We mill the choicest two row barley malt in our 100 year old mill room for this all natural, non-pasteurized Irish Lager. Lightly hopped, fermented slowely. River Horse LAGeR gets plenty of quality time with us before we pass it on to you.

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.

Your average lager... nothing particularly unique

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!

UPDATED: APR 22, 2005 Fine lager. Well balanced. Another favorite session beer. I prefer their Bock and Special Ale, however.

Maybe I got a bad bottle down here in Baltimore, but this stuff was awful. Watery without any telling flavors. A good strong lager can be good, this lager isn’t. Where is the malt? Maybe I’ll try one of their others to see if the good reviews are justified.

Vaguely like Yuengling, not much else to say.

Typical american lager, a little on the bitter side. Riverhorse ales are much better.

obxdude10 (2043) - Limerick, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 27, 2001
UPDATED: MAY 12, 2003 Very average lager, nothing that I would compare to a Bud or Coors, it's certainly better than that swill, although the body was very thin & kinda watery

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 30, 2000
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2004 The beer pours a slightly murky gold color with a moderate frothy white head and the residual lace a thin but concealing sheet. Archetypal lager nose, all malt, sweet, crisp and clean with a sweet start that carries to the cadaverously thin top. Finish is stern in its acidity and the hops apropos to the style, drinkable, but a little light for me.
