The River Ale is decent....nice for a summer session. Having this one in Park City. The beer is well balance taste with typical golden ale like hops with some sweet malt base. The scent is carries hints of lactose and orange rinds. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall this is a solid brew.
