This may just be my favorite Texas amber lager. Plus, how can you beat a herd of longhorns on a beer label? Medium-dark orange/amber in color, this amber is bold, but bright with a very light brown/beige colored head and heavy, steady carbonation. Its aroma is just what you’d expect of an amber: lots of caramel and a great-matched bouquet of hops. Not too sweet, not too bitter, but just enough of both. It’s far from cloying with as much caramel as is in this, with more of a lighter body and a touch of burnt caramel, thankfully overriding that signature lager undertone. It has a full, attractive, sweet and earthy palate that ends very clean for a lager and leaves a faint whisper of fermented, malty sweetness in the mouth. Very nice for an amber lager! I’m disappointed that it gets such low reviews from other driners, though. Cybercat (6145) - Georgia, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Had as Texas Red. Pours a slightly hazy mahogany with a thin eggshell head. Malty aroma has a cloves note and a hint of hops. Flavor features malty, cloves, hay, and subtle caramel notes. Smooth, firm, fizzy mouthfeel rounds out a decent beer. keith0718 (434) - Kansas, USA - JUN 5, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2013 Thin caramel malt character accompanied with a carbonation bite. Goes down easy. Tastes good, but kind of bland--but it’s what one would expect from 141 calories. It really started to grow on me after a couple bottles. sjohnny (674) - - MAY 22, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Sweet malty caramel aroma. Clear light caramel color with off white head. Light bodied. Earthy with hints of caramel and a slightly bitter finish. Beerenberger (1605) - Fischer, Texas, USA - APR 20, 2013
Purchased as TexasRed: Aroma of malts and fruit. Pours a red amber with a none lasting white head and moderate lacing. The taste is malty up front with a hoppy bitter finish. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall, enjoyable. Would make a great Texas summer sipper.

Draught. A pretty lack-luster beer. Not much flavor detected other than roasted malts. boto (2263) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - APR 2, 2013
Draught: This one pours a fairly clear reddish-amber color. There was a bit of an off white head on it. It left a little lacing. The aroma isn’t too bad. Pretty typical malts with some grassy notes, a decent enough lager aroma. The taste is also good, nothing really special, just good and easy to drink. Malts, some bitterness and biscuit notes. Pretty smooth. Easy to drink. tsage (1) - Texas, USA - MAR 30, 2013 does not count
Nice, bright color, pleasant flavor and medium body. Muted finer tones. Good, simple bar beer. roxtersoxter (358) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Pours dark amber/red with small off white head out of bottle. Coffee and herbal aroma with slight coffee taste. Great beer! Drink Texas!
