3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Now here’s a beer from flix with some substance. Dark brown with amber tint. A bit hazy. Good signs. The head is a thin dirty ring. The aroma, light danky, wet hop cones. The body is finally full, a feature that has been lacking in flix brews. They must have been catering to the bud light drinkers of round rock but this beer breaks the mold of the smitherings of their other offerings. The flavor is hoppy with a spiced malt backbone. There’s a hint of ginger in the aroma and flavor as well. Most fill and satisfying beer I’ve had at this brewhouse. There’s a bit of anise in the flavor as well, or licorice for those of you unprivileged of schooling.

On tap at Flix. Pours a clear deep red with beige head. Nice, bright aroma of citrus and pine with just a hint of toasted malt. Flavor is much the same. Medium body with high carbonation. Overall, solid brew!

On tap at Flix. Brownish pour with a tan head. Aroma is big fruit, almost raisin, and brown sugar. Taste is a little roast, kinda fruity, lots of smacky bubblegum, and a little more brown sugar.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shaker at the joint- served a solidly 50% turbid with a dark brown and lightened maroon shading, creamy 3 mm head laced nicely all around. Aroma of toffee, caramel, spices, and fruit esters from the yeast. Hits the mouth with a medium body, tasting was just smooth and creamy on the mouth through the whole glass, malt seemed just lightly toasted, finish is full. Not a belgie to style, but damn good though!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A pint at Flix. Pours dark amber with a off white head that dissipates quickly. Minimal lacing. This is a pleasantly bitter beer with grapefruit notes from the hops and an overall undertone of tobacco and sourdough. This beer is lightly medium bodied and easy to put down. Solid.
