1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Says amber on the bottle but i guess its a vienna. Either way its crap. Poured this one down the drain. Pours an amber color with a small white head that is gone almost instantly. Smells state and skunky. Tastes like old hops malt and water. Meh.

fort worth wooo!!!! go us!
I’m really proud to have a brewery here in my home town. I pretty much like ever beer these guys make. my favorite is their summer wheat.
This one isn’t bad either, it was obviously dark amber almost brown with a small head. it had a slight bitter taste, a dark/roasted-like flavor and was real smooth.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma didn’t knock my socks off...musty, yeasty, bready notes with some hops hiding in there. Nice deep, garnet color with an off-white head that quickly dissipated. Sweet, caramel/toffee notes with a slightly burnt finish. Body was a bit thin. A somewhat pedestrian amber ale...nothing I would actively seek out.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle via trade with legion242 - Pours pale copper with a short offwhite head. Aromas of light caramel and maybe a touch of grass. Flavor is about the same.. Caramel and light grass.. Maybe a touch of cardboard too. Palate is sweet and this just seems to lack depth.. Not too good..

Draught at Cricket’s Grill, Waco
In December it was available in many pubs around Texas, probably a re-edition of the Yellow Rose Buffalo Butt; more than one bartender confirmed that the beer came from Rahr
Light amber color. It seems to be a reasonable beer (an Ale probably, smooth and with a delicate malt taste), but spoiled by a light medicine aftertaste.

Draught at the brewery
Hazy amber color. Aroma of simple Lager. The flavor is not much better, with just a touch of caramel.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
From the bottle, courtesy of secret santa, pours a clear red with little white head. Smells a little like cranberry juice, and a little bit of malts. Light on the palate with a distict taste of malts, maybe a little cherry, not too complex. Light and refreshing, not the best beer out there but I’d enjoy a few of these on a summer day.
