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.

I liked the Audible Ale...much better than other Redhook's Ales I have had. The audible was lighter in body with good carbonation. Teh beer poured a copper color with nice head that was leaving a spotty lace. The scent carried floral hops with hints of citrus. The taste followed the scent, but had a nice malt balance that bordered a little sweet. Overall this is a great sessionable ale, perfect for the warmer months.

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...

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

On tap at e Rusty Moose on the wast plains of Spokane. Served in a pint glass.

Pours a pale gold color, clear, with a thin foamy head.

Smell is sweet and fruity. Soft lemon and orange blossom scents.

Taste is well balanced, with a light cereal flavor and a mildly sour fruit finish.

Mouthfeel is light and clean.

All in all a very drinkable pale ale. One of the better Redhoook offerings.

3.76/5  rDev +12.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

From the 12 fl. oz bottle. Stamped: 13 15 NH-MAR 01 13. So it is pretty darn fresh as I sample this in New Hampshire on March 29, 2013.

The pour is pale yellow to golden. The fizzy white head erupts a little bit but settles back quickly. Good clarity.

The aroma is all about toasted bread and earthy hops. The two sensations meld together to make this a rather inviting beer and typical for the style.

The body is light to medium but all in all rather smooth.

Like the aroma the taste has a decent toasted bread character but the earthy hops pick up a little more on the tail end as they linger onward momentarily. Easy to drink.

12oz bottled on 3/1/2013. Served in a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a light golden yellow color with a finger of a white head that dissipated fairly quickly. Liquid is clear in the glass with lots of visible carbonation streaming throughout.

Smell: Light biscuity malt, grassy, floral hops and perhaps a hint of citrus with an underlying graininess. The aroma isn't bad, but it's pretty weak.

Taste: Slight malt sweetness at the front of the tongue, toasted caramel malt, floral hops. The malt sweetness is balanced out with a slight twinge of bitterness in the finish, but doesn't linger.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied and crisp. Carbonation is relatively high but it manages to maintain somewhat of a soft mouthfeel. Finishes clean.

Overall: The flavors on this were enjoyable but very muted. The tag line on the bottle reads "A crushable ale brewed in collaboration with Dan Patrick (of ESPN fame)" so I take it this is meant to be an extremely sessionable beer that you can sit back and kill a 6 pack of while watching sports. And if that's what they were going for, then they succeeded.

3.43/5  rDev +3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Pours a brilliant deep golden with a one inch foamy cream head that quickly dissipates, leaving spotty lacing.

Aroma is fairly grainy and slightly metallic, with hints of floral hops.

Flavor reveals more floral hop character upfront, supported by grainy and slightly toasted malt. There's an underlying herbal quality and a bit of citrus. Mint emerges as it warms.

Body is on the light side, with substantial carbonation and a carbonic bite.

Fairly nondescript, easy drinking beer. They reached their goal.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Clear amber colored ale with a small white colored head.

Smell is toasted grain and cracker malt with a mild NW hop aroma. Hop scent of grapefruit and cedar chest and a slight eucalyptus scent.

Starts out mild with mild sweetness and a lagerish hop after taste. Wheat biscuit with a mild floral hop taste. Mild bitterness this is very easy to drink. Hop is mostly woody with some floral elements.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall and easy to drink ale, very tame.

(on tap at Moriarty's in Philly, 3/22)

Never heard of this one before. Thought I'd give it a shot - was looking for something light to start my night off with.

It comes out looking like a macro lager, perhaps aside from the texture and formation of its bright-white head, which has a bit of a rocky/ripped-up cotton ball look - not much retention, minimal lace. The liquid itself is very pale, grainy golden, filtered clean.

Not much of a scent factor. Cereal-grassy mostly, some faint floral hop in the back.

What I liked about the taste was its very exposed pale malt flavor - husks and all. Quite dried-grassy, but stupid mellow. A bit surprised to catch some hops a few sips in. Bit of a lemon-peel quality to it - flavor and bitterness. Together, the hops and malt are in nice balance, however, the overall flavor is extremely mellow, nearly tasteless.

The worst thing about the beer is the sharp, astringent shock that you can feel approaching as you put your lips to the glass. It just zaps the lips and pricks the back of the tongue with each sip. Reminded me of citric acid. The beer was designed to have a very delicate, almost non-existent body, which could've been enjoyed more for what it was had it not been for that pestering pop on the palate.

This is most certainly one of the lightest all-around American-style pale ales I've had. Served ice cold, it could give the big guys a run for their money. Stacked against the gamut of great pale ales available, this is quite lame.
