I tried this beer on to with pizza. It wasn't bad but it wasn't great either. The aroma was barely there at with maybe light citrus notes. It had bread like aroma with a bread like taste. The front taste was ver clean and crisp but was followed by a stronger bitterness. It wasn't cold enough for me.

Serving type: on-tap

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).

12oz custom Redhook bottle
A) Pours with a thin, white head that has great retention. Clear golden-bronze body.
S) Fresh orange. Bright floral notes.
T) Nutty undertones. Mellow hop bite from the beginning.
M) Crisp. Fizzy. Medium-light body. Finishes a bit thin, dry and chalky.
O) An okay beer. Looks great on the pour but the taste profile and mouthfeel are weak.
