COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lobo is the native wold of Texas and the Southwest. It was almost wiped out by big ranchers about 100 years ago, like small craft breweries were almost wiped out by Prohibition. Both are coming back! Lobo is from a recipe that dates to 1910. It is made with the four classic ingredients: barley, American hops, yeast, and pure Texas Hill Country water. It is a celebration of beer the way it was made 100 years ago.

had higher hopes after really liking the lobo negro; this was just generic beer; maybe a little straw/grass in aroma; much carbonation in taste and just there. nothing bad tasting but nothing positive either.

Sampled at the Texas Craft Brew fest, my score is based off of some incoherent notes and a 2 oz sample.

It has a nice, green lager aroma and a flavor that’s really not bad for the style. Its bitterness is respectable and rounds off a well-flavored, grainy beer with a nice weight very well. Yeast characteristics are minimal, and overall it’s a really clean beer that gets extra points in my book for a body that’s full, but not heavy or creamy as some lagers can get. It really almost seems like a pale ale at times. I don’t normally grab a lager intentionally, but if I did this would be a possible subject. It’s hoppy (for a lager) and lively enough to wake me up on a sleepy, overcast day.

Bottle:   Yellowish straw, fairly clear, moderate frothy white head, spotty lacing.   Grassy nose, sweet mealiness, some straw and hay as well.   Similar on the tongue, clean, grassy, fairly sweet.   Doesn’t come across as corny or overly mealy, which I like.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Clean finish, just sweet grassy notes with some straw and hay on the exit.   Average, but solid for a Pale Lager.   Thanks Bill!

Pale yellow , no head. Grain on the nose, maybe some corn. Non descript and slightly sweet. Very light in the body. Somewhat refreshing but unimpressive overall. A guy at Specs said it was "kinda like a saison, spicy you know" Not why I tried it (gotta go local), but he was way wrong.
