On draft. Pours a clear brown with a small head. Aroma is malty. Taste is of caramel malt with some light nuttiness and roastiness. Moderately sweet, very slightly bitter. Mouthfeel is weak and watery, needs more body and work.

a clean crisp beer, not exactly full flavored, but suits the hot south texas summers. Good, solid, everyday drinking beer for this region of Texas.

Draught at Flying Saucer Draught Emporium, Houston, Texas.
Amber colored body, fine off-white head. Weak aroma. Little sweetness of brown sugar and some rye tones. Also rye and malt in the flavor. Thin and watery and very uninteresting. A bock, hmmmm.....

bb (8270) - Alamo, California, USA - AUG 17, 2004
Bottle. Dark amber color with a huge off-white head. Light aroma of malt and a hint of earthy spiciness. Slight sulpher finish but otherwise an easy drinking beer. Hint of roastiness.

pours a rich burnt copper. not much head. no lace. Aroma is mostly malty, caramel and yeast. Body is thin, flavor is one dimensional. Caramel. maybe some corn. metalic aftertaste.

SDalkoholic (2318) - Linda Vista, California, USA - AUG 13, 2004
Warm brown colored beer that has a bit of a flat taste to it. Also only in the soapy head i can taste either a dab nutmeg, cinnamon or some kind of spice.

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2007 June 25, 2006 Re-Rate <P> Aroma is grains and gasses and scant else. Body is a dark amber and holds a diminishing pinky thin tan head. Very light palate. Some mild corn/grain/bread notes and just a hint of corn starch-like sweetness. Feels crisp in the mouth due to ample carbonation. Better than I recall, but this is still a very plain jane brew, but it is at least pleasantly plain. <P> Original rating 1.1 <P> I may have got this confused with something else, but I thought I’d read good things about it. The Bartender, Susie, knew her beer and warned me against it, but I thought she was just being snobbish cause it was American. I should have listened. I think this is the placebo they give the folks in those controlled medical studies cause it’s nothing but sugar water. Awful....thanks for not charging me for it, Susie.
