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 Redhook Pilsner is crisp, golden lager that is modeled after those historic beers originally made in Plzeň, Czechoslovakia.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.

Crisp with a malty underpinning. Lots of hops but well within the general style. Attractive white cap of foam on the golden brew. Loads of lacing. Mouthfilling carbonation which seems appropriate for a thirst-quencher sort of beer. Nice toasty aroma. Touch of sweet malt greets the lips along with the biscuity taste. Some of the earthy hop flavors along with the floral. I'm grumpy when brewers seem to be clumsy with the hops, but the bitterness seems to enhance the richness of flavors in this modest-alcohol beer.

Extremely clean and well made. At Liticker's in Ocean Beach the 22 oz bottle I tried was $2.59, and sixes were $5.99. Such a deal!
