While a decent enough brew, Red Hook’s Audible Ale didn’t earn a place in my beer fridge.

I enjoy listening to Dan Patrick once in a while and have heard him talk about this collaboration beer. So when I saw it as part of a Red Hook mixed 12-pack priced for clearance at $10.99, I decided to give it and the other beers a shot.

I’m current on hunt to find really tasty beers with ABVs of 5% or less, so I went in with great hope for Audible and its 4.7%. But it let me down, in that regard. It doesn’t hold a candle to these <5% brews:
Deschutes’ River Ale (4.0%)
Green Flash’s Saison Diego (4.2%)
Sierra Nevada’s Nooner Session IPA (4.8%)
Stone’s Levitation Ale (4.4%, but it costs too darn much!)

So, Audible Ale won’t have a place in my beer fridge.

But I could see it as a way of introducing the craft category to fuzzy-yellow drinking sports fans. Compared to those mass lagers, Audible pours a nicer, richer golden color. And both the nose and taste show more malt than a standard lager. The ale yeast gives it a deeper flavor, and it has bit more hop bite (though only 22 IBUs). (1,110 characters)

Pours from the stubby bottle into a standard pint glass a clear light to medium golden with a thin quick to fade head that leaves no trace behind.Caramel malts and toasty grain the nose with not much hop presence except for a hint of herb.Flavors are alot of caramel/biscuit with mild herbal/leafy hops,this seems much more like an English pale than an American one in my opinion.It goes down pretty easy but there isn't much going on as far as complexity.En Fuego... (467 characters)

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Golden amber with a thin white head. No lacing on the glass.

Smell: Hops, pine, and citrus notes.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth medium to light bodied. Taste of bitter pine/hops with a subtle citrus taste in the background.

Overall: Decent brew. I would have it again. (318 characters)

Just about as ordinary as one can get. If it were labeled Bud Light, I would have no complaints, but it is not so labeled. I expect more from producers branding themselves as 'craft beers'. (189 characters)

Not much to it, goes down smooth. Dan Patrick is a jackass, not sure why they would let him put his name on the bottle - the beer is better than that. (151 characters)

Copper colored with excellent clarity. Lots of carbonation bubbles are churning from within. Heavy lacing. There's a quarter inch head of eggshell white. Aroma is of light malt and fresh bread. The flavor seems a bit muted with some light malt and bready notes. Just a trace of gentle bittering hops are detectable. The mouthfeel is light and smooth. (357 characters)

There is a little less taste than there is smell I wasn't expecting the best but I expected more but for 4.7% I'm setting the bar too high. It lacks in taste it's good for a summer session beer but if had a little of hop after taste it would be a lot better. It's too watery for me but since it's cheaper than most it ok but to be honest most of the rest of their stuff is above part. (384 characters)
