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. jtclockwork (17070) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 12, 2010
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 MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - SEP 18, 2004
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. Jine (903) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - SEP 8, 2004
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. hopdog (12953) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 29, 2004
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. raymow (1732) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 12, 2003
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. urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - FEB 13, 2003
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. SETANTA (582) - Bangor, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 29, 2002
This was one of their best brews...had it at Porterhouse Pub in PA.......... freekyp (2387) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - OCT 28, 2002
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.
