The only beer worth drinking in a Coors-light swilling honky tonk. A great beer to introduce as a stepping stone to the whole other world of beers for non real-beer drinkers. Ive corrupted many a good cowboy with this tantalizing back-porch ice-chest treat. Funny how beer snobs shunned this one until brilliant marketing made it thee hip Texas flavor (they doubled the asking price.) Still worth it, though not if they doubled it again. Color is dark rutty red and clear. Aroma hints at adventure. Slightly sweet and caramely. Clean finish.

This is a decent beer brewed here in Texas that can be grouped in the affordable column but has a quality that sets it apart from most other mass-produced american beers...it has a decent taste and is drinkable. give it a try if you can get it.

Not a very good beer. Have had it many times, as I have a number of friends from Texas who swear by it. Most also swear by Coors light. A craft-brew for the not-so-crafty. Not a "real" bock by any measure. Drinkable, but not much more.

Tap. Clear dark brown. Aroma was all malt. Dark fruit, caramel, slightly sweet but while those are normally good it wasnt there in enough quantity to make it rate well. Flavor was malty, light notes of caramel. Liight bodied and clean.

pours a dark redish brown color with little head. Has little aroma but you get a hint of roastiness.. flavor is lacking also. Its about the best macro beer available in my area.. not much else to say..

Much better off tap than in a bottle. This is the beer I look for in a purely domestic macro bar.

Not bad for a macro brew. Theres not much that is particularly noteworthy about it, but then, theres not anything that really brings it down either. Not something that I would classify as a great beer, but its drinkable and enjoyable when nothing else is around.

I love this beer. A good, white foamy head, and a good, strong flavor. This is definetly the best macro brew beer in Texas. When served cold (42), the flavor is richer than when served ice cold (34). An excellent American beer.

I thought everything was supposed to be big in Texas? Definitely not "big" in the malt like a Bock should be. Has a malty aroma and decent head. Is significantly more malty than other commercial American beers, but nowhere near where it needs to be for the style.
