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 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.

AndresTM (394) - Texas, USA - SEP 20, 2012
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.

Pours a thin white head. No lacing. Deep copper color. Aroma is mostly sweet malt. You can notice a little bit of hoppy spiciness in the aroma. Taste is also malty with crisp hop finish. ---Rated via iPhone

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 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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
