Hand-bottle (pressurized) The Grolsch bottles top popped off with a BANG! just like a pistol went off. Im thinking this is gonna taste pretty darned fresh. Clear, brilliant amber lager with a mid-sized, fluffy, white head. Excellent retention. The aroma is restrained until warmed, and then caramel and rich, toasted malts come forth in a big way. Medium-bodied with tickling carbonation. The flavor is well-balanced and refreshing, but not without its lager version of rich caramel and toasted malt decadence that carries over into a lightly bitter, toasted grain finish. Ive tried several true Franconia lagers, a couple of them Marzens, and this is true to style. Not flashy, but very classy. Im looking forward to sharing the other two bottles with the Orlando crew. Thanks to ericandersnavy for the hand-bottle!

On tap from Gingerman Fort Worth and the brewery. Much better than I was expecting for a small brewery in McKinney.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - SEP 13, 2009
Tap at brewery.
Pours an average yellow with a small, quickly fading head. Aroma is faint corn, mash, and grain. Flavor features faint floral notes and corn mash. Average mouthfeel. Just better than a typical lager.

On tap at the Bluebonnet brewoff. The look is clear, golden in color, and has an off white head. The taste is malts, caramel, grains, and corn. Ok for a lager.

Not bad for being from such a small brewery. I think they are on the right path. A decent lager.

On tap (finally). Pours with a small, fluffy, off-white head that flattens over a orange tinged yellow clear body. Aroma is grassy hops, toast and diacetyl. Taste is sweet and watery, but clean. Slight bready with no real hops or bitterness. In no way offensive, but not interesting. Well crafted though. Light bodied, dry and crisp with a slight lingering sweetness. Light tingling carbonation (which I prefer to the fizzy beers of the style).
