Hey, Lance Armstrong lives by this beer! Good enough for him, good enough for me. Well, it’s nothing fancy. Sweet, dark, somewhat flat in flavor. Nothing special but it does the job and it goes down well. It goes in my stand-by catagory. Possibly a bit too expensive for a decent Texas beer. Good beer for a BBQ and a nice steak.

Medium amber color with a minimal off-white head. Nose is bright and fruity. First sip is also bright and fruity. Not as sweet as most bocks. Peach aroma. A little on the watery side. Somewhat yeasty. Bitter finish.

ttroha (408) - Americus, Georgia, USA - APR 5, 2015
Bottle at Fox Bros BBQ. Pours dark amber with white head. Aroma of malts and slightly hoppy. Tastes of water, corn and malts. Plain american beer. Nothing special.

jcr (2278) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - APR 3, 2015
Bottle and draft. Deep amber body with an off-white head, mostly diminishing. Aroma of raw grain, lightly toasted bread, caramel. The flavor is lightly to moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Grainy, light. OK in a pinch.

Pours dark amber from bottle, little head. Slight malty aroma. Tastes clean, carbonated, watery with distant malt flavors reminiscent of real beer. Hops are indistinct. Gassy on the palate with medium body courtesy of the adjuncts. Overall its a dark American resuscitation lager, hopefully the last one I’ll have.

Old rating. Amber colored. Minimal caramel, malt, and hop flavors. Fairly thin...still better than most macros.

At Houston airport. From the bottle. I've had before many times. Slight malty caramel notes with slight hop notes. Medium light body. Smooth flavor throughout. Easy to drink. Just enough flavors in this beer to make it moderately satisfying. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
