This is a very light beer. Not much aroma. I would like to compare this to a coors light beer. Yuk

A pretty standard blonde ale. One of riverhorse’s better beers. Easy drinking, but nothing stands out as truly outstanding about it.

Cloudy pale with River horse standard selection of hops. An easy summer sipper for hops lovers.

This beer doesn’t do anything in spectacular fashion, but it’s light, it’s easy on the eyes, and it sits well on the tongue. You can do a lot worse than this beer as summer ales go.

JDBaker11058 (1764) - Maryland, USA - AUG 17, 2015
Appearance: clear medium gold, short white head, minimal lacing. Aroma: crackers, light grass, hint of mineral water. Taste: saltine crackers, white bread, lemongrass, dough. Finish: crackery malts linger surprisingly long, with just a hint of floral hops and a little minerality; carbonation dries things out nicely. Notes: A good golden ale. Basic and not a huge beer, character-wise, but well-executed, bright and refreshing. Like a slightly less-hoppy kolsch. Finish was the best part. Draft at Fins in Cape May, New Jersey.

Quick3Beers (777) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 5, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy amber from a bottle with a slight white head. Malty aroma, not strong, wheat flavor, maybe a slight lemon but rather bland. Meh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass. Golden color. One inch white head slowly dissipates. Some lacing. Hardly anu aroma. Light taste. Some corn and barley notes. Light easy finish. Light to moderate carbonation. Nice lighter summer beer. Nothing fascinating. Simple, smooth and refreshing.

Patrickctenchi (5714) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUN 19, 2015
Bottle: Slightly hazed, light yellow-gold with a puffy white head. Grain, light fruit scent. Taste is sweet, a little corn, grain malt, sweet lemon. More body than expected for the low ABV....not bad.

shrubber85 (9997) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 17, 2015
Bottle. Creamy barley malt and straw aroma. Hazy golden yellow with moderate head. Sweet creamy barley malt and moderately bitter hay flavor. Body on the light side. Nice easy drinking beer.

Light but quite pleasant beverage with a spicy herbal character that tastes better than it smells. Wee bit one-dimensional as it just fades off on the finish.
