Riverwalk is a light refreshing beer brewed with American Barley, American Hops, and fermented with Kolsh-style yeast. A welcoming transition beer for those new to the craft beer. It is great to drink while working in the yard or garage. Also while hanging out with friends and family. Riverwalk is for people that do not like Big Hoppy Beers.

12oz can poured into a shaker. Pours a clear, dark gold with a half finger of quickly dissapating white head. Aroma is slightly hoppy with citrus and some herbal notes. Taste follows aroma, slightly tart and slightly bitter. Dirty cereal grains in the finish. Light bodied with a thin texture. Lively carbonation and a long, but abrupt finish. Not bad. Simple, but still good.

12oz can which was only filled with about 10oz pours a clear orange gold with a ring of white head. Nose has some soggy bread, a little yeast, some artificial orange, mild perfume, a little cheap white wine. Flavor has some lemon lime soda, a little detergent, some white grape, soggy bread. Watery finish. Not my favorite.

Stuedmaster (344) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 13, 2014
22 oz. bomber poured into a tapered pint glass. Rich, clear gold with a slight white head that quickly dissipates, no lacing. Aroma of honey, malt, and bread. Has a well balanced flavor, very quaffable for being 6% abv. Medium to light body, slick texture, soft carbonation, well balanced finish. This is better than average for an American blonde ale, but still rather middle of the road.

JaKeAFC (832) - ITALY - AUG 21, 2014
66 cl bottle, 6%, 25 IBU, 3.90€.
Intense gold color, clear, big solid creamy white head. Lagery/malty nose.
Aroma is fruity (yellow fruits, essentially ananas, white grapes, dark grapes), malty, syrup, citrus, Marzen-like malts, bready, white bread.
Taste is sour, winegar, sligtly salty, almost no bitterness, neither sugary. Fizzy on the tongue, carbonated, medium bodied. Finish fairly dry. Reminds me of Oktoberfest bier, yes possibly something to do with Kolsh but i’m not expert on the style. Funky.

May 25th, 2012 - When move moves to San Diego - hopefully by choice - there is something of a long pilgrimage that they slowly become aware of. It doesn’t have any singular path or destination, though there many stops, or shrines. These are the breweries in and around San Diego, and they’re the places one must visit before leaving San Diego again. Occasionally, though, these shrines bring their relics and artifacts out to others to display, and to the convenience of the layman. I had held off visiting Manzanitas in the hopes of seeing all their beer and glory in the context of their faraway brewery. Thus, when faced with a decision between tap handles or bottles, I eschewed Manzanitas in favor of something less proximate. But that doesn’t stop bottles from being shared, and that is why the Manzanita Riverwalk Blonde became the first beer from that brewery I’ve tried, and well after my arrival. The pungency and bite of a dash of white vinegar leads the nose, with intensely acidic notes of pear, asiago cheese, and a nice bright funk, almost as if this blonde has been seasoned with a fruity vinaigrette. The taste would determine whether this was some horrible catastrophe of ingredients, or the brewery’s intention. And indeed, the flavor is utterly fascinating, and probably by design. The flavor is the same, though lacking the sweetness I would have expected from the pear in the nose. Instead, the flavor conjures images of a gourmet, bitter salad, paired with a dressing that is bright and punchy enough to complete with the likes of dandelion greens and mizuna. The dryness is complemented by a baffling profile of other deep, umami-rich flavors like parmesan, dry and unripe pear and maybe even a little arugula. This is a wonderful introduction to Manzanita Brewing, and has pushed it to the top of my pilgrimage list.
