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.

12oz bottle-pours a thin white head and yellow color. Aroma is musty grain, secondary light/fruity (saaz?) hops. Taste is musty yeasty/grain, secondary light/grassy hops, fruity-raspberry. OK but not memorable. Good effervescence.

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.

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.

Prcaus (159) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 30, 2007
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.

ABUSEDGOAT (2413) - California, USA - MAY 11, 2007
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.

Clear yellow, white head, sweet aroma, lightly sweet flavor, hint of hops, mellow. Nice as a thirst quencher.

Beerdedone (2663) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 15, 2006
Bottle sampled with Stegosaurus. Pours golden with no head. Aroma is sweet and grainy. Flavor is sweet, grainy, and cornlike. Yet i found it to be drinkable.

hopscotch (9214) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 21, 2006
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.
