Had it on tap in a sports bar. Not the worst beer i’ve had, but not much to make me want to hurry back to try it again. Had a malty flavor with a slightly spicy bite. Did not detect the hops. I enjoyed the dark, rich appearance more than the actual flavor, but it’s still not bad. Was pretty refreshing with the chili I ordred. BeerRules (243) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 13, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2005 Very full mouth feel. Very dark amber color. Flavor is nothing special, but then again I dont find it bad at all. Yet it is boring, however its usually the best thing found on tap in most texas restaurants. aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - MAR 3, 2005
Another reason not to go to Texass horse piss or maybe goat piss not sure and dont care major crap from a worse brewery. MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 3, 2005
light red w/ a big white head, smells stale and not much else, light boring palate tastes of stale grains.. just not good.. tastes like an MGD from a plastic bottle.. well maybe not quite that bad but close. OD40oz (774) - Box Elder, South Dakota, USA - FEB 26, 2005
This crap tasted like Newcastle Brown Ale. It had that heinekenny rot taste to it that i cant stand. I was all pumped up to try this stuff and when I did I felt like slamming my head in a car door. Dark amber, reddish in color with a white head. As mediocre as this beer was it definitely isnt the worst thing to come out of Texas thanks to George W. Bush taking the cake.

Out of a can at a bad hotel happy hour in Austin. Thin pale yellow with little head. Corn based aroma and flavor. Fairly unplesant, I didn’t finish it. SSSteve (4006) - - FEB 22, 2005
dark red in color. unpleasant aroma. i dont notice any roasted flavors or anything dark about this beer at all. lacking flavor. watery. Likerighteous (120) - Pflugerville, Texas, USA - FEB 20, 2005
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. I’ve 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. aenimopiate (176) - The United States of Texas, Texas, USA - FEB 8, 2005
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. hopmaster (7) - redlands, California, USA - FEB 7, 2005 does not count
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.
