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.

Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a fluffy and lazing off-white head. The aroma is sweet spicy with strong notes of coriander. The flavor is sweet malty and spicy - again strong coriander notes. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2008
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of KAggie97. Pours a slightly hazy, deep golden with an extremely lively, tall, rough, off-white head. Lightly citrusy aroma with a whiff of yeast. Rather light in body with an excessive carbonation. Light notes of malt and citrus and yeast. The finish is dry. Oddly enough this mostly reminds me of a German Hefe! 120108

Koelschtrinker (19432) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 8, 2011
Mild hefig-kerniger Antrunk, spritzig. Kernig und getreidig bleibend, beides allerdings auf eher milden Niveau. Nun etwas bitterer, angenehm. Das Bier bleibt insgesamt mild und kann sich nicht mehr steigern, zum Ende kommt ein angenehmer Hopfenton hervor. Nettes Sommerbier ohne groen Tiefgang. 6/7/7/7/9/7

yngwie (16879) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 28, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2013 Bottle, 12oz. A clear, dark golden beer with a minimal sized off-white head. The aroma has piney, citrusy hops and a good dash of malts and some caramel. Too malty I think, but quite pleasant. Some sweetness in the flavor, just enough bitterness to deal with it, and some citrus and pine cones. Medium body, semi-dry and pleasantly carbonated. Some bitterness in the finish too. Overall, a bit malty for me, but it drinks easily and doesnt taste bad in any way. 130828

brokensail (16347) - Dublin, California, USA - MAY 14, 2010
A: THe pour is a crystal clear golden color with a mild and short lived white head. Plenty of carbonation bubbles emanate from the bottom of the glass. S: A sort of subdued hop aroma with a definite sweetness from the malt. The hops provide a citrus and floral notes, but are not very pungent. T: A fairly sweet pale ale up front with the caramel and bready malts shining through. Perhaps a bit of sweet oranges in there as well. The back end, however, has a nice bitterness to it and maybe a hint of fruit here as well. M: The body is light to medium with a crisp and plentiful carbonation to it. D: A very refreshing and easy drinking beer. I havent been overly impressed with the Real Ale beers Ive had to this point, but this one was quite nice.

Thanks to ericandersnavy for this one. Pours amber with a decent off-white head. Aroma is spicey. Medium body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is roasted malt and some spicey/floral/grassy hop. Damn refreshing. Finishes a bit earthy. Seems a little astringent. The grassy hop seems dominant.
