Redhook Late Harvest Autumn Ale

Autumn generally marks the transition from the grueling hot summer months into winter. In the northern hemisphere, the start of autumn is generally considered to be around September and in the southern hemisphere, its beginning is considered to be around March – from Wikipedia.

The sight of this new Redhook brew on our store shelves is a welcome sign. Summer time in Florida has a tendency to be hot and humid and this year has been no exception.

Yesterday, I picked up two bottles of the Autumn Ale and last night, I gave them a try! The Red Hook website describes this ale as being a full-bodied beer that pairs well with grilled burgers and any tailgate cuisine. I can’t disagree with that statement. The Northern Brewer and Saaz hops come together well with the malts to combine a very drinkable beer. Some folks over at Rate Beer don’t think very highly of this brew, but I say give it a chance. If it were more readily available, I would pick some up tonight for tailgating at the Buccaneers game in Tampa tomorrow.
