Made with all natural barley and hops - pure, refreshing, smooth, nutty, caramelly rich and very satisfying - this unfiltered ale is brewed as a tribute to the brewery's lifeblood, our beloved Truckee River. Certified organic by NV Department of Agriculture.

Seems like your typical red ale. Not very suprising in any aspect, except that it is unfiltered so it's a bit hazy. If they bottled, it could go for a bit of time in a bottle, not too sure how it would hold up in a Growler though.

I'm not sure if I would ever get this again with so many other good offerings on tap. (319 characters)

The head had subsided before the pint had even been served to me. The color is a cloudy deep red that is almost brown. The aroma is of sweet malt with a touch of noble hops. Flavor is very clean with a maltiness that is matched by the hops, yet both are very mild. Mouthfeel is very thin and this beer is pretty watery for a Red. No bitterness from the hops or the malt is detected and i must say this beer is very boring. Overall i would rather walk to the liquor store and buy whatever was in the case than this beer. (519 characters)
