3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly hazy golden out of the bottle with a foamy white head and a slightly soured grain nose. Flavor has a citrusy tange to it over a nice malty sweetness. Hops linger in the back of the throat while a yeasty dough is further up. I bet it is good with a sandwich. Thanks to 123456green for the bottle.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Suitably grassy, spicy, hop aroma, some faint grainy malt notes and citrus. Golden amber color, hazy and lightly sedimented, average head. Flavor is also full of juicy hop, again spicy and citric, dashes of pepper, and a very slight maltiness late. Finishes dry and bitter. Light-medium bodied, vigorous carbonation on the palate. Easy-drinking. Could perhaps use a bit more balance, but fine for what it is. Thanks, Louis!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2004 Bottle pours a dull hazy golden, medium fizzly off-white head, plenty o carbonation, yeasty bits abound, with decent lacing. Light hops and citrus on the nose. Forwardly malty/grainy with a bit of a hop bite. Somewhat grassy, maybe a bit of overripe fruit. Slight astringent taste on the finish. Decent body and mouthfeel. Not the best, but not bad. Thanks goes out to 123456green for the trade!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Subtle hopping with lots of drinkability. Faint aroma, cloudy goldenrod body with a thin head. Nothing too special here but it is good for a beer from central Texas.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Brown bomber with a simplistic label depicting the Blanco River. The color of the beer is hazy golden orange with a fizzy carbonation at first. The head is about an inch thick and short lived. The aroma is very faintly hoppy with pine resin. The taste has butterscotch like malt, and pine/grapefruit hops. The beer is light to medium thick on the palette, with a dry aftertaste. A decent beer, but feels a bit indecisive as to where it wants to go. Thanks to 123456green for this bottle amopng his samples of Texas beer.

UPDATED: JUN 10, 2004 Very pale and very good. Pours light golden brown with med head that fades somewhat fast. Got a very strong bite yet not too bad. Good offering fron Texas. Finish is calm. However gets rather sweet at the end which makes 2 beers plenty.

Light clean nose with some cracked grain aromas, pale orange color, low head. Toasted malt and a little caramel flavor. Light berry tastes. Bitter-ish end. Smooth and clean palate and a good balance, for sure, but overall nothing special. Decent.
