Very light, only 3.8% alcohol. Kind of disappointing. I think this is the lightest beer I have ever drank, after the time I accidentally ordered an OíDoulís when I was 21, foolishly assuming it was an Irish Ale.

On tap at the Portland brewpub. Pours transpent amber with a white head. Aroma of pale and light caramel malts, light floral notes, and dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. Pretty bland.

BrewMaster0912 (34) - Marysville, Ohio, USA - JUN 22, 2015
Pours a cloudy amber orange color with a light foamy head. The smell is a bit a wine smell but id have to say a floral hop scent. Taste is very smooth and very well blended with a soft carbonation and very little dry aftertaste. Very good beer, highly recommended, donít pass it up.

ajnepple (3285) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - JUN 16, 2015
On tap at GB Fish and Chips. Pleasant aroma of citrus hops and pale malts (toasted grain, cereal, bread). Similar flavor with a light body. Easy to drink.

Oldschool_Mike (171) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 5, 2015
Bottle into IPA glass. Pours a clear copper colour with a small white head. Aroma is citrusy hops. Taste is citrusy hops as well but lacks a bit of mouth feel. Pretty good session beer.

Brandon1989 (435) - Euless, Texas, USA - JUN 3, 2015
Pours a hazy golden color with a medium sized fluffy white head that left some good lacing around the glass. The aroma is citrus, hoppy, slight pine, and slight sweetness. The taste is citrusy and some hops but they are quite mild. The mouthfeel is light and the drinkability is high.

Decent amount of flavor and hop presence for a blond ale. Easy drinking and enjoyable.

triplehopped (52) - - MAY 25, 2015
Pours a clear, deep, gold; small/medium white head with very little lacing. Hoppy aroma with floral/grassy notes. Taste is light, a little bitter and just a pinch sweet. Light bodied with a slightly oily mouthfeel. Finishes fairly clean with a moderately lingering bitterness. Overall, a satisfying ale. Lacked any wow factor but a good everyday, any situation beer.

4% ABV. American Pale Ale. White soapy head. What I commonly refer to as a barmanís head. Nose is malty. Not getting much in the way of aroma hops coming of the head. Has a nice malty body and the palate is pleasantly stroked by bubbles and then gently scrubbed by a trace of hops. The one thing I notice most about my journey through a pint of River Ale is the volume...I catch myself thinking "Man, when is this beer going to end?" Good for thirst-quenching and re-hydration, not so much for enjoying the fruit of a dedicated, devious son-of-a-bitch of a brewmasterís labor. Iím sorry Deschutes, we already have an award winning local laager, itís called Tiger.

This was a delicious blond ale. Aroma was nice. Very yeasty with some light malt. Pour was a nice hazy medium light gold with a one finger white head. Taste was light and refreshing but with good flavor. The light malt was perfectly balance with a mild hop bite to balance it out. Nice carbonation. Great summer sipper.

Nice copper color, aroma is light with a hint of malt sweetness. On taste, you can pick up a hint of hops, but not much. Light to medium bodies beer.
