COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Premium lager has a subtle hop flavor and a crisp clean finish. Yellow corn from Richardson Farms adds a touch of that Mexican lager flavor. At 5.1% alcohol by volume it is our lightest beer, however, lighter does not equate to lack of flavor. About the name: Twisted X is type of barbed wire. By the 1870s westward expansion of the agricultural frontier across the Great Plains had been halted by the lack of adequate fencing material to protect crops from cattle. Texas substitutes for the stone and wood fences common in the East included ditches, mud fences, and thorny hedges, the most popular being those of Osage orange or bois d’arc. Bois d’arc is native to Texas and Arkansas, and export of its seed was an early enterprise in Texas. Hedges of it were claimed to be "pig tight, horse high, and bull strong." Experiments with varieties of thorn hedges and smooth wire failed to solve the problems of plains ranchers and farmers, however, and so their features were combined into barbed wire fences. On November 24, 1874, Joseph F. Glidden of DeKalb, Illinois, was granted a patent for fencing material consisting of barbs wrapped around a single strand of wire and held in place by twisting that strand around another.

Pours a clear light golden color with white head. Cereal grains on the nose; follows onto the palate. Light bodied. Not much on the finish. Bland at best. Surely not premium.

This is my first brew from this brewery and glad to see the description said it is the lightest beer in their arsenal. Golden brew with a cheap lager corn aroma and taste. Just as well be drinking Frio from HEB for a lot less cost than this. So this one tells me NOT to try anything else this brewery has but since they acknowledge it is their worst beer then I guess I will try others. Better get better or all hope or even respect for this Texas brewery will be lost.

Straight from a can off a sixer. Aroma of slight malt and slight hop and grainy sweetness. Tastes of slight balance of hop and malt, med bodied, and nice lager yeast. Do not really drink lagers but this one is good. Would be good in a michelada.

Fratto (2835) - Arlington, Texas, USA - APR 4, 2015
Bottle from the cooler at Garrison Brothers Distillery. Light pour with a white head. Aroma is grains, grass, and corn. Taste is lots of corn (especially as it warms), more bread, and a flora/earthy thing in the back.

DrunkSanta410 (605) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 4, 2015
Tap at brewery. Yellow pour, white fluffy head. Aroma is grainy, plain. Typical macro lager pour. Taste is Apple juice, hay, bland. I’m sure this is popular, but not my thing. Not much going on.

Cavie (4042) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - JUL 2, 2014
Bottle from Bearded Lady. Pours a very clear straw color with a tall white head. Aroma is dry, grainy and grassy. Flavor is light, easy grain with grass and bread. A hint of bitterness on the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours gold with white head. Smell is light yeast almost a lime smell and bread. Taste is lightly tart malt with a bitter twang like lime rind. Light refreshing and medium carbonation. Has that dos equis with lime kind of flavor. Pretty drinkable. I like it.

Aroma and flavor are typical for the style but nothing outstanding. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, a very drinkable, sessionalble brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

degbert (1369) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a light, off-white head. Nose is caramel, candy orange, grain, and a little metal. On the tongue, it tastes like a more substantial Mexican-style lager; refreshing, decent flavor, easy to drink. Finish is medium and has a little creamed-corn in it. Good lawnmower beer.

Mora2000 (5931) - McKinney, Texas, USA - NOV 10, 2013
On tap at Flix Brewhouse. Golden pour with a white head. The aroma and flavor have a lot of sweet malt notes with some grain character. Very basic and fairly bland.
