3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Deep Ellum First Anniversary Party.
The beer pours a brown color with a white head. The aroma is classic German lager, with some toffee and biscuit malt. The flavor is about what I expected. I get a lot of clean malt notes, as well as a lightest hint of grapes. There caramel and toffee notes are what comes through the strongest, as well as a hint of grass and earth. Medium carbonation and thin mouthfeel.

Pint glass at DH- served a transparent orange with shades of copper in color. White ring around the glass for a head- aroma of autumn leaves, cooler weather, and Texahhtuckys- uh oh! Hits the mouth with a light medium body, malt has only a hint of caramel, weird lacquer/yeast/mint sensation in the middle, finish was written in the notebook as "Texughtucky Meh and FUCKING ’EH!". Texughtucky Meh, works for me.
