COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named for the fairer-furred flying mammal who’d rather avoid a sunburned bum. Other parts of the country may lay claim on having great beer culture, but we ain’t too shabby down here in San Antonio… unfortunately we’re a lot closer to the surface of the sun, so bust out the SPF 100 to protect your tail from the South Texas rays. This quaffable thirst quencher combines a simple recipe of malts with a relatively reserved portion of American hops to create refined refreshment, perfect for escaping the heat on a patio with a view near you. And please, someone crank up the air conditioning. Ingredients: Pale, carapils, Munich & crystal malts; restrainedly aggressive American hops; top-fermenting yeast; natural, limestone-filtered, Edwards Aquifer H2O; Plenty of Shade

Moderately orange translucent pale with an off-white frothy head and sparse carbonation. Lightly sweet aroma. Balanced malt-hop flavor. Better than I expected. Easy drinking but still with a strong hop resence for a pale. Rocking lacing!
