - Linda Vista, California, USA - SEP 24, 2013
Bottle from Bobar: Created a fluffy layer of foamed head while the liquid was a sparkling golden blonde. There’s a nice balance of grassy hops and malts that smell good considering this is a pilsner style. The drink was simple, with a subtle flavor of grainy barley malt and a slight notice of European hops. This is a refreshing beer on a hot day near the end of summer in mid September.

slightly citrusy smell, taste is what you would expect from a pilsner with some bitterness and slightly malty/sticky finish

jesperhammer (2838) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 9, 2013
09-AUG-2013, bottle @home, from Kvickly. Clear golden with sediments floating. Low white head that laces a bit. Aroma is toast and hops. Hops are not very citric but more earthy or tobaco’ish. Taste the same. Some malty sweetness. Medium body and carbonation. Short, slightly bitter and somewhat fruity finish. Fine lager.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. The actual name of this is Cross Czech Pils. The one I’m reviewing probably came from the Portsmouth, New Hampshire brewery. The pour is straw yellow with a quick foamy white head that quickly evaporates. The aroma is incredibly unique. I was expecting grains and grass like so many other pilseners but while I got some of that there was also a toasted bread and malt character and a vague earthy hop note. But there was something else that I cannot pin down. Light to medium body. The taste has the same characteristics as the body and I really like this buttery, toasty flavor that makes no sense to me but is entirely delightful. It may not be typical for the pilsener style but its uniqueness requires that I give it a higher grade. I could drink a bunch of these.

foyle (224) - Wyoming, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Appearance: 1" white head that disappears rapidly leaving faint lacing. Light golden color. Steady bubbling of carbonation throughout the drink. Aroma: aroma of toasted grains and hop spice Mouthfeel: watery, refreshing, finish is dry Flavor: well balanced between hop bitterness and sweet malt. Depending on what I eat with this beer it can taste very sweet or bitter. Overall: A very fine beer that is flavorful but not overwhelming.
