Smells of spicy wheat. pours a bright yellow/golden color. Giant pillowy head that disappears quickly. Taste is slightly citrus wheat. Very watery and uninteresting.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2008 This is a re-rate since the ownership change at River Horse. Unfortunately, it’s still a rather "plain jane" golden ale. Not much in the way of flavor or anything else. No hop presence whatsoever. Rather pale shade of yellow with minimal head and carbonation. It seems that almost all River Horse brews have a similar flavor..........either from the base malts used, or some sort of infection? I’m optimistic and guessing the former. The only real compliment I can give this, is that it goes down better than most macros.

Draft-Golden clear coloring, poured with a medium to large amounts of head possibly due to an over pumped micro brew keg. Slight fruit flavoring, very slight hops. Overall, decently enjoyable but probably would pursue other options.

Clear golden orange, large diminishing white head. Aroma is sweet grainy with vague fruit notes. Very light bodied, very simple.

This was pretty refreshing served very cold. As it warms it deteriates a bit as the light malt character turns a bit sweet. Just swig this one from the bottle.

Bottle: If only there were no word limits, because one word sums this beer up: boring. The appearence is standard and boring. Golden in color wome laces of carbonation. The aroma wasn’t really boring, more nonexistant. The flavor was also boring, good, but boring.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle at the Hagerstown Suns Beer Tasting... Mostly clear yellow ale with a small, fizzy white head. Both the aroma and flavor are sweet and grainy with specks of hay, orange blossom honey and herbal hops. Light-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and less-than-medium carbonation. Sweet finish.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle sampled with Beerded_one. Pours pale golden with head that resembled spit. Aroma of sweet malts, grain, and slight hops. Flavor is sweet, weak, no presence of hops, tastes like corn flavored sugar water. Thin body, horrible brew.
