COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Great summer memories are born out of uncomplicated times. We've made that the basis for our Summer blonde recipe and kept this ale pure and simple. Relax and enjoy this all natural, light, golden beauty. A seasonal offering from the River Horse Brewing Company.

jasonp (1555) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - APR 21, 2005
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.

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.

hopdog (8530) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 29, 2004
On tap at the Porterhouse Brew Pub. Poured a light yellow with a small white head. Light fruity aroma and tastes. Nothing special.

Draft at the Grey Lodge in Philly. Boring beer. Tastes and looked like a blonde. Nothing special

biznizness (1070) - Mooresville, North Carolina, USA - AUG 14, 2004
Very light color... looks like Bug Light or something. Very smooth but not flavorful. A little bit sweet. My girlfriend thought it tasted like iced tea. It is a very drinkable beer though, goes down easy and quite refreshing.

obxdude10 (1971) - Limerick, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 8, 2004
Not a bad blonde ale, nothing too impressive though either, golden color, nice fluffy white head, fruity nose, very smooth & almost creamy body, a bit on the bland side, not a whole lot of flavors going on, but not a bad drinkable beer

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - JUL 21, 2004
Clear light yellow color with zero head. A bit of apple in the aroma but you gotta dig deep to get it. The taste is lacking any real beer characteristics. I’d drink this if a bottle of water wasn’t available. Maybe 3.5% alcohol.

PWalk (337) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 5, 2004
Extemely average ale that pours a bright yellow with a solid white head. Slightly hoppy but lacking in total flavor. Average at best.

mkobes (2138) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - JUL 2, 2004
On tap at Nj beer fest. Light yellow in color with a white head. Hoppy. Citrusy hops. Good beer. Medium in body.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - JUN 29, 2004
Tap at NJ Fest, 04. Light yellow with a white head. Cooked vege notes in the flavor and aroma. Thin, bland, boring.
