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.

Had this on tap and was disappointed. Very simple. Had a hard time finding hops. Color was light (that may have set the tone for me). I wouldn’t call it a swill, but it sure fits into my "lawnmower" catagory

Pours a straw color with almost no head. No lacing. Aroma is heavily bread tainted. Taste is hoppy with a little spice at the end.....pepper???

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - MAY 19, 2005
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.

cfranz (261) - Acton, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 18, 2005
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.

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 wasn’t cold enough.

I love going to The River Horse Brewery for a sampling when I’m 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.

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - MAY 10, 2005
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.

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. I’d have to disagree with my good friend tsarman (the previous rater) on this beer. I’ll grab sixpacks of this over many other things for some summer grillin/yard work brew

tsarman (794) - Northern, New Jersey, USA - APR 24, 2005
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.

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.
