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.

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!!!

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.

Pours a hazy copper color with a minimal beige head. Smells bready and malty sweet. Med body, not much flavor up front but finishes slightly bitter.

Has a nice hoppy flavor. A little more subtle than an IPA. Not too bad. I prefer my beers to be a little less hoppy, but it is a good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Light golden-orange body, thin white head, spotty lacing. Grassy, grainy, a little floral and citrus. Simple. Medium to light bodied, gentle carbonation, soft finish, minimal bitterness. Ok, but not particularly interesting.

Had it on tap at Hofbrau in San Antonio, poured a clear amber hue with a light head. Tasty caramel flavor with a hop finish.

Not a very good pale ale. Aroma is of light grassy saaz but no other notable scents. Taste is not balanced either with a bitterness and no flavors of note.
