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.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2008
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of KAggie97. Pours a slightly hazy, deep golden with an extremely lively, tall, rough, off-white head. Lightly citrusy aroma with a whiff of yeast. Rather light in body with an excessive carbonation. Light notes of malt and citrus and yeast. The finish is dry. Oddly enough this mostly reminds me of a German Hefe! 120108

yngwie (13191) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 28, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2013 Bottle, 12oz. A clear, dark golden beer with a minimal sized off-white head. The aroma has piney, citrusy hops and a good dash of malts and some caramel. Too malty I think, but quite pleasant. Some sweetness in the flavor, just enough bitterness to deal with it, and some citrus and pine cones. Medium body, semi-dry and pleasantly carbonated. Some bitterness in the finish too. Overall, a bit malty for me, but it drinks easily and doesn’t taste bad in any way. 130828

(Bottle) Pours a hazy orange body with a small white head. Aroma of grass, floral, and caramel. Flavor of floral hops and herb with a bitter finish.
