2.38/5 rDev -27.4%
pours a clear golden color with a fluffy white heading that settles to a thin lacing that sticks around for about 3/4 of the tasting.
Smell is very sweet with a buttery honey type aroma.
Taste is sweet and bitter,with a funky yeasty aftertaste.
Mouth just went completley wrong for me it was overcarbonated extremely light bodied almost like a drinking carbonated water. Also it left a film covering in my mouth for dissatisfying.
Drinkability besides being light and a low ABV I really couldn't stomach to have another one of these.

12 oz bottle. Pours hazy-golden with a long lasting, small white head. Aroma is of citrus fruit, some apples and cookies. Body is medium and crisp. Flavors are of biscuit malt, citrus fruit and hints of musty yeast. Finish is very short. On the whole it is tasty, refreshing lawn mower brew.

Bright bright yellow. Not straw or gold, this can only be described as yellow. Fluffy white head. Some haziness in classic riverhorse style. Slightly sweet biscuit and straw malts on the nose. Mild hop character.
Decently sized creamy mouthfeel up front. Bread crusts with a touch of butter, slightly toasty. Carbonation rolls in around mid pallete. Slightly earthy hops present on the end just to round everything out making for a clean sip. Not as crisp as id like this beer to be but it does add a unique twist to things. Nothing crazy but decent for a standard american blonde ale. Flavors are good. Could very well go great with summer evenings by the case.

12 oz capped sample bottle
A- Into a pint glass the 2008 River Horse Summer Blonde pours a a very transparent yellow/orange/brown. The color and visible carbonation reminds me of ginger ale. A big fat 2 finger white net of a head tops this one off.
S- Smells like a weak pale ale. Definitely a recognizable malt character, hops are more present, some lemon and grass as well.
T- Very lager-like, a little bit nutty, malt dominates the taste, a little blast of citrus and some subtle bitterness on the finish.
M- There is nothing to this one. Very light body, the carbonation makes this one a gulper.
D- Session beer? I like Power Hour better. This is an extremely drinkable summer offering from River Horse.

Mostly clear gold blond color, just a thin white rim of foam. Nose is the only interesting part of this otherwise boring brew. Sweet, creamy wheat, mixed in with some vanilla. Taste is very sweet. Some light wheat taste, too. Real shallow feel, nothing. Light, off mineral aftertaste.
