Sample at Malmö beer- and whiskey festival. Dominated by caramel, but there’s just something odd about the beer i didn’t like and couldn’t put my finger on. Maybe the bottle was slightly old, didn’t have an opportunity to check.

Golden color out of the bottle with a foamy white head. Grainy nose. Some caramel sweetness, grainy malts and some dark toast. OK for a red.

I really wish I could give this beer higher marks. I have tremendous respect for Thomas Creek and the work they do. Sadly, their flagship isn’t as good as some of their other beers. It’s hard to say that considering how perfect the technical factors are. The red color, tight head, carbonation, mouthfeel, and lacing are all faultless. Unfortunately, the flavor and aroma are on the weak side. River Falls does too many things right to write it off, but don’t expect to be amazed.

Pours light translucent amber with medium head and minimal lacing. Aromas are sweet citrus. Taste of roasted malts and bitter grapefruit-like flavors. The beer’s ok, neither good nor bad. Wouldn’t buy again.

Very thin aroma. Some light caramel. Similar flavour with some weak citrus hop. Dissapointing.
