2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours light straw color with very little head. Aroma is a little perfumy. Hops, and light malts can be found in the taste. Starts out sweet and fruity and finishes slightly grassy. Decent palate for a summer beer. Not too watery but refreshing. This one was o.k. but not something that I will come back to soon.

poured with no head, color of straw. . .Aroma of clean laundry; flavour was on the grassy side.. . Not a bad beer, but not something I would turn to after mowing my lawn or something.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a light-gold. Smells fruity on a way. unexplainable scent. Tastes of berries slightly then finishes clean. Not much after taste and very light. Theres a lack of that crisp clean feel that a summer beer should have. Maybe it wasnít cold enough.

I love going to The River Horse Brewery for a sampling when Iím in Lambertville and enjoy their events too. That said sometimes I find the offerings a bit thin. Enjoyed the Summer Blonde more than I expected. A satisfying taste, straw golden color, fair+ mouthfeel on a hot day, good with eats and quite drinkable with the relatively low alcohol content.

Bottle: pours yellow with a thin white head. Streaming carbonation. Light hairspray hop aroma. Decent flavor, easy drinking, smooth. Moderately hopped with a mildly bitter finish. Uncomplicated and simple like they said. Decent.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours out a slightly hazy golden color. No head, just some lacing. Smells alright...is that corn? I hope not...lets drink it and find out
Not so bad. I can see where the blonde/golden comes from. Pretty refreshing. Iíd have to disagree with my good friend tsarman (the previous rater) on this beer. Iíll grab sixpacks of this over many other things for some summer grillin/yard work brew

On tap at River Horse. Did not taste like that much of a golden ale. Easy to drink, but lacks a strong sense of flavor. Close to a regular lager in many ways.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Partially cloudy pale golden yellow with a quickly fading head. Aroma is lightly grainy with a whiff of creamed corn. Flavor is very grainy with notes of lemon/citrus and a hint of caramel. Moderately sweet, no bitterness. Body is surprisingly full, round and creamy with lively carbonation. No lacing or head retention. Not bad but it lacks flavor and aroma.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A nice pale golden color with very little head. Sweet aroma of honeysuckle and camomile. The taste is very clean and crisp. Some more of the honey comes through in the taste and has a great hops balance. There seems to be a slight spiciness in the aftertaste. Overall this is a very acceptable summer beer.
