Cloudy deep blond color with compact head. Malt and fruity hops aroma, delicate, nice. Dry mouthfeel, not too weak, with toffee malt flavor, reasonable bitterness, and very nice soft hop resins, also some hop fruitiness.
At this gravity, a real pleasure; well brewed, balanced, fresh.
Tap at Deschutes Brewery & Public House, Portland - 07/11/12.
Menu notes that this beer was brewed in the Portland brewing facility - also listed as ’Fresh Hop River Ale’ @ 4% ABV.
Lightly hazed golden/amber with a thin white head.
Nose is pale malts, caramel, floral notes.
Taste follows, a little rye, dark caramel flavours.
A little thin on the palate, light in body, bitter finish.

On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a clear golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of dry wheat, hay, and some dry hoppy notes. Flavour is quite subtle and light, with dry notes of hay and wheat, grassy notes, and corn. Pretty light, refreshing and unassuming on the palate. Decent stuff. brokensail (16645) - Dublin, California, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Pale golden pour with a white head. Floral hops, lemon peel, and some grass. Maybe a bit of biscuit. Really light aroma. The flavor is pretty light, too. Mildly bitter, some citrus and grass notes, and a floral hop quality. Some bread and biscuit sweetness. That’s pretty much it... bhensonb (15753) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 8, 2013
Bottle from Total Wine in Folsom, CA. Pours light amber with a slight white head. Aroma is a strange mix of toffee and floral. Med minus body. Flavor starts fruity, gets a little mixed hop, and then goes a little wheaty. The pleasures are too subtle for me.

335ml bottle. Butter, cheese and grapefruit in the aroma. Flavor is grapefruity with a heavy butter bread malt note. Dogbrick (13759) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 23, 2013
Sample at the Bend brewpub. The beer is a clear copper color with a medium thin white head that evaporates quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops and bready malt. Light-bodied with flavors of hops, citrus and sweet malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a citrusy hops aftertaste. Decent overall. hopdog (13102) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 9, 2014
12oz bottle. Poured a golden color with an averaged sized head. Some stale grassiness, grains, and citrus. slowrunner77 (12804) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 17, 2014
"A blonde/golden ale with a fresh northwest blast of hops in the nose. Cereal and light hops. A very nice, mellow fruity light ale - good with food or as a starter :)" BVery (11361) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - APR 8, 2013
Bottle. Mostly clear light orange pour with a small wispy white head. Mild grassy/earthy hop aroma and taste. Grainy malts. Easy drinking and pretty flavorful. Good yard beer for the summer months.
