COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Deep golden and malty, with a spicy hop flavor and a subtle, well-balanced hop bitterness, Rio Blanco is a uniquely Texan interpretation of an English-style pale ale. The addition of Czech hops gives the ale a refreshing crispness and flavor that will satisfy you under the hottest Texas sun.

Pours a nice golden color with white head. Some spice and a little piney citrus on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes pretty clean.

UncleKorm (731) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - APR 2, 2014
Bottle poured a clear deep gold hue w/ a large fizzy head diminishing to a small lasting cap w/ lacing. Moderate hay aroma. Initial flavor is a light sweet w/ a moderate bitter finish. Tastes are lemon, straw, and tangerine. Medium bodied, balanced mouthfeel, and lively carbonation.

Nice clear amber. This white head. Saaz hops? Reminds me of a maltier bud light. OK beer.

Aroma is hay, bready malts. Pours a amber color. Lightly sweet, mildly bitter. Not a big hop presence at all. An OK beer, didn’t blow me away.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear golden orange with a nice white head. Aroma of malt, grain, and grass. Taste is malt, grass, grain, caramel, and pine. Decent.

UPDATED: AUG 29, 2013 Bottle, 12oz. A clear, dark golden beer with a minimal sized off-white head. The aroma has piney, citrusy hops and a good dash of malts and some caramel. Too malty I think, but quite pleasant. Some sweetness in the flavor, just enough bitterness to deal with it, and some citrus and pine cones. Medium body, semi-dry and pleasantly carbonated. Some bitterness in the finish too. Overall, a bit malty for me, but it drinks easily and doesn’t taste bad in any way. 130828

Horrible brew! Twangy, taste. Weak head. Hoppy notes but bitter. Simplistic. Iron, tin wash down. Absolutely undrinkable! Embarrassing! The Real Ale should be ashamed to put out a brew no better than a Budweiser! Skip it!!!

Foxbush (1250) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - AUG 16, 2013
12 oz bottle This purchased at the Whiskey and Rye bar at the Omni in Ft Worth. The pale ale poured a hazy amber with a frothy and lacing off-white head. This is good pale ale for everyday enjoyment. The Czech saaz hops provide a special flavor of spiciness. The medium body ale had average carbonation. The finish was smooth with lingering bitterness and a touch of spice.

A pale, mild beer. The least impressive of the Real beers I’ve sampled. Golden, thick head, with a grassy aroma.
