Pours amber with no head. Sweet malt aroma with caramel and ginger? Initial taste is sweet malt fading to spices. Still can’t tell if it is ginger? Dry finish with a little bitterness to it. PorterPounder (7970) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 18, 2004
Poured from the bottle at Waterloo Icehouse in Austin, Tx. Pours a murky medium orange with little to no head. Aroma has some malty notes with soime caramel notes. Flavor is sweet and malty with a bit oif a citrusy hoppy backdrop. Mouthfeel is clean and even. A most drinkable amber ale. Dogbrick (13010) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 14, 2004
Thanks to bu11zeye for the trade. This is a pretty good Amber Ale. Pours a dark honey color with a thin off-white head and minimal lacing. The aroma is fairly malty, with a little bread and caramel. Light and sweet mouthfeel, with earthy malt, and hops flavors. The finish is zesty and lightly bitter. Not a bad job on this one. jhollera (1) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 10, 2004 does not count
My first beer rating ! Nice color . I love hoppy beer and this does not dissapoint. Tastes like many California ales. Good job Houston. We dont have a problem with this bee ! IndianaRed (4619) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 25, 2004
Bottle Pours a clear medium amber with a nice fluffy white head that maintains quite well. Lacing is hefty and chunky. Toasted grain and bready notes on the nose and a slight hop slant. Flavors are sweet and bready with little hops and a soft wheat bread aftertaste. Very plain and simple but not unpleasant. Soft carbonation.
Not bad. Thanks again to Kaggie97 for this texas brewskie

Pours a clear and rusty orange with a white fluffy head. Aroma is grassy hops and caramel malt and fruit similar to peaches. The flavor is of grassy hops , sweet carmel which carries to the end with no dryness. Medium bodied beer. Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 14, 2004
Appearance: rustic amber hue, with a succint, perfunctory head.
Aroma: sweetness itself, rich, malty, with precious, but lovable, fruitiness, hints of cherries, peach, melon.
Taste: light, happy hoppiness at first, then that rich maltiness continues through the flavor. Body is light to medium, medium-length finish, accompanied by continuing, delightful flavor.
Not a bad amber you’ve got there, Houston.

Slight hoppy/sweet scent with a medium head. Has a clear orange/amber color. Has a initial malty flavor with a hop influenced bitter finish. This is a straight forward amber ale with a full flavor, a little on bitter side, but a good hoppy bitter.
