Rivertown Tequilana Sunrise
Draft at the brewery, served in a flight. Pours a clear, bright pink with a small pink-tinted white head that settles into a ring. Big apple and cherry, with agave sweetness. Mild tartness. Light-bodied, with modest carbonation and a fruity, sweet, tangy mouthfeel. Fine.

Rivertown Grapefruit DIPA
Draft at the brewery in Monroe, served in a flight. Pours a clear bright gold with a small white head that settles into a film and ring while leaving a sheet of lace in the glass. Big grapefruit, especially in the aroma. More fruity in the nose and bitter in the flavor. Pale and semi-sweet malts, hay. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a citrusy, dry, malty mouthfeel. Surprisingly good.

Rivertown Ember
Draft at the Monroe brewery, served in a flight. Pours a barely clouded dull copper with a small white head that settles into a ring and a wispy island of film. Notes of banana, caramel, earth, toast, wet leaves, chocolate, and toffee. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry, malty, earthy mouthfeel. It's fine, just not something I'd be buying six packs of.

Rivertown Babbs
Draft at the Monroe brewery, served in a flight. Pours a deep brown with amber highlights and a moderate creamy beige head that settles intoa film and ring while leaving a sheet of lace in the glass. Has a dry and woody and lightly roasty nose, with just a little bit of sweetness. Then the flavor has some dark fruit, tart and tangy, showing signs of infection. Earth, tobacco, cream, rust, and soy. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a roasty, earthy, tangy mouthfeel. They shouldn't be serving this. It's off.

Rivertown Archer's Ale
Draft in a flight at the Monroe brewery. Pours a clear copper with a moderate off-white head that settles into a ring and island of film while lacing the glass. Notes of caramel and toasted malts, nuts, earth, grass, tea, citrus peel, and florals. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry, malty, earthy, slightly bitter mouthfeel. Decent take on the style.

Rivertown / Yazoo Oro Agrio
This is a beer share beer, big bold flavors that punch your palate. Terribly out of balance, very sour with some acetic notes starting to show, minerally rich(salt I assume), fruity tequila barrel notes. Glad I got to share this bottle.

Rivertown 3984 Lager
Poured from 12 ounce bottle bought as part of mixed six pack from Western Hills Kroger, tasted on October 28, 2017. Hazy gold color, nondescript aroma, tastes like a standard lager with fruit flavoring added to disguise that fact. Odd but OK.

Rivertown IPA
Rated on 10-26-2017. Bottle. The appearance is a large off-white foamy head that is mostly lasting, transparent golden amber body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is citrus hops, pine hops, tropical fruit, earthy, grapefruit, sweet, floral, and malt. The flavor presents light-medium bitterness, citrus hops, tropical fruit, grapefruit, malt, and sweet. The mouthfeel is moderate carbonation, clean and crisp. This beer is light-medium bodied. This beer has a bitter finish and it is easy drinking. There is nothing all that special about this beer but it is a beer that I would drink again.

Rivertown 3984 Lager
Rated on 10-20-2017. (Bottle) The appearance is a small foamy, fizzy white head that mostly diminished, bright yellow transparent body, lively, fast rising carbonation, and spotty lacing. The aroma is fruity and malt. The flavor presents pale malt, some fruitiness and sweet. The mouthfeel is medium carbonation and clean. This beer is light-medium bodied. This is an easy drinking beer and nothing very special. It does not have much taste to it making it a boring and subtle beer.

Rivertown Divergent
Decatur Beer Festival. Pours hazy yellow with a nice porcelain head. Aroma features tart fruit, fresh malt and funky tones. Flavor offers more malt, about as much tart pomme and tropical, and a little less funk than the aroma. Mouthfeel presents decent body and fair fizz. Diverge for it.

Rivertown Soulless
Decatur Beer Festival. Pours slightly hazy mahogany with a nice buff head. Aroma offers tart dark fruit, toasted malt, caramel, and a hint of hops. Flavor continues the tart fruit and malt more than the caramel or hops, but still good. Mouthfeel features fair body and fizz. Soulless, but spirited.

Rivertown Ember
This bottled brew from a bottle shop was served at a cool temperature and poured a very small sized head of foamy bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind no visible carbonation slightly hazy golden brown colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was brown malt. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish with a mellow malt hop aftertaste. The ok flavor contained notes of brown malt and bread dough. A decent one but not one that I would consider drinking again.

Rivertown Tequilana
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - Betton - 12 oz bottle. Dark golden pour, medium thick snow white head, Aroma has some off vegal notes, which I'm sure is agave, faint whiff of apples. Flavor is kind of bland, the agave kind of deadens the apple sweetness. Mouthfeel is distant and too dry,

22 oz. bottle purchased locally, although I can't remember where. Pours a mostly clear dark orange with an inch of off-white head that takes a while to settle into an uneven cap on the liquid. Bretty funk, soap, florals, biscuit, bread, stone fruit, grass, a hint of spice, and wet leaves. Medium-bodied, with medium-plus soft carbonation and a funky, dry, bitter mouthfeel that lingers. Not bad but doesn't seem to be getting more interesting with age.

Medium body and moderate carbonation. Well rounded and quaffable.

Rivertown IPA
12 oz. bottle from Higher Gravity. Pours a barely cloudy deep gold with a big eggshell white head, foamy, that takes a long time to settle into an uneven ring and film while leaving soapy lace in the glass. Notes of soap, grapefruit peel, pale and sweet malts, and booze. The bitterness overwhelms everything else here. Light-medium bodied, with medium carbonation. Just too uneven and without any depth or balance. Misfire.

Rivertown 3984 Lager
12 oz. bottle from Root Cellar. Pours a somewhat cloudy gold with a finger of white head that settles quickly into a ring and film. Surprisingly toasty aroma, with roasted malts and sugars, corn flakes, and hay. The flavor is super light, with minerals, pale and sweet and roasted malts, straw, and a hint of soap. Light-bodied, with modest carbonation and a mostly clean, slightly malty and mineralic mouthfeel. I guess it does what it’s supposed to do.

Rivertown Winter Ale
Bottle. Pours a clear, brownish beer with a thin off white head on top. Aroma has lots of cinnamon and molasses in there, burnt caramel, dried oranges. Flavor is light sweet and roasty, lots of cinnamon in there, making it rather spicy in a not hot way. Quite a watery body nonetheless, short light sweet aftertaste. Gentle carbonation.. quite ok.

Rivertown Roebling Porter
Pretty good, I really enjoyed the coffee in this, it had a good punchy flavor, tasted like a good cold brew to some extent, and the vanilla gave it a pseudo-cream element, of course there was a decent semi-sweet chocolatey porter underneath.

Rivertown Nice Melons
12oz bottle. Pours a dehydrated urine yellow-gold with no real head, just a small quickly-dissipating white ring. Aroma is sickly sweet artificial watermelon candy. Taste is vaguely tart but sweet dominates; artificial watermelon, some wheat, and a little lemon. Artificial sweetener aftertaste. Light body. Fizzy, moderate carbonation. Crisp mouthfeel.

Rivertown Barrel Aged Old Sour Cherry Porter
Bottle @ THT. Pours a deep dark reddish beer with a small, light reddish head on top. Aroma has lots of sour red fruits, cherries, bourbon on the background, applecompote and a big hint of Brett. Flavor is very stringent and tart, dry mouthfeel, lots of cherries in there, little to no bourbon, some tannines and a long dry tart aftertaste. Good stuff, whish there was more bourbon though.
