Rivet whets your sensors with Caramel malts and Willamette hops to produce a more colorful and flavorful version of its English relatives – the bitter clan. Its toffee sweetness and mild bitterness make rivet the perfect complement to backyard barbecues and burgers.

This is a great Irish ale. It is not hoppy, and it is smooth and easy to drink.

hotstuff (4762) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 13, 2013
Rated on 9-07-2013 at Mad Anthony OktoBEERfest (Fort Wayne) Draft - This beer pours a large creamy, smooth beige head with good retention, transparent amber body, good amount of lacing, and slow rising carbonation. The Aroma is malty, caramel, lightly hoppy, and lightly fruity. The Taste is sweet, malty, caramel, hint of toffee, banana, and lightly hoppy. The Palate is very smooth and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, this beer is very quaffable, a session beer, worth trying, and a beer that I recommend and would drink again.

2oz taster on tap, at HopCat Broad Ripple. Clear orange color. Thin off-white head, leaving good thicker lace. Toasty malt, some orange citrusy hop. Light to moderate bitter, light to moderate sweet. Medium body. Smooth, kind of soft, sort of creamy lighter carbonation. Really nice, balanced, complex irish ale.

sudomorph (1025) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 20, 2013
Pours a crystal clear, deep amber with a half finger, off-white, frothy head that thins to a film. Light bubbles can be seen rising to the surface. Very mild lacing. Aroma is faint with hints of bread and caramel. Taste is a slight bitter with a short bready, malty, aftertaste. Low-medium body and carbonation. Bubbly, slightly watery, clean mouth feel. Overall a very drinkable beer. Tasty and refreshing. Would buy again.

tmongoose (2074) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 6, 2015
Draft that pours semi cloudy red color with minimal white head. Aroma of malt and caramel malts and a minimal hop base. The flavor is mild to medium caramel mslt base. A little more pronounced hop flavor but still quite mild. Overall just a decent red ale.
