3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Flying Saucer-Addison TX. Poured in a pils glass at happy hour. Light brown with very little head. Pleasant malt aroma with no hint of hops. Tastes of light malts, some residual hops, and somewhat bitter. The taste fades on the end and is a bit sticky. Not one of LO’s better products but very drinkable as a session beer.

This was a pleasant brew, without anything extreme but fresh and well made. A good alternative to macros at most establishments I found myself at in Austin.

Had this at the Live Oak 2010 Anniversary party (be cause I’ve never officially reviewed it before). Wow, has my palate matured since I had this last. Very soapy character, sweet, amber mediocrity. Nothing much else to say from memory.

To me this is their "middle of the road" brew. But at least they know how to drive in style. It is a tad too non- offensive, but I think that is te idea - to get a beer out there that will grab the crowd that doesn’t go for an IPA. Nicely balanced with plenty of flavor and balance.

Pleasant and floral smell, crisp taste. Seemed a bit hoppy for a lager. Interesting but not special.

Enjoyed while in the Dallas area on business. Appearance slightly cloudy amber with a thin head. Aroma of malt and lager yeast.
Taste a little creamy, basic amber lager easy to drink.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pint glass at Opal Devine’s- very little head, aroma of malt, perfect amber color in appearance. Hits the mouth with a medium body, a note of sweetness to start, hops on the middle and finish, which is mildly bitter and frank. A beer that made me crave a smoke while I drank it, which is very hard to do! Bottle and sell it damn it!

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft at the Gingerman Plano. This beer pours a medium amber with a thin off white head. The aromas are bread, musk and a hint of citrus. The mouthfeel is slightly sticky with a light bitterness and medium body. An average beer at best.
