Redhook Blonde combines the best attributes of a flavorful golden ale with the refreshing qualities of a lager. The ale is brewed with three different malts and two hop varietals. Lightly roasted barley and a touch of wheat, combined with an ample portion of hops, creates a truly crowd pleasing beer . Redhook Blonde pairs well with medium flavored foods such as fish, nachos or salad. Available year round.

Dogbrick (11889) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 3, 2002
Draught version. Golden colored with a medium head that lasted fairly long, also lively carbonation. Sweet yeasty/citrusy aroma that bordered on a German Wheat. Light and refreshing if a little on the sweet side. I did enjoy this one somewhat, but mostly because I got it on tap. Im not sure how well this would translate to a bottle.

djd07 (11361) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 5, 2009
Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow golden with a small white head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is a light malt with yeast and light hop. The taste is a corn malt with light fruit and a bitter finish. Not too much going on with this golden ale from Redhook.

daknole (10893) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 14, 2008
Bottle from a trade...finally decided to open it as my last beer for the weekend. Amberish pour with a small white head. Aroma is a fair balance of yeast, malt and some hops. Flavor has some grain, yeast, malt and slight hops. Not bad but fairly boring.

hopscotch (10708) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 22, 2002
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2003 This beer rocks. This beer so desperately wants to be BASS, but comes up just a bit short in almost every category. Still, an excellent blond ale. Try one... try six, I hear the business end of Redhook isn't doing so well right now.

alexsdad06 (9455) - Ohio, USA - JUL 19, 2007
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear golden color (who didnt see this coming?) with a small white head. The faint aroma was dough, light malt, and grain. The flavor was sweet malts and some hops. Clean, crisp finish. Light bodied. Not bad for a summer day. Not as bad as others may have rated.

Pours hazy yellow with white head, aroma of a touch of esters, grassy hops, straw. Taste is some light fruit, grass, sweet pils malt, slightly dry finish. Not bad, but nothing really good about it.
