Pours Golden with a thick white head. Aroma is grainy. Tastes of lemon and hopps with a dry finish. Easy drinking but I’ve had better. motelpogo (7704) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 26, 2004

river. one of the lamer apa´s, very thin, light hint of pinecone aroma, then biscuit sweetness and no real finish
I would not have classified this as an APA. It certainly has hops but is more bland than I expect in an APA. matta (1140) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 27, 2004
I found this locally, it was the last bottle they had but I know it was fresh because the owner of the store refuses to sell skunk beer.

Pours a slightly foggy golden body with a thick whipped white head. The aroma and flavor are matching.. fairly dull! Mostly a mixing of caramel, rye, buttered rice & sweet corn with an assemblage of woodsy hops… I cant say I’m all that impressed. It’s not a bad brew but it’s boring and run of the mill. I’d drink this as a fall back 6 pack in the frig beer that I could hand off to any shmuck the need a brew! The palate is nice though, slightly baskety and buttery.. medium .

River. Thin lemony, grany/malty pale ale, surprisingly not much hops, east to drink, not interesting though.
Pours a light golden in color with minimal white head. Flavors of flat pabst and everything else nice. Aromas of the same. Very light bodied and unsatisfying BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - APR 5, 2004
Pale straw gold color with a light head. The aroma is tangy with notes of grain. The flavor is a little dirty and bland, not hoppy at all, more mild. Finishes bland. bah! Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 3, 2004
Pours flaxen with floaties. No head to speak of and small lacing. Strong grain aromas, sweet. Very little hops. It reminds me of preboiled wort. The flavor does not differ much. Sweet malty body... almost too sweet. Far too unrefined. calivania (62) - USA - MAR 22, 2004
This beer begs the question, Does northern Califonia need its own personal Rolling Rock? If you take that old favorite of yard work summers back east and add a generous helping of lightly toasted hops to finish off damp basement malt, you will have this beer. It would tast better I think if it were very hot out, or if you just finished tarring a roof ala Shawshank Redemtion. Braudog (6712) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - FEB 15, 2004
Poured cloudy yellow with thin white head. No aroma to speak of. There's little flavor, just a musty sweet malt character. Not that good.
