This summer ale pours a bit cloudy with a thin white head. An evident nose of sweet malt was appealing but the brew itself was somewhat thin and mostly sweet, ie, it lacked balance. The body was there, due to the sweetness I presume, but overall would not have me coming back for more. Overall a fair summer ale, which might fit the taste of your average "lite" drinker, but I'll stay away.

A very good summer Beer, lite and refreshing. Will not fill you up or weigh you down. My first choice in the summer months. If you see it grab a six and enjoy.

will not go over the flavors as it seems to have been done by other already. Good luck finding it at least in hunterdon county are in NJ seems to be on and off with availability in the summer months, sells out quick.

Summer Blonde pours a slightly cloudy gold with a shade of orange. A large off-white head holds with good retention and good lacing.

The nose is a grainy malt up front, followed by a sweet, inviting touch of fruit, and maybe just a hint of yeast.

The taste follows the aroma in the best way possible. Again, there's a decent taste of sweet malts, and this is complimented with some lemon and orange notes. The taste is crisp and clean, with a slightly sweet finish. Medium carbonation and the light body combine to make that crispness, which is perfect for these hot summer days.

If you're looking for a light, summer beer to enjoy this weekend, River Horse Summer Blonde is it. At 4.5% ABV, it's light and quenching but doesn't sacrifice any taste, making it a must-have this summer.
