The River Horse beers are not real favorites of mine. Nothing offensive about this beer but nothing much to say. Light hazy yellow pour with some sweetness, hops and malts.

12oz bottle. Nose is of hops and slight hint of marshmellow. Has the slightest haze possible, dark yellow complection. Very light flavor of cream and your basic run of the mill lager. Smooth and Crisp, Ok.

12 oz bottle. Pours slightly hazy dark yellow body. Aroma is strange. Taste is light, smooth palate - maybe some cream in the finish.

Nothing much to speak of. A little below average for the season. Reminds me of an old style Piels or Ballantine.

This is basically a michelob lager. Not bad, but not worth it. Better off buying a cheap pale lager.

Pretty weak offering actually. Pours yellow, thin head, not much of an aroma to speak of. Unimaginative flavoring. Goes down easy though. Lots of carbonation.

I will make this rating short and sweet. This beer taste like Coors with a yellow Label on the bottle. I was not Impressed at all.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle from msiano. Pours a clear golden orange with a small fizzy white head. Aroma of grain, lemon grass, and a slight touch of soap. Crisp palate with a light to medium body and very noticable carbonation. Flavor of grain, and only a slight hint of fruit. If you need to bring something to a BBQ to drink out of the bottle this isn’t bad. If you ant something complex with lots of aromas and flavors to really sip then move along.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Pours a hazy, golden body with an explosive, huge head. River Horse certainly doesn’t cheat in the carbonation department.
Smell: Sugary-smelling aroma of crackers, a hint of pepper, and a slight pear-like fruitiness.
Taste: Wheaty, crackery flavor with a medium level of sweetness. Citrusy. Light pear esters. Pinch of spice. Not much in the way of bitterness. Dry, zesty finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Well carbonated.
Drinkability: Y’know, it’s not so terrible once all of that damnable carbonation settles down.
