TCBF. Pours a rather odd but interesting off-pink orange-gold with a thin ring head (a note: despite the description above, the brewery rep said this was colored with hibiscus, not red corn). Nose is clean with a slight fruit element to it -- rather non-descript. Clean on the tongue as well, with a nice light sweetness; it does have some substantiality to it, despite the light body, with bready and yeasty notes. Drinks easy. Finish is clean but a little hollow. Decent beer for Texas heat.

Clear golden with a good fluffy white head. Crackers and yeasty toast fill the nose, a bit blonde and lagery. Good thirst quenching body with lovely carbonation and good depth for a lager. Lovely grassiness plays with a smooth blonde biscuitiness. Pretty much tastes like like a great helles with a robust (but appropriate) hoppiness and gentle fruitiness.

(Draught) clearish gold with a ring of tight white bubbles. Nose of sweet fresh grain, light pepper. Taste of sweet grain mash, lightly spicy, gold grain, easy to drink.

Pint glass at DH- served a murky, yellow color that was mostly transparent, huge 2 finger white head formed and just fucked with me for the rest of the serving (end of the keg, that’s why for the huge head). Aroma of muted hops and... what the hell is that- a grass/fruit hybrid smell. After a brief revisionist history lesson to myself, it’s prickly pear, ha ha ha. Hits the mouth with a light medium body, middle holds up well with more pear coming up, finish is mildly sweet and has this sharp zing after about 5 seconds of completing the swallow. Thanks for the blast from the past guys! I can see downing a growler or 2 or 20 during the heat this summer of this!

Wow, so interesting! Golden in the glass. Very thin white ring of a head. Some watery sugar aroma with a clean, fresh character. Thick, malty sugar cane stalk flavor. Grassy, sinuous and sweet. Go Gringos! Definitely not siesta inducing. For that, make an imperial pale lager
It doesn’t exist yet so you would be the pioneers.

(Draught) Pours a clear pinkish copper body with a small white head. Aroma of prickly pear, grain, and grass. Flavor of grain, prickly pear, citrus, and subtle rose hips.
