A clear golden color. Some sweetness with a hoppy finish. Mild yes, but still good. No blonde jokes here, this is a tasty brew from the Red hook lads.

Gee, I swear Ive rated this beer? Clear dark gold in color, the head is white and frothy, the lace is adequate. Nose is malt, clean, slight citrus tones. Malt front, light top, acidic and dry, nicely hopped, and as its edging its way to 113 degrees Fahrenheit, its clean and easy on the palate.

a light sweet beer, pleasant drinking on a hot day but nothing interesting. disappointing from RedHook - theyt probably brewed this to cater to the mass market

A good beer for a hot summer day or night; nothing spectacular, but insanely drinkable.

At first glance, I wonder why all the really low marks; a decent looking beer, light orange and vaguely cloudy with a full creamy slow-diminishing head. Then I smell it; grainy but in a stale, rice/corn sort of way, and not at all sweet. Flavor actually is sweet and somewhat malty, a bit better than the nose lets on, but certainly nothing special. Finishes with, well, basically no finish at all. Ends is more like it. Yeah, probably the weakest beer from this mediocre pseudo-micro; best consumed a 6-pack at a time after a really good beer or two.

I cant help but notice that this is the lowest-rated of Redhooks (sorry, Budhooks) mainstream, readily-available beers. Then I tasted it and understood. Its on par with the Peroni I had earlier in the night...and thats NOT a good thing. This should be renamed Adjunct Ale. The bottle says A compelling endorsement may convince us to feature you in an ad. Sorry, guys. Im not your man!..........Turning to the beer itself, it has hints of corn?, rice?, Im not really sure, but its a typical American Blond Ale. Nuff said.

Like an extra west coast pale ale, but soft, undefined hops.

What is the purpose of this beer? To give the big macro drinkers something to not be afraid of trying? If so, then this beer is exactly that, a marginal improvement over beers with far less pedigree.

Aurelius (5230) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 10, 2002
Nothing really to commend this beer, especially at its pricepoint. Aroma is citrus-hoppy, with a little of musty smell that I associate with wheat beer. Generic appearance, screw-off cap. Flavor is faintly ale-ish with a mild orange/rock candy tinge. Medium hopping. There is an unpleasant metallic undertaste and aftertaste.
