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.

The bottle says "refreshing", and, well, it is. Not much of a red hook fan, I was pleasently surprised by this one.

This came straight from the 'fridge, opened cold. It pours crystal clear amber, with fairly large bubbles that leaves no head. Though it does not look bad, it doesn't have much character sitting here in my glass viewing it across the table either, as would a fountian soda.

The smell is somewhat sweet, and it does attract me.

The flavor is quite good - the hops are not overpowering as I would have expected, and it has a balanced sweetness that makes this a very very drinkable beer.

It has a somewhat thin body, which is fine in the summer.

I can't name the spice flavor it has on the way out, but it has a nice enjoyable finish, that dissapears nicely. There is very very litte bitter aftertaste with this - almost none at all.

It seems best to drink this beer fairly fast for as it warms it loses the mouthfeel and flavor and drinkability. That should be no problem though - I usually savor a beer but with this I noticed the glass was empty before I knew it.

If you are looking for "refreshing", then I'd recommend giving this a try. It doesn't have tons of character, but that is probably part of what makes it so easy to drink it - it just goes down.
