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 Redhook Pilsner is crisp, golden lager that is modeled after those historic beers originally made in Plzeň, Czechoslovakia.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.

Appearance: 1" white head that disappears rapidly leaving faint lacing. Light golden color. Steady bubbling of carbonation throughout the drink.

Aroma: aroma of toasted grains and hop spice

Mouthfeel: watery, refreshing, finish is dry

Flavor: well balanced between hop bitterness and sweet malt. Depending on what I eat with this beer it can taste very sweet or bitter.

Overall: A very fine beer that is flavorful but not overwhelming.

Pours translucent honey gold with a 1/4 white head that quickly disappears completely and leaves no lace.

Smell is of biscuit, honey and butter.

Taste is grainy malt, orange, lemon and honey with faint hop bitterness on the finish.

Texture is medium bodied with medium carbonation.

I enjoyed this much more than I thought I would. Refreshing and easy drinking.
