COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Deep golden and malty, with a spicy hop flavor and a subtle, well-balanced hop bitterness, Rio Blanco is a uniquely Texan interpretation of an English-style pale ale. The addition of Czech hops gives the ale a refreshing crispness and flavor that will satisfy you under the hottest Texas sun.

Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - AUG 5, 2004
Suitably grassy, spicy, hop aroma, some faint grainy malt notes and citrus. Golden amber color, hazy and lightly sedimented, average head. Flavor is also full of juicy hop, again spicy and citric, dashes of pepper, and a very slight maltiness late. Finishes dry and bitter. Light-medium bodied, vigorous carbonation on the palate. Easy-drinking. Could perhaps use a bit more balance, but fine for what it is. Thanks, Louis!

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2004 Bottle pours a dull hazy golden, medium fizzly off-white head, plenty o carbonation, yeasty bits abound, with decent lacing.   Light hops and citrus on the nose.   Forwardly malty/grainy with a bit of a hop bite.   Somewhat grassy, maybe a bit of overripe fruit.   Slight astringent taste on the finish.   Decent body and mouthfeel.   Not the best, but not bad.   Thanks goes out to 123456green for the trade!

RaginCajun (320) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 24, 2004
Subtle hopping with lots of drinkability. Faint aroma, cloudy goldenrod body with a thin head. Nothing too special here but it is good for a beer from central Texas.

rajendra82 (1093) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - MAY 31, 2004
Brown bomber with a simplistic label depicting the Blanco River. The color of the beer is hazy golden orange with a fizzy carbonation at first. The head is about an inch thick and short lived. The aroma is very faintly hoppy with pine resin. The taste has butterscotch like malt, and pine/grapefruit hops. The beer is light to medium thick on the palette, with a dry aftertaste. A decent beer, but feels a bit indecisive as to where it wants to go. Thanks to 123456green for this bottle amopng his samples of Texas beer.

UPDATED: JUN 10, 2004 Very pale and very good. Pours light golden brown with med head that fades somewhat fast. Got a very strong bite yet not too bad. Good offering fron Texas. Finish is calm. However gets rather sweet at the end which makes 2 beers plenty.

pivo (2685) - GERMANY - APR 11, 2004
Light clean nose with some cracked grain aromas, pale orange color, low head. Toasted malt and a little caramel flavor. Light berry tastes. Bitter-ish end. Smooth and clean palate and a good balance, for sure, but overall nothing special. Decent.
