I picked up this bottle a few months ago on my travels to Pittsburgh. Thanks to Ale Street News, we happened to stop by the brewpub. Anyways, cleaning out the fridge of beers I need to review. Here we go. 12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: The beer pours a nice two finger head that is reducing very slowly. Clarity is great and can see plenty of bubbles to show that the beer had good carbonation. Beer is also a nice golden yellow color.

Smell: Sweet malts, grainy, and some hints of citrus.

Taste: Same as the smell. All some hints of honey too.

Mouthfeel: Goes down a little smooth, but could use a little less carbonation. Still tastes great.

Overall: Would buy this again if I was driving to Pittsburgh or had a rental car. Since it is only 20 minutes out of Pittsburgh, RP is a good place to get some brewpub beer. It was for us.

Appears a pale blonde golden hue with a bright white head foaming thick. Aroma has pale biscuit malts with an air of herbal grassy hops. Nothing special here, a clean tasting blonde ale with biscuit malts and semi sweet biscuit malt flavors. Mouthfeel is light bodied carbonation is moderate nothing offensve. Drinkability overall is decent just something designed for the mass produced beer drinker.

Poured into a tulip, this ale has a hazy golden-blonde body with a finger of fizzy white head that fades quickly leaving next to nothing behind on the surface or the glass.

Lots of bready malts in the nose, as well as some hints of spice and citrus. More of the citrus on the tongue than the nose but still quite a bit of biscuit / bready malts in the flavor profile. Also picking up an unusual fruit finish in this - pear maybe?

Medium bodied with nice carbonation, and refreshing. I dont have a whole lot of experience with this particular style, but I liked this one. It doesn't seem readily available around here but I would certainly grab this one again, especially in the warmer months.

Very easy to drink, no harsh taste and not loaded with a high abv so a good summer beer. Just ok on the whole though. Nothing too special or groundbreaking here. It is your typical blonde, but it is a bit light looking, more like a macro brew beer than a craft beer, but not bad either. WOrth trying, it may fir your unique taste.

The first review for this beer IN A BOTTLE! Picked up for 3 bucks at my local Beer Nutz (pretty much the cost of a pint there with cool bottle art!)

A - Pours a nicely carbonated brew with an inch of head that quickly dispatches and turns into a ring of lace. Pure yellow straw color.

S - On the nose it really is sweet so a pretty malty brew. Cascade hops as well temp the nose.

T - Nice! The taste is as sweet as the nose. Very mild bitterness so it balanced pretty well. Taste of mild wheat and hops followed by a sweet malty finish. Good.

M - Light to medium bodied. Succession-able.

D - Overall this was one thing I didn't expect from Rivertown! Not only is the beer great but now we have the Blonde and IPA in bottle for home consumption! I really hope others get bottled as well since they really are a great brewery. Nice!

Pours a hazy straw yellow color with a white head. In the aroma, small earth, biscuit malt, hint of citrus. In the taste, sweet biscuit like maltiness, citrus notes, and a small dry yeastiness. A small bite and medium bodied mouthfeel, with a clean small citrus and maltiness in the aftertaste. Decent blonde, but average.
