3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sounds good on paper but largely fails to follow through. Not bad but I’d take a beer of my Austin youth (Shiner Bock) over this any day.

Can. Pours clear amber with a small, frothy off-white head. Aroma has sweet malts, sugar, cane sugar, light toasted. Medium carbonation, light dry and slightly creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has sharp dry bitterness, toasted, sweet malts. A bit bland.

Originally rated on 9/8/08. Kind surprised here not bad at all. The best thing about this beer was the aroma sweet toasty malts and a little friut mixed in. Mouthfeel was a little light but ok for the style. aroma didnt translate into the flavor as well as hoped but it was pleasant enough, glad i finally tried it

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber brew with decent head and a caramel malt aroma. Taste was just as an amber should be with a semi-sweet caramel flavor balanced out nicely with some hop notes. Got this under the label Oklahoma Suks and being that I am not a football fan only have to assume UT was facing off with OU in some big game or something. At any rate still a good brew.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark amber with a tall light off-white head. Weak aroma of dark caramel malts. Sweet malty flavor with a very mild hops character. Just okay.

330ml bottle at home. Did not enjoy this amber. Quite metallic aftertaste and really sweet.

Bottle. Clear copper color, lots of carbonation, light body, almost a spiced taste. Not my favorite Amber.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Schertz, Tx. - H.E.B grocery store - 12 oz bottle. Dark amber pour, very little head, light off white lacing. Aroma improves as it warms, some nuttiness, some pear-like fruitiness. Flavor, like the aroma improves as it warms. Some pleasant light citrus bitterness, a bit of chewy nuttiness, faint whiff of chocolate. Thick enough mouthfeel. Hits the spot after a long workday.
