Nice brown color with a big head that lasts a while. Has that live oak malt flavor with a light spicy note in the background. Easy drinking and dry. Probably not to the style but feels like it could use a little sweetness in the middle to round things out. Feels slightly watery. I don’t believe I love this style it’s a little confused. But the beer is really clean and crisp. GreatDane1632 (1169) - North Dakota, USA - JUL 11, 2015
Rated based on notes taken 11 Aug 2012 -- On tap at the Esquire Tavern in San An. Decent, could have a little more crisp spiciness. mmmbeer (1419) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 6, 2015
Rating #1300. Served in a shaker from The Growler Room fill- poured a mildly turbid brown with a shade of mahogany, 3 finger sun-faded tan head became 2mm tall with wild lacing about the vessel after a smoke and relieving the dog. Aroma of rye, wheat, and biscuits. Hits the mouth with a light body, malt especially helped to have the rye added to give it a unique body, malt has a breakfast cereal taste to it, finish is drying with a kiss of hops. Goes down WAY too easy- this beer could be dangerous! TXBadger (2811) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 5, 2014
Pours a clear darker amber color with off-white head. Caramel, malt, rye, and light fruits on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with more malt. Aurelius (5332) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 26, 2013
Lightly sweet, toasted cereal aroma. Clear, marzen colored beer; clingy, ivory head. Breakfast cereal flavor up front, tannic afterwards. Toasty, dry, biscuity. Medium body, pithy mouthfeel. Slightly tangy finish without any fruit or real bitterness. I’ve become gunshy of ryes, but this was very marzen-like and drinkable. On tap, Hay Merchant, Houston.

Very faint aroma, slight brown sugar smell. Inoffensive, light bodied , not too bland, not too bitter. trevor211 (1681) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 29, 2013
Amber pour. Overripe fruit and caramel malt dominate this one. It’s light on the flavor, though. Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUL 28, 2013
On tap at Brewed. Lighter brown pour with a small white head. Aroma is light, spicy, and a little citrus. Taste is very bready, crisp, and a little orange finish. jkwalking05 (4735) - Arlington, Texas, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Cloudy brown with a decent beige head. Aroma is of malt, caramel and eye. Taste is of rye, caramel, bread, and malt. travita (5003) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 9, 2012
On tap at the Phoenix Saloon. The look is hazy, thin off white head, and reddish amber in color. The smell is straw, hay, rye, and grassy. The taste is better, rye, malts, and straw.
