ready for Super bowl, even though I won't be watching live most likely due to watching the kids, but this is still relevant enough. This from Seattle, and next I'll have a beer from Denver.
Bottled on Oct 23, 2013.
The short neck chugs the pour along to a light fizzy almost 1 finger head that fades semi slowly, bits of lacing, very clear honey golden colored beer.
Nose brings mild malts, a little blond malt, mild fruity aroma, hints of grassy fruity hops, mild fresh unfermented wort aroma, not much else, very light nose.
Taste starts a bit on the sweet side, fairly malty, juicy like malt and a little toasty blond malt, again mild fresh unfermented wort, hint of a straw and perhaps a toasted wheat like flavor, or maybe unmalted barley. Then hops, some grassy hops, with mild to fair bitterness. A hint of a fruity flavor from yeast I think. Finish is dry and bit more bitterness, more grassy hops, little sticky malt, hint of a metallic aftertaste.
Mouth is med to lighter bod, decent but lighter carb.
Overall meh, it's def extremely drinkable and "crushable", but lacking a lot of character, flavor, aroma, etc, pretty boring and bland. I bet it will be easy for the Colorado beer to win this matchup. If you're thinking about enjoying this beer, I'd call an audible (Peyton style "Omaha"), and go with a more flavorful beer, that is unless you're looking for something a little bit better than Coors Light.

Red Hook Audible Ale has a rather thin, off-white head, a hazy, golden appearance, and some splotchy, thin lacing left behind. The aroma is faint, but one can detect fruit (apricots?), white bread, and some sugar. Taste is of those elements, with some minimal, pineapple-like bitterness. Mouthfeel is light, and Red Hook Audible Ale finishes semi-dry, easy going, and refreshing. This beer is dull and boring, sad to say. Nothing bad about it, though.
