Another good one from Texas. Some sweetness and a hint of alcohol, but an easy one to drink - I had two.

Just had a sample of this. Poured red and smelled and tasted hoppy and malty with a nice balance and typical house flavors. Pretty taste stuff with no booze showing up. Wouldn’t mind trying this again.

On tap at Workhorse. Pours a clear amber with small frothy white head leaving spotty lscing. The aroma is a fruity malt and caramel. Medium mouthfeel with a sweet fruity malt and honey with light hopiness. A good American strong ale from ABW.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap. Pours with clear bronze body with a small tan head. Decent lace. Aromas are fruity, tons of caramel, raisins, medium esters. Pine and grassy hop notes. Flavors are fruity, very estery, dark fruit (special B?), caramel, crystal malt laden. Bitter without a huge hop flavor. Lively carbonation, but a bit sticky.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma has a fruity hoppy thing going. Pours a clear orange amber with a none lasting off white head and minimal lacing. The taste has a slightly sweet quality with citrus hops being the predominate flavor. Medium-light body with medium carbonation. Overall, an interesting take on a red. A little happier than I normally like.
