Real Ale Brewing Company Rio Blanco Pale Ale

Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.

In keeping with the “beer I drank while in San Antonio, TX” theme here’s the final review from the Lonestar State.

Tonight’s featured beer is Real Ale Brewing Company Rio Blanco Pale Ale.

From the Real Ale Brewing Company website:” Deep golden and malty, with a spicy hop flavor and well balanced hop bitterness, Rio Blanco is a uniquely Texan interpretation of an English-style pale ale. Czech Saaz hops provide a crisp finish and delicate aroma.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a dark golden color with a large fluffy white head and some lacing left behind.
Aroma: Sweet malts dominate with citrus and pine scents in the back.
Taste: Nice upfront malt flavors similar to an English Pale with pine, floral and citrus hops to balance this beer out nicely.
Overall: So good! Real Ale Brewing Company’s Rio Blanco Pale Ale is an easy to drink and very well made beer and at 5.3% ABV I could drink this one all evening long. After having three of their offerings I would give them a HUGE thumbs up.  I hope their beers make their way over to California.  I'm a fan.
