Rivertowne Pour House Brewmaster Reserve Cranberry
Tap, magic tree. No real aroma, quite sterile. First taste is slightly tart. Certainly there is the presence of cranberries. Rather dull like many fruit beers as the session continues. Like the average fruit beer. Some cigarette butte in the finish.

Rivertowne Hala Kahiki Pineapple Beer
Hazy pale yellow color out of the can with a thin white head. Sweet pineapple juice nose. This drinks like pineapple candy. Sweet, fruity,and lively on the tongue. A novelty at best.

Rivertowne Old Wylie’s IPA
How is it, in an era where breweries are throwing C&D’s at each other all willie-nillie, that Rivertowne and Rivertown can coexist, seemingly peacefully? Or have they had their squabbles? I suppose I could google it to find out, but that’s too much effort. I’ll just choose to sit back and think everything is fine.

Rivertowne Hala Kahiki Pineapple Beer
appearance: clear gold, short soapy white head. aroma: pineapple, apple juice. taste: pineapple, pineapple syrup. finish: lingering sweetness. notes: Sample draught, glad I didn’t get the whole pint. Way too sweet, pineapple felt a little artificial. Nice and unique, but not for me. Can’t see how this would be refreshing in summer. Draught at Fins, Cape May vacation 2016.

Rivertowne Old Wylie’s IPA
Pours a coppery orange with a medium head of white foam. Aroma is not very prominent. Some malts and light citrus with notes of caramel. Fairly refreshing with a malt backbone and a sharp bite at the finish. Feels like a red IPA. Pretty good. Not much pine or citrus flavors. Just a tad bitter aftertaste. Enjoyable.

Sample @ Beers of the Burgh Fest. Pours a clear straw yellow with a large white head of foam. Tart tart sweet aroma of pineapple. Starts out sweet like watered down pineapple juice then ends with a slightly flowery and metallic aftertaste like the acidity from a can. Not as good as I had expected.

Rivertowne/Bloom Brew/Hop Farm/Reclamation Plum Puckered
Tap bocktown. Murky lighter brown. Ever so mild fruit perfume nose. Mild saison taste, hides alky wee. Well behaved. Somewhat frui or plum taste on the saison backbone but you have to look for it. I guess the plum is responsible for the friendly tartness. Pretty good co2. Overall not bad, better than expected. Decent mild fruit finish.

Decent lighter beer on tap at Patrick’s Pub in Moon. Aroma was average. Slightly tart with notes of yeast and dust. Pour was a nice hazy medium gold with a one finger white head. Taste was light and airy. Slightly tart with yeast and light malt in the front and just s note of plum in the finish. Alcohol was hidden well as it tasted like a tart flavored seltzer water. Nice carbonation.

Rivertowne Schloppy Monster Double IPA
Initial impression from a can is not good - big foaming pop the lid all over my floor, slightly annoying, just slightly. Once I corral it into the glass it has a dull smacking IPA aroma. Now its evolving to simply flat IPA IPA BS all over my lager loven tongue, you mahfah. This beer session proves, and simply proves, that a local micro brewer can make more terribly on style double ipa than can be found worldwide. RPF, you did it. If you like DIPA, reverse my numbers. FO too! One big freaking roto-5 horse power tiller, across my field of taste receptors. Oh, the finish’s oh so volatile, even if you know it’s over 8%! Kicks my asssssssssssssss...........

Rivertowne Aji Limo Lager
Industry. Quite dark and very mild dark lager impressions. Has a bit of a bite, fer sure. Somewhat astringent on the back end. Good up front with it’s tender dark beer come on. Then, that bitter thing sets in. A litle more pungent on the senses fer sure. If aji limo is a pepper, not sure if I detect it in here or not.

Rivertowne Rudolph’s Red
Can. Pours a clear reddish brown body with a one finger foamy beige head that left some light lace. The nose is a mix of fruitcake, caramel, light spiciness, a bit of alcohol, and a slight cherry like note. The flavor is a little odd, it’s fruity, but I feel like there’s an odd spiciness to this that I can’t quite identify. Finishes with some light peppery alcohol, lingering caramel, toffee, and cinnamon. Medium to full bodied, quite chewy and a little clingy, with minimal soft carbonation. Actually a pretty interesting beer. Not sure that it’s an award winner, but it does have a uniqueness to it.

Nice nutty and slight coffee scent. Boozey but easy to drink. Toasted malts and the oatmeal smooths out what could be too heavy and bitter. Nice and easy with the balance you want. Medium in mouth, not watery, not too thick. Tap

Rivertowne Always a Home Game
Obtained a can via a trade and was surprised to find it to be a very decent golden lager. Nothing terribly exciting but nonetheless a satisfying and refreshing beer. I’m not a fan of most domestic macro lagers so was pleased to see that this product was definitely a step up from that grouping of beers. If this were available in my geographic area, I’d be happy to purchase a 6-pack.
