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.

On tap. Golden yellow, a little hazy. Medium taste, not strong. Goes down smoothly and very drinkeable, especially on a hot summer day. Not bad but nothing exceptional.

12 oz. bottle in a shaker. True to it’s description... Pure and simple. No complex flavors, but pretty enjoyable nonetheless.

Sharp bitter malt aroma. Cloudy golden color with a small white head. Light bitter beginning quickly developing a mild bitter finish that lingers.

hazy golden color; frothy white head. Smells of cereal and nuts. Taste is smooth, lightly bitter and sweet.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2011
Pours a hazy golden yellow color with a massive frothy white head that takes forever to subside. Way too much carbonation. It took several minutes to pour twelve oz into a pint glass. Slightly earthy aroma with lots of bready yeast along with subtle spice and light fruit. Faint peppery presence with hints of grass, straw, apple, lemon peel and banana. Medium bodied but on the lighter end with some tight carbonation and zesty spice. Dry and earthy with hints of grass, straw and pepper. Bready yeast is the most prominent flavor but it doesn’t add much to the palate. Sweetness toward the finish with hints of apple and lemon peel. Kind of bland but somewhat easy to drink.

Pours hazy gold with thin film of a head. Aroma was grass and some wheat. Taste was sweet with minimal bitters on the finish. Very watery.

A good summer bear. Appearance reminiscent of pee, but it goes down so smooth.

Tonkun (847) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 15, 2011
Bottle. Yellow orange and cloudy pour with white head. A bit of citrus and some hop at the end but not much more. Easy to drink and not offensive but not much character. Nice summer ale but there are better and cheaper options.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
sarahmarie (265) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 12, 2011
Sunshine yellow gleaming in the glass, a Summer beauty. Tons of active bubbles race around. Not much offered in the smell, pale malts, soft graininess and a dash of sweetness. Very straightforward and approachable flavor, with simplicity in mind. Lacking any fruitiness, or hops, just straightforward crisp dry palate with light malt sweetness. I could drink a case of this like it was Miller Lite, however, I am looking for a little more flavor and character in my beer.

MadIndian (2366) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2011
On tap at brewery. Yellow / Golden/ hazy pour with a citrus / lemon aroma. Taste was lemon, spice and bread. The after taste left a mild grainy feeling in my mouth. Enjoyable. It reminded me a lot of Sam Adams Summer Ale.
