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.

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Bottle. Pours clear amber with a medium, frothy and creamy off-white head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is caramel and cookie malt, pear esters and light earthy hops. Flavor is malt forward and dominant with light hops and bitterness and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Very light amber appearance. Medium light body. Flavors of sweet molases, hops, and honey. Hops right up front, w/ decent carbonation. Sweet floral/berry flavor which I don’t care for.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours amber with plenty of fluffy off-white head. Aroma is sweet with light fruit notes. Taste is also light and fluffy. Solid beer but not a whole lot of complexity.
