From old tasting notes. Reddish brown color topped by a rocky beige head. Buttery toasted malt aroma. Rich roasted malt flavor has a real earthy character that clings to your mouth. A nice dark ale.

A guilty pleasure of mine while watching minor league hockey. Dark brown pour. Nose and taste of chocolate malts. Not very complex, but tasty all around beer. Rated 6/15/02

Tap at the Porterhouse brewpub. What is with this brewery and the cooked corn??? Brown with a tan head and clear. Cooked corn/garbage aroma, with malty roasty undertones. Sweet malt/light chocolate flavor. Roasty finish.

On tap at the Porterhouse Brewpub. This was the special on the sampler. This was interesting, had that nutty flavor I find appealing in a brown ale. Very nice.

On tap at the Porterhouse Brew Pub. Poured a medium brown color with a small tan head. Nutty and roasted aroma and flavors. Fizzy body. Out of the 7 beers I had there tonight, this was my favorite.

Deep red with a nice head. This is a fairly watery, mild brown ale with little nuttiness. Sort of a Newcastle Brown lite. A good way to introduce newbies to "dark beer" because it tastes as mild as can be! Roasty smell and taste.

Looks and tastes like a watered down porter - but in a good way! It actually has a very nice flavor that grows on you the further into your glass you go. Good beer.

I suspect my sample may have been a bit past its prime. Nothing wrong with it, but nothing especially right. The flavor was murky, full of undifferentiated malt and no hop definition.

This was one of their best brews...had it at Porterhouse Pub in PA..........

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2003 Smells better than it tastes. Smoky flavor, but too watery for the style. Needs more girth. My least favorite River Horse brew.
