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 Redhook Pilsner is crisp, golden lager that is modeled after those historic beers originally made in Plzeň, Czechoslovakia.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

    [Best served in a Pilsner glass]

    The pour was a clear medium yellow with an average (1-2 finger) white frothy head that reduced to a thin film and medium collar creating some fair spotty lacing.

    The aroma was pretty basic for the style with a straw malt, a grassy hop and a soapy yeast and had a mild note of caramel and a slight cardboard odor.

    The taste was very lightly malty with a grainy feel and a touch of caramel at first and finished with a mild bitter hoppiness. The flavor lasted only a short while being mostly of a bitter stale taste.

    Mouthfeel was light in body and had a mildly dry texture with a good lively carbonation.

    Overall a light hoppy brew that would be just fine on a hot summer’s day after some yard work...
