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

Waxy amber with a thin white ring head. Aroma is good and strong with hop pininess. Palate is subdued compared to the aroma but very strong flavors of grapefruit peel and english malts come out. A bitchin’ brew. Full but sessionable and totally satisfying with a balabced strong hoppiness and weaker malt backbone. Not iver the top. Just right.

On tap at the pub. Clouded orange pour with a frothy white head. Sweet hop aroma. Citrus notes and spicy hop. Flavor of sweet hops, grapefruit citrus and light grain. Easy bitter finish that feels more fruity than hopped. Almost nutty.

Big thanks to Curtis for sending me this growler! Shared with the other Matt last week. The beer is a copper / orange / amber hue, depending on where the light hits the glass. The liquid is very hazy, with nearly an inch of off white head that exhibits lasting retention. The aroma is a blend of hops and malt, with light citrus. The flavor is well balanced and enjoyable. This is a nice pale ale, and fresh tasting. The body is light, but not thin, per se. The aftertaste leaves a lasting hop bitterness (positive) on the palate. Overall, a nice, light beer. A good choice for warm weather. I would have this again. Serving type: growler Reviewed on: 06-06-2011

Thanks to thirdeye11 for sharing this growler. Pours a clear yellowish brown with a white head. The aroma is malt and light hops. The flavor is more of the light malt with grassy and citrus hops along with some caramel and biscuit malt. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Draft - Light citrus hops and some light malts sweetness. Clear gold with a rich white head. Mellow piney and resin hops with a dank bitterness that fades quick. Nice APA.

Growler thanks to thirdeye11. Pours with a large white head and a hazed golden body. Aroma of light hops and grain. Taste is citrus hops, and toasted grainy notes with a bit of hay. Light bubbles and well attenuated. Drinkable pale ale.
