Touch sweetness towards the end. Not much else going on Body: lighter and lively Parting thoughts: As youíd expect.

Thereís an odd, burnt grain finish. Iíd say itís not a deal breaker, but the lead up isnít great, either.

Scopeyís grand vertical. Thanks to Leighton for this one. Clear gold beer, good pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and semi dry, reasonable fine carbonation. Fluffy malts, some creamy sweetness. Nice floral citrus. Trace of tropical fruits. Light finish leaves a very modest bitter linger. Decent.

Can in Croydonia. Thanks to Leighton. It pours clear pale yellow with a thick white head. The aroma is fresh, sweet, sugared lemons, lychee, sherbet and dull grapefruit. The taste is crisp, bitter, lemony sherbet, soap, grapefruit, floral, white spice, alcohol and white bread with a dry, soapy finish. Light - medium body and fine, foamy carbonation. OK I suppose, but a bit soapy.

Aroma: oddly sweet, reminiscent of rotting vegetables; Appearance: similar to chardonnay with a thin, white head; Taste: apprehensive because I have poured these out before; this time not quite as bad -- but still nasty and sweet; Palate: light bodied with unpleasant finish that hangs around; Overall: Never again.

Tap at Craft Pride in Austin. Clear pale orange with full head that quickly falls away to a solid collar and whisping across the top. Sweet and fruity aroma. Malt is retained nicely in the flavor profile. Very enjoyable - just gets better and better as it warms.

10 oz tulip draft at the brewery tasting room in Dripping Springs, Texas. The pour is an opaque black brown with a small off white head. The aroma is floral earthy hop along with a soft roast. The taste is a nice blend of the floral hops of the nose, along with a roast malt that carries the finish. The subtleness of the roast made this quite drinkable. The palate is light to medium bodied with soft carbonation and a clean soft floral finish. Nice.

Can into a pint glass. Pours a very pale light yellow with a small white head. No detectable aroma or flavor. Awful. As bad as macro adjunct lager. Donít waste your time and money on this flavorless swill.

Had this with a meal the first time I tried this, so maybe the food masked just how awful this stuff is. Not sure how to describe the taste, but it is foul. Drain pour. Initial Rating 10/18/2015 of 2.6: Poured from a 12 oz. can at The Scarlet Rabbit. 2 1/2 finger foamy white head, clear straw color. A bit of fruit in the aroma. Taste has a touch of hops, corn, mildly sweet. Crisp, refreshing.

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.

Listed as 7.5% at Craft pride but Iím not going to argue about the entry. Pours a hazy golden with orange tint. White sticky head is full and sticks around. Aroma is dank and kind of stinky. Its cool on the palate and very bitter but mostly in the aftertaste. High IBU for sure. Im glad Twisted X is branching out into this category.

Austin,Tx - Lamar Foods - 12 oz can. Medium golden pour, quickly diminishing white head. Aroma has some nice peppery hotness, a bit of natural dirt earthiness. Nice pepper burn in the flavor, not overwhelming, some topsoil, Pleasantly crisp mouthfeel, just the right amount of pepper burn.

Orange pour with a white head. The aroma has some nice orange and biscuit malt notes with a bit of sugar. The flavor is a bit different. I get a lot of perfume notes from the hops as well as some orange, sugar, toffee and biscuit malt. Fairly sweet overall. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Clear amber with a frothy off-white head. Weak aroma of biscuit and nuts, with even weaker aromas of resin and grass. Taste is bready/biscuity malts with some mild grassy hops. Light-medium bodied, slick, relatively mildly carbonated.

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.

Had this on tap and boy was it not good. Appearace was like any other decent amber lager. Aroma slightly vegetal. Taste upfront is fairly innocuous but after a second the jalepeno kicks in with a very strong vegetable flavor and a fair amount of heat. Turns out I like jalepenos, just not in my beer. Yuck.

Pours a hazy orange body with some yeast floaters abound. Decent head and lace, aromas and flavors gravitate towards the biscut and nutty malts with the citrus and piney hops coming around in the middle and having a slightly bitter finish. Decent balance but its a bit malt forward, not bad overall, the name and label are both kinda cool.

Draft @ Twisted X. Black in color with a tad bit of head. The aroma is ok, citrus, pine and weak roast. Then we get to the flavor: Oh, dear god this is out of whack!

The flavor doesnít have roast to balance the hops. The pine comes off as a very harsh astringency. The body is thin and water with not enough malt backing to support the hops. Something else is off that canít be explained. If I had brewed this at home it would be finding the drain pipe.

Draft at the source with the glass in my hand. Clear gold color, low carbonation level. Aroma is very faint; weak citrus. Flavor isnít bad because there is not much here. Straw and grain body with a good amount of bitterness. However the bitterness doesnít come from any real hop. Itís just bitterness without the hop punch. Maybe I am soiled from New England imperial IPA. But I donít think so, just lacking. Not undrinkable just real bland.

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 doesnít do it for me. To top it all off this is yet another brew that can only be had in the CAN.

Clear golden brew with small head and bits of something floating around in it. Hope that those are just yeast flecks and not something nasty. Aroma is and flavor is a strong floral hop. Good stuff and at a reasonable price. Too bad it can only be found in the CAN.

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.
