3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle courtesy of crajun from the Local Beer Swap Threeve. Thanks Kevin. Pours a faintly hazed amber ruby orange with a thin white head. Soft oxidized fruit, musky hops, old malt. Medium bodied, soft malt, a bit of oxidized malt, some old dusty hops. Soft malt, caramel, lots of filling carbonation. Long oxidized malt but nothing overly pruny. Just tastes old. Seems like itís old and may have been decent three or four months ago, but not a lot worth drinking now.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Spicy, earthy aroma with hops, pepper, and malts. Mildly bitter taste of hops, grass, and pepper, balanced out by nutty malts. Medium-to-light body with lively carbonation. The overall taste and mouthfeel exceed the aroma. Certainly not below my expectations.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rio Blanco Pale Ale has a thin, off-white head and a sort of murky, yellow-orange appearance, with many lacing rings, streaming bubbles, and some relatively large chunks floating about. The aroma is very muted, but with deep inhalations, one can detect some sweet malt. The taste is of sweet, sugary, medium-roasted malt, a bit of hop sting, and bread. Mouthfeel is medium, and Real Ale Rio Blanco Pale Ale finishes mellow, easy drinking, and delicious. RJT

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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 itís age.

Poured from 12 oz bottle. A fairly unassuming pale ale that has some pronounced honey and light citrus flavors. Worth a second drink.
