12oz. bottle poured into a tumber glass.

A- a pale amber/gold, with a nice white head, lacing could be better.

S- best part of the beer. some very light crackery malts paired with a floral hop with light citrus hints.

T- very light. Cracky malts, a very light hint of sweetness with a decent bitterness from the floral/earthy hops. Very slight citrus rind.

M- dryer that you would think. Light bodied, decent carbonation.

O- it's a summer session ale, in every sense.

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.
