Wild River is a double-hopped pale ale, inspired by some of the finest craft brewers from the USA, bursting with citrus hop flavours. Brewed to 4.5% ABV, the beer uses some of the best known hop varieties from the West Coast of the US — Liberty, Willamette, Cascade and Chinook.

Pours golden with minimum head, smell is strong, fruity, hoppy and moderately fresh. But the nice sensation of the aroma is not reflected in the taste of this beer, because it somehow lacks the required balance, that I would expect from an APA. It can be described as a not so good copy of Adnams Ghost Ship.

Bozo_skeleton (723) - Grenoble, FRANCE - NOV 14, 2014
Dorée avec a peine de carbonatation, collet moyen et fuyant, petite dentelle. Arômes plutôt faibles, biscuit, caramel. Mince en bouche, mais une amertume sympa qui reste assez longuement en finale, notes de pain légèrement grille. Manque un peu d’interret.

Cuso (5968) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - NOV 12, 2014
Bottle from local distributor. Orange golden color with medium white head. Not very pleasant aroma of malt, oranges and yeast. Taste, sweet malt, oranges, orange zest, tangerines. Fruity finish with light hoppy bitterness. Forgettable beer.

villevav (340) - FINLAND - NOV 7, 2014
Golden, clear, small head, dry hops in the aroma. Quite similar to ESB, but the body is simply lighter

ElDesmadre (2273) - Mikołów, POLAND - OCT 31, 2014
Bottle. Lots of biscuits and some toffee, seasoned with zesty US hop notes. Lemon, lime, orange zest, all mixed together. Balanced taste, with neither the malts nor the hops dominating. Not too much hops used for flavour and bitterness, and given additionally the slightly earthy finish, this sessionable beer has an English soul. Very good.

djoeye (2266) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 27, 2014
Bottle. Clear yellow golden body with white top. Nice lacing here and there. Aroma; fresh caramel malts, lemon, sour fresh plums, grassy wet hops, notes of fruit tea. Taste; citrus hops, fresh juicy resin, sharp but fresh roasted malts, dark barley malts, grapefruit peel, hints of ash. Finishes with hops still alive, and sometimes roasted barley malts kicking in. Alright body for the style and abv, soft carbonation. Fresh citrusy-ashy APA with fine label and bottle, should be continued. Nice pal to dinners, snacks, sports, and even bisquits.

A servicable beer that I remember being more interesting than this on draught at the Old Joint Stock in Brum. Bitter, some citrus but it has more of the golden ale type character for me with a bit more hoppy punch. There is so much more interesting beer than this, but I would like to try it on draught again for comparison.
