BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Redhook Ale Brewery
New Hampshire, United States

Style: Czech Pilsener

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.30%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Czech out Redhook’s newest brew. Redhook Pilsner is crisp, golden lager that is modeled after those historic beers originally made in Plzeň, Czechoslovakia. Redhook Pilsner’s maltiness is offset by a medium dose of Saaz hops and finishes with a clean, bright, thirst-quenching quality. A great “session” lager for when you’ve got a long day ahead of drinking.

I guess I expected more than the averageness I got. The head stayed with the beer for awhile. The pale yellow color indicated beer. The simple taste was nothing special. And I didn't notice much of an aroma. It was as drinkable as any American macrobrew pilsner.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Look: Kind of a pale/golden yellow color with about a 1/2 inch white head that has ok retention and a bit of lacing

Smell: The nose is very mild and carries some citrus and spice notes

Taste: Again the flavor is mild as I expected it to be has so bready notes mixed in with a slight hop character honestly not much happening

Mouthfeel: Low to medium body with a decent amount of carbonation

Overall: The drinkability on this is pretty good it goes down very easy and seems like a beer you could drink about 20 of so for that reason alone I say the beer is worth a try

12oz : pint glass

Pours a clear golden, straw color with a fizzy white head.

In both the nose and palate, grainy malts, with light grassy hop notes.

Medium body, fizzy, bubbly carbonation.

Fairly standard throughout. Nothing that particularly stands out.
