A nice light beer, aroma was very nice and in my opinion was better than the actual taste. Will buy again due to drinkability

Bottle poured into a frosted pint glass produced a thin white head that dissipated quickly and an translucent yellow-gold body that reminded me of most wheat beers. Very sweet, reminded me if white grapes, no bitterness. I enjoyed this with a pizza at Espositos in Stony Creek Mills, PA.

Decent stuff. Bright and sunny yellow, crisp lemony nose. Nice fruitiness, bit bready, decently hoppy. Not incredibly complex stuff, but it’s not trying to be.

Pours straw color with a straw taste.Quickly fading head, and after my first taste, this beer will quickly fade down my throat! This is what a summer beer should be! Good flavor, light tasting and you feel like having a few on a hot summer night!

A nice pale golden color with very little head. Sweet aroma of honeysuckle and camomile. The taste is very clean and crisp. Some more of the honey comes through in the taste and has a great hops balance. There seems to be a slight spiciness in the aftertaste. Overall this is a very acceptable summer beer.

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

ChainGangGuy (4420) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - DEC 24, 2007
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.
