Malty fruit nose with a nice balanced flavor of bread and hops.

It is lighter in taste than it appears to be.

Picked up a 6-pack the other day, first time trying this brewery.
Poured in a pint glass,
Look: amber/goldish, very hazy and creamy head, lacing down the glass
Smell: hint of roasty, caramel. piney citrus maybe some spice
Taste: smooth citrus with a hoppy aftertaste but not over the top hoppy,
buffalo chicken wings come to mind when drinking this.
Mouthfeel: medium and smooth
Overall: drinkability is good but at 6.5ABV a few will do, i will definitley try some more from River Horse and would buy this brew again.

Got this as part of a mix-a-six gift from a friend.
Unfiltered, cloudy, amber colored body. Frothy white head leaves plenty of lacing behind.
All down hill from here, bland bitterness overly malty taste.
Leaves behind a dry burnt grass flavor behind.
Overall, not good. Not impressed with this one at all. This may have been old, but this still won't make me want to even attempt to try it again.
Might be a better beer, but for me this ended up being a drain pour.

Simple beer, mildly hoppy, good carbination, not interesting, I'd drink it again if I didn't pay for it.
