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.

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

Hippy and crisp. Great beer after a long day dealing with serious heat. Real Ale brewing is legit.

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. Medium watery body with medium to light carbonation. Starts medium dry with light biscuit and caramel. Nice hop flavors, herbal and a bit spicy. Mild carbonic acidity with smooth nutty bitter finish and after.

Bottle while in Dallas. Deep amber color with a small, tight white head. The nose is lightly floral, some orange and floral notes, light honey. Tast is light grains, some noble hops, light summery fruits and general herbs. Decent. Smooth and prickly, light and easy to drink. OK.

MrBunn (2384) - 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.

copper with no head. Malt aroma, some grassyness. A little bit of a grassy hop taste, decent malt. Not very memorable, but not offensive either.

jmagnus87 (2220) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - APR 15, 2012
Draft @ Double Horn Brewing Company. Pours a clear dark gold with about a finger of white head. Aroma of caramel and spicy hops. Taste is light bitter and medium sweet. Caramel and spicy floral hops. Medium bodied with a somewhat sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, not bad. I’d drink it again.

A nice hazey gold with a small white head. It has a faint hop aroma with a bit of citrus and malt. The taste is slightly hop-forward with a malt middle and a faint bitter aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
