2009 green label beer from drowland, sent this as an extra several years ago, thanks Danny! Pours a nice amber orange with a thin off white head and spotty lacing in the glass, the aroma is actually pretty impressive, a nice malt a backbone with an oaky touch and a little bit of booze, really strong and nice though, the flavor has a lot of caramel and malt sweetness on the front end with a dry like finish, doesnít taste as good as it smells, but itís still pretty nice, tasty stuff. brewballs (215) - USA - JUN 18, 2013
I am from Texas and I have not been wowed by any Texas beers. However, I tried the 2013 and was blown away! This little cutie packs a punch like Annie Oakley! It is a little high on the ABV front and although I have tried beers with as much ABV as this one you really donít taste it. It is sour but not overpowering. It has a clean, crisp taste. Itís not bad but this one donít expect to drink this at a Depeche Mode show. Itís a chillax drink. Try it. In my opinion the best Real Ale has to offer!!!

2013. Mostly clear orange copper pour. Medium corse eggshell head. Good lacing. Very citrusy hop aroma. A slight alcohol burn in the nose and and good amount of caramel and raisin/plum sweetness in aroma. Heavy mouthfeel. Lots of sweetness. Dark fruits again. Caramel and toffee notes. Mild hop bitterness, but citrus flavors still come through well. Pretty neutral finish. Really good an will likely age very well.

2009 vintage. Hazy dark orange/ copper color with a small white head. Aroma is figs and raisins with some fruit cake notes. Flavor is dried fruits, very ripe orange with some alcoholic notes, bittersweet and smokey aftertaste, nice. Medium to full palate, alcoholic and flavorful but not extremely sticky. Nice stuff.

Bottle from Pete and Gail from Austin, TX. Thanks! American pint glass. Pours a cloudy dark orange with a two finger off-white head. Slight lacing. The nose is mild orange, lemon and a slight vinegar smell. Taste is a combination of citrus (orange and lemon), malt and a surprising bitter hoppiness. It is a dry finish with some alcohol taste. jerseyjohn71 (309) - corsicana, Texas, USA - MAR 22, 2013
