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.

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

RamyG4 (323) - , New Jersey, USA - AUG 12, 2012
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.

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.
