Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Very pale in appearance with a basic lacing, clarity is fine. Faint aroma of malt and very clean with not much going on. Big on crispness with a tight but light pale malt body. Quick bitter kiss of hops keeps the brew in balance, hints of dough biscuits and husky grain in the finish. A decent extra pale ale, nothing to go crazy over.

Serving type: on-tap

Had this for the first time in a long time @ The Times, downtown Boston. It was okay. Quite the drinkable and clean product, but it also had quite a bit of diacetyl, which is not cool for the style.

3.85/5  rDev +16.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Presentation: Nice distinct label on a 12oz short twist-off bottle. Description of the style and "A compelling endorsement may convince us to feature you in an ad." adorns the label. How bloody cheesy.

Appearance: Light golden with a healthy head that appears to retain. Odd that it does so more than their Hefe?

Smell: Slightly lagerish in aroma with mild aged hops in the back.

Taste: Loads of malt flavour for a light ale, some citrus and a heavy dose of diacetyl (like butter, and there is a bit of cooked veggies as well). The small use of wheat is apparent and helps to lighten and dry it up at the end.

Notes: Quite complex for a light beer. Much different from our bright tank samples at the brewery which were less stripped and fuller -- none the less very enjoyable.

Serving type: bottle
