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 Redhook Pilsner is crisp, golden lager that is modeled after those historic beers originally made in Plzeň, Czechoslovakia.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

12 oz bottle from the variety pack – Dated Mar. 4, 2013
*notes taken 06/16/13 – Imperial Nonic glass

A: Light straw gold body, effervescent with fine clarity. Topped with a nice stubborn layer of frothy snow white. Loads of stick and lace bond to the glass all the way down.

S: Smells bready with that grainy Pilsner malt character. Like corn husk mixed with dry grass. There is a touch of spicy hops coming through but the aroma is made up mostly with Pilsner malt.

T: Taste follows suit with the grains, corn, bread, alfalfa, and a hint of spicy hops. Very character for a Pils. There is a moderately lower perceived bitterness to the beer and alcohol does not even register. Light, crisp, and somewhat refreshing albeit rather plain and uninspiring.

M: Light and watered down although smooth with a frothy feel. Drying crisp finish. Rather clean and pleasant overall.

D: A little plain and run of the mill type of Pils. Light and crisp this does offer some nice refreshing qualities but doesn’t really bring much appeal beyond that.

I've been having so many ales lately that I've been forgotten how good pilsners and lagers taste. And this pilsner I like.

What struck me off the bat was the bold taste and feel. Not overly impressive as far as its smell, but the brew sure pours a nice thick and white head and its taste is certainly morable. Good beer for the right pairings of chicken or steak.
