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.

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.

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 (5664) - 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.

Pours gold .. awesome foam .. light grain and hay .. refreshing and quite well made .. . .
"You probably won’t see any redbacks out there," Sonja reassured us. "Snakes are much more of a problem."

This intelligence was received with four raised eyebrows and expressions that said, "Go on."

She nodded. "Common brown, western taipan, western puff pastry, yellow-backed lockjaw, eastern groin groper, dodge viper..." I don’t remember what she said exactly, but it was a long list. "But don’t worry," she continued. "Most snakes don’t want to hurt you. If you’re out in the bush and a snake comes along, just stop dead and let it slide over your shoes."

This, I decided, was the least-likely-to-be-followed advice I have ever been given.

Pours an average yellow with a nose of soapy hops. Flavor is a soapy MESS. Watery mouthfeel. Blah.

(draught at homefield grill) clear rich gold, thick foamy white head with nice lacing. Nose of fresh cracked grain and a little bit of apple. Clean. Taste Of light granny smith apple, bit of earthy hop bite, and dirt. Finish is pretty dirty and earthy to be honest. It was better ice cold.

10 oz. draught glass @Homefield for their voting thingy- served a transparent dulled straw color, lively medium carbonation, wafer thin white head tried it’s best to lace. Aroma of malt- and that’s about it. Hits the mouth with a firm but small body, malt is there, middle holds up well, finish has a clean and crisp finish. Dos Suckeys? Nyet.
