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.

Bottle which spent several months in the fridge. Amber with a medium white head. Aroma is a little skunky, with some hops and pale-lager-ish grain. Taste is very sweet, not bitter at all. Sweet finish. Light-medium body, moderate carbonation. Not good, but it may be because of it’s age.

APPEARANCE: A clear amber pour with no head and no lacing. AROMA: While the nose was subdued, I detected sweet malt and grain. TASTE: The taste is primarily grainy. MOUTHFEEL: Light-to-medium and crisp. OVERALL: This is a real good pale ale which I enjoy time and time again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from 12 oz bottle. A fairly unassuming pale ale that has some pronounced honey and light citrus flavors. Worth a second drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From bottle. Toasted malt and roasted grains, light sweet nose with medium herbal-spicy hop profile. Medium golden-copper clear with thin off-white lacing head.

MrBunn (2523) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 30, 2012
Bottle. Pours a lightly orangish gold with a very minimal head. Aromas of honey, oranges and skunky hops. Flavor is moe of the same... Not very interesting, but not bad... Honey sweetness with a little orange and Beck’s skunky hops.
