Red Hook Rope Swing is a very lively, semi-clear light golden beer with a thin, dense white head that fades to a film and leaves excellent lacing on the glass. It has a grainy aroma with a little lemon. It smells like a Pilsner. It’s quite light bodied and smooth with a very crisp finish. It has a good amount of Pilsner malt taste. There’s something melanoidal that reminds me of a doppelbock and seems a little out of place. I can taste a little lemon and there’s not really any bitterness. It seems like a watered down dopplebock. It wasn’t really a good choice for a lawn-mowing beer.

Pours a clear, pale golden color. Aroma of dough, citrus and grass. Very clean smelling. Flavor is spicy and citrus with a light grain taste. Not a Pilsener fan, but this is pretty good. Perhaps because it is a Bohemian Pilsener instead of the standard Pilsener. I will have to try more of this type. maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 17, 2010
On tap at the Rhythm Bets and Brews Festival at Colonial Downs on 06/19/2010. Brilliant golden body with a medium frothy white head. Sweet pilsener malt and light noble hop flavor. Sweet pilsener and grassy hop aroma. Medium body with moderately high carbonation.

Pours a one finger white head that fades quickly to a thin layer leaving some lace. Crystal clear amber color. Light-medium carbonation and light-medium bodied. Faint grassy nose. Flavor is more hops than malts, smooth, slight metallic finish. $2.00 for a 12oz bottle from Barb’s Beer Emporium Concord, NH. coyforce (684) - California, USA - AUG 20, 2010
Not too bad. Nice hay like aroma, but very weak. Taste is smooth, but there is a bit of an earthy aftertaste.

Musty grain aroma. Clear, pale yellow with a frosting of little bubbles on the side of the glass. An initially very tight, medium head which fades off to a raft of mixed bubbles that looks like frogs eggs on the pond. Dusty at first, but then there’s that odd diacetyl/salty undertone that I associate with Bohemians. Pretty clean, low hopping, but I wouldn’t call it crisp. A hesitant, briny/grassy finish. Decent lawnmower beer. ABC Liquors, Betton. TheHopster (1111) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - AUG 15, 2010
Bottle from The Franklin House Tavern in Schaefferstown, PA. Poured a urine yellow color, unfiltered, with no head developed. Weak malted flavor, no noticeable hops. One bottle is enough. Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - AUG 15, 2010
Thanks to Steve V. for this one, rated while we were brewing up a couple of batches for his daughter’s wedding. Light pils malts, on the nose, some floral hops. Flavor matches. Clean. Not a brilliant shot of flavor, but a nice little beer. travita (5003) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 15, 2010
On tap at BJs in Lewisville. The look is clear, golden straw colored, and small white head. The smell is corn, malts, grains, and slight florals. The taste is smooth, clean, some grains, and ok. Wasquatch (2) - USA - AUG 11, 2010 does not count
Purchased a case in Jackson Wyoming. Its a decent summer series, could be a little smoother on its end notes. Leans towards caramel flavors,with a touch of citrus. Not to hoppy, and a little average. Goes well in a chilled mug and mated with a hamburger.
