COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A special blend of malted barley - lightly to darkly roasted - creates layers of toasty sweetness, balanced by the citrusy notes of Cascade hops. Burnt orange with a laid back finish, this is the beer of Austin.

Aroma is sweet, roasty, malty, and a hint of fruitiness. Pours a dark clear amber with none lasting white head and on lacing. The taste has a burnt nuttiness quality combined with maltiness. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall, surprisingly, I liked this beer. It could have something to do with the beer prior to this one. Will sample again.

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

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.

ZacM612 (476) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - NOV 12, 2015
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.

Bottle. Clear copper color, lots of carbonation, light body, almost a spiced taste. Not my favorite Amber. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PorterPounder (6892) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 29, 2015
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.
