All of my Homebrewing Equipment was in the basement during our latest mini-flood. It is all still safe and intact but is in need of a very thorough cleaning and sanitization process. I simply haven’t had the time to clean it yet.
So, Instead of the usual how-to type post, I though a review of a micro-brew would be fun.
River Horse Brewing Co. located in Lambertville, NJ right on the Banks of the Delaware River is a very small brewery apparently owned and operated by a couple of ex beancounters, Uh I mean Accountants. 🙂
Anyway, Here’s what the Special Ale is all about:
It’s an American Amber that is so dark that it reminds me of an English Brown Ale. The Alcohol by Volume (ABV) is 4.5% so It’s a very refreshing session beer. The flavor is almost all malt with very subtle Hop bittering and aroma. I think they nailed the proper balance with this one and I’d put it right down the middle for Conformity to Style.
I paid $8.99 for the six-pack and I think I’ll grab another for the beer fridge. This is definitely one to have around!
