This Vienna style lager is from the same vein as Negra Modelo. It has a rich dark color and a deep smooth flavor that combine for a beer with sophisticated character. At 5.4% alcohol by volume this is an easy drinking lager. About the name: Cow Creek is a tributary of Lake Travis (Burnet County). Cow Creek rises eight miles southeast of Burnet in southeast central Burnet County (at 30’40’ N, 98’09’ W) and runs southeast for twenty-one miles to its mouth on Lake Travis, a mile above Lago Vista in Travis County (at 30’29’ N, 98’01’ W). The creek, which is intermittent in its upper reaches, traverses generally flat to rolling terrain with local escarpments and steep slopes and benches. Local soils of shallow clay and sandy loams support juniper, live oak, mesquite, and grasses.

There’s an odd, burnt grain finish. I’d say it’s not a deal breaker, but the lead up isn’t great, either.

Draft at the source. Darker Amber color. Aroma is roasted nuts grain, Munich/ Vienna malts. Body is on the lighter side of medium. Pretty good amount of roasted grain, nuts, toffee caramel flavors. Astringent finish.

Irving, Tx. - Las Colinas Beverage - 12 oz can, Medium copper, slight haze, nice soft off-white head. Sweet aroma, hints of toffee, a touch of Baked Boston Bean candy. Decent flavor, some caramel sweetness, some light date sweetness, a brief hint of chocolate. Mouthfeel is thick enough.

The hit of the pool party -- convenient it was the only beer I bought a full 6-pack of. Caramel malt and grain nicely offset by some hops bite in the finish.

Amber brew with decent head. Smell is not good. Not sure how to describe it but it is not a desirable smell and does make me wonder if this is worth tasting. Taste is only mildly better than the smell. Some toasted malt flavor with a earthy herbal thing that just doesn’t do it for me. To top it all off this is yet another brew that can only be had in the CAN.

Bottle from the post office in Luckenbach. I usually get a Pearl out there, but you know. Dark amber pour with an off-white head. Aroma is roasted and old grain. Taste is old grain, lactose, and weird hops. Weird finish.

Poured a medium to light amber with whispy head. Nice mild malts in the mouth. A very good example of the style.
