Description: The latest addition to the brewery’s regular lineup, the Audible Ale is the result of a collaboration with sportscaster Dan Patrick to create the ultimate sports-friendly craft beer. Combining a lighter alcohol content with a mild hopping, this pale ale is brewed with drinkability in mind.
Tasting Notes: This beer was a bit on the light side for my taste, but given the focus on drinkability, this was not surprising. While the hop flavor is a bit subdued, it does have a pleasant malt character that is in keeping with a good session ale. It also finishes clean and is quite refreshing. This is the third and final beer from the Red Hook sample pack, and it was an all-around good drinking experience!
