3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale golden with an amber tint. Good white head. Starts sweet like a DIPA. Aroma is a milder pine. Flavor is smooth and full of pine backed citrus malt. Its much better around 55 deg F than ice cold.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Amber brew that is not very aromatic. Slight smell of toasted malt and freshly dug dirt. Taste is about like bread with some herbs added. To be honest I was expecting this to be OK at best so I am glad to have found a single for sale. Not a huge fan of Rahr and Sons brews and this one supports my stand on that.
So much for the "Pride of Texas" they so boldly put on the can. Need to take that off before someone thinks this is the best Texas can do. There are some REALLY GOOD brews in Texas. This ain’t one of them.

Pours a dark golden color with white head. Grain on the nose, a little light hop pine but not much else on the nose; same for the palate. I was disappointed by this one.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours orange, mostly clear with light creamy head. Smell is mostly grains, biscuits but pleasant and lightly fruity. Taste is a bit crisper than the smell would indicate. Light to moderate bitterness up front followed by a sweeter grainy finish. Actually not bad for a pale ale especially considering I don’t think I’ve ever had a Rahr & Sons beer I really liked. Pretty drinkable with balancing bitterness and some pleasant maltiness. Full feeling body with prickly carbonation. Nice mouthfeel. Started getting a lightly twangy hit of alcohol I think near the end of the beer. Still decent

Can from Blaze’s. Light pour with a white head. Aroma is pine, lots of grass, and a little bread. Taste is pretty herbal, grassy, light toast, and a tiny bit of fruit. Awkward finish.
