My favorite Amber. Hoppy, crisp, thick, frothy head, although a slight metallic smell/aftertaste in some batches. A definite go-to at just about any bar in Texas. Really like this beer.

Pours copper with a film of white head. Does leave some lacing. Aroma is faint nuttiness. Taste is some hop bitterness upfront with a hint of caramel. Aftertaste is nutty. Not bad overall.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very light golden-orange pour into glass with tiny head. Aroma is bread-like, if you can smell it at all. Body its medium-light with a citrus bready taste.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Quite a ílightí beer. Not heavy at all on the palate with a good clean slightly bitter finish and aftertaste. Very easy on my drinkability scale; which means most folks can enjoy a few without getting blitzed too quickly. One enjoyable feature was the nutty-caramel aroma and flavor that this brew offered up. Wouldnít be a bad brew to have at the BBQ or fish fry.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle - pours medium gold with a white head. Has an aroma of dry grass and an initial taste of grapefruit. Finishes with a medium thin mouthfeel and light hop bitterness.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Floral hops, malts, and a hint of metal in the nose, and more pronounced malt backbone and floral hops in the mouth. Neither the aroma nor the taste are particularly assertive, but the taste is more pleasant.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Aroma is almost non-existent. Slight bread and malt, but so hard to detect. Pours pretty, with nice fluffy head. But color is a distinct gold...needs to be a hue darker to be a proper "amber".
These imperfections aside, taste is well balanced. A nice tasty malt flavor, with a a subtle fruity twang. Good hop counterbalance.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Poured into a room temp glass and the head is non-existent. Itís like pouring a soda. After pouring in the glass and waiting a minute or two, the color has darkened somewhat after looking like a domestic beer upon pouring.
A wheaty aroma that at first is pleasant. But thin of texture to the palate.
The flavor is overwhelming and with a harsh flavor of hops and yeast, leaving a slight after taste. As I get to the middle and end of the glass, catching the aroma with each drink doesnít seem to help anymore with the taste. I can now smell the aroma 5-6 inches away from the glass as I bring it up for a drink.
Overall, when I looked at the bottle, I was expecting something unusual and great. But after experiencing this Ale, Iím of the opinion that it is just ok. Iíve taken down the last drink and my nose is curled up from the bitterness.
