And the world comes to ruin
There will still be Fergie
And the gum he is chewing.

Can. Dark, clear, red-amber with an off-white head and substantial lacing. Aroma of pine, florals, toffee, and citrus, but somewhat mild. Taste is well balanced; nice bitterness and solid malt backbone. There’s almost a weird cocoa flavor. Medium bodied and a little dry. Good.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2013 Can. Pours a gorgeous deep, rich red-brown with a high ecru head. Nose is intensely herbal and floral -- dry lavender, sage, and rosemary. Hops punch is vibrant all the way through, but never out of balance; the toffee malt adds a perfect counterbalance. Easily one of the best of its style I’ve ever had. Love me some Conroe beer, I do.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep amber rwd color with an off-white foamy head. The identity mystery of this beer solved by Walt. The aroma is nice and bitter but bland at the same time. The flavor is the same, like most reds, but finishes with a nice bitter dryness. Not too much, not too little. A good beer, esp. for the Irish style. Remember, it’s beer we’re talking about here.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 5/20
Aroma of primarily pine with notes of resin and citrus. It has all the hoppy fragrances covered. Pours a reddish amber with a large mostly lasting foamy khaki head and sticky lacing. The taste is bitter. Like the nose, pine, resin, and hints of citrus. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall, a nice offering from Suthern Star which will be enjoyed by many durning our hot Texas summers.
