22oz into a snifter.

A. Clear bright orange/copper body with a small white head.

S. Lots of grapefruit notes, cracker and caramel malt.

T. Pine, grass, light toffee, a bit of citrus. Dry, almost too dry.

M. Light-bodied with moderate carbonation.

O. A decent pale ale, which is a bit too dry and grassy for its own good. Next time skip the Munich malt and pick some more interesting hops.

New River pours with a dense honey-like amber-orange color and with golden highlights that pierce its haze. As the beer settles, a lather of loosely knit carbonation builds on top before dissolving back into the beer nearly halfway through the session.

Sweet malt aromas are of caramel, honey, bread and biscuit and give the beer its early impressions. As the beer warms, a melange of citrus peels, grass and tea leaves give the beer a higher hop appreciation. Apples and apricots provide a mild ester component that deviates from American pale ales and tend toward English varieties.

The beer's taste is sweet with the same caramel, honey, and bread character that the nose suggested. It's long taste of sweet grains keep the hops surpressed until late in the taste when the bitterness of citrus pith, pine resins, and herbal grasses strive for balance. Again, the taste of tea and fruit pronounce in that long drawn middle palate and offers an English-like taste.

Medium bodied throughout, the beer builds a dull weight that sits on the palate in lumbered fashion. Its carbonation is fast-fleeting and the relatively high rate of residual sweetness struggles to develop the beer toward any crispness, cleanliness, or dryness in finish.

New River is a fine drinking ale. But because of its lack of adherence to the classic pale ale style, its caught in obscurity and becomes quite an ambiguous taste.
