Very clear and light with little aroma. Clean and light with just a hint of hearty character. Not much to this beer, I suppose, but it's well brewed to appeal to the common man.

Well, the reviews for this beer are all over the board from "cheap bud imitation" to "puts several German Helles' to shame." I aim to set the record straight. On one thing we can all agree: the label is TERRIBLE. I could've made a better label with a color laserprinter. Note to brewer - see Victory beer labels for inspiration. As for the beer, it's like Yuengling but without all that excessive carbonation. A very fine lager that deserves some credit due to its crispness and quality malt flavor. This is no Bud clone although River Horse certainly has a reputation for using liberal amount of, er,...water... in its beers.

A NICE COLOR BUT VERY LITTLE HEAD THAT QUICKLY FADES. VERY FRESH WITH AN AVERAGE TASTE

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2003 Rerate: OOps! Rated the wrong beer the 1st time. This one was good too, though. Nice golden color, interesting aroma and slightly sweet flavor. Very good stuff. Orig. rating (wrong beer): Pretty good. Reminds me of Red Hook Blonde Ale. Has a sweet aroma and flavor, but not too sweet. I also like the color, it's a bit darker than I expected.

Super snappy in so many ways. The malting is very nice (aroma is so strong of Munich pale), the hops are certainly strong enough to make this a very crisp beer. Had it with luch and it went down soooooo easy! Delicious. Dank U, u.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2004 Update: They have changed the recipe--now styled an Irish Lager. Guess how good it is. Update: Recent sample showed some real thinness which disappointed me tremendously and I must knock this one off of its 4.4 perch. Old: I'm amazed that this beer has been rated so low, particularly by those who've tasted it near its source. The worst I can say about it is that the label is among the lamest I've ever seen. Inside the bottle, however, is a wonderfully malty Helles bursting with flavor. The Munich style malt is in full force, with just enough hops to set the malt in relief. I think this one puts a number of authentic Munich Hells to shame, e.g. Spaten, Paulaner. A must-drink for a malt lover.

Dusty, sweet nose; light orange cloudy color; nice head. Juice-like taste, light hop finish. Medium body and a round mouth feel.

Hoppy grassy aroma. Golden with a little head. Also hoppy fullmouth flavor. Good balanced!
