Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Czech out Redhook’s newest brew. Redhook Pilsner is crisp, golden lager that is modeled after those historic beers originally made in Plzeň, Czechoslovakia. Redhook Pilsner’s maltiness is offset by a medium dose of Saaz hops and finishes with a clean, bright, thirst-quenching quality. A great “session” lager for when you’ve got a long day ahead of drinking.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

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.

3.6/5  rDev +3.2%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours translucent honey gold with a 1/4 white head that quickly disappears completely and leaves no lace.

Smell is of biscuit, honey and butter.

Taste is grainy malt, orange, lemon and honey with faint hop bitterness on the finish.

Texture is medium bodied with medium carbonation.

I enjoyed this much more than I thought I would. Refreshing and easy drinking.

4/5  rDev +14.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tall pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a somewhat hazy yellowish golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. About one finger of white head that fades into a thin patchy layer. Leaves some decent lacing.

Smell: A crisp and bready pils malt forward aroma. Upfront scent of bready Pils malt with hints of biscuit, cereal grains, straw, yeast, and crackers. Light presence of earthy European hops that linger in the background. A pretty solid typical Pils aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a crisp and bready Pils malt driven taste. Bready taste of Pils malt with upfront notes of biscuit, cereal grains, straw, hay, crackers, and yeast. Decent backing of earthy European hops add a little balance. Nicely crisp and dry. A pretty solid taste.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Crisp, clean, and very smooth with a drying finish.

Overall: A good take on the Pilsener style. Has the grainy malt presence you expect for the style.
