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.

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.

IndianaRed (4030) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 9, 2005
Bottle Pours a clear dark brown with a good sized off white head. Fairly sweet, woody malts are the main players in the aroma. Flavor is a simple slightly bitter, woody flavor. Slightly metallic even. Thin watery feel and a carbonated bite that is a bit much. Aftertaste doesnt leave you with much but a slightly bitter trailer.

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.

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.

Have heard the name around a bunch, so decided to give it a twirl last nite. It poured smooth, witha dark brown-red color, no head which makes me think i mayhave had a bad batch.. the taste is thin, and doesnt have much bite.. not many bubbles.. maybe again, bad batch.... i would not buy this again..

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

decent beer that i can get anywhere a little light for me although it looks like it should have some punch..nice color (bottle) will drink over what is commonly on tap around here

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..

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.
