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.

Almost clear light amber color with a medium off-white head. Malty with toffee notes a light citrusy hop. Semi-sweet. Dull light malty flavor. Some earthy notes. Thin and watery finish.

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..

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

12 oz bottle. Clear pink orange with a brief white head. Corn flakes and red grapes. Light carb with decent body for a lager (?). Bread, green apple. Dries a little.

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.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
smells like beer, clear light amber color w/thin cream colored head, lightly sweet, well-balanced hoppiness, just not very intense. palate-moderate carbonation w/ quick finish.
got it at the brewery, 4 free pints with the purchases of a $5 pint glass, every saturday 1-3pm.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Body is amber, not much of a head. Aroma is oatmeal, grits, caramel, and that’s about it. Taste has a bit of a wheat character to it which is suprising, along with a light hop background, very light caramel, and a bit of honey. Not very good, pretty bland.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
ugh. This one pours a very light clear amber color with a thin white head. Horribly boring aroma with the faintest hint of caramel. This beer is almost beyond flavorless. I have now finished my mixed six-pack of Texas beers and I’m glad to never drink them again.

Thanks go to Walt for this. Had it after a ling run and must say that it was refreshing.. Nothing really stands out
flavor wise but it had a mild caramel maltiness with a little grain flavor.
