This Premium lager has a subtle hop flavor and a crisp clean finish. Yellow corn from Richardson Farms adds a touch of that Mexican lager flavor. At 5.1% alcohol by volume it is our lightest beer, however, lighter does not equate to lack of flavor. About the name: Twisted X is type of barbed wire. By the 1870s westward expansion of the agricultural frontier across the Great Plains had been halted by the lack of adequate fencing material to protect crops from cattle. Texas substitutes for the stone and wood fences common in the East included ditches, mud fences, and thorny hedges, the most popular being those of Osage orange or bois darc. Bois darc is native to Texas and Arkansas, and export of its seed was an early enterprise in Texas. Hedges of it were claimed to be "pig tight, horse high, and bull strong." Experiments with varieties of thorn hedges and smooth wire failed to solve the problems of plains ranchers and farmers, however, and so their features were combined into barbed wire fences. On November 24, 1874, Joseph F. Glidden of DeKalb, Illinois, was granted a patent for fencing material consisting of barbs wrapped around a single strand of wire and held in place by twisting that strand around another.

Mild malt and citrus aroma. Crystal clear slightly effervescent pale yellow. Thin fizzy bright white head that fizzles away to nothing. Light bodied. Malty. Citrus sweet with a slight bitter finish. Super easy drinking.

Aroma: oddly sweet, reminiscent of rotting vegetables; Appearance: similar to chardonnay with a thin, white head; Taste: apprehensive because I have poured these out before; this time not quite as bad -- but still nasty and sweet; Palate: light bodied with unpleasant finish that hangs around; Overall: Never again.

Sour and funky. Thin and metallic. Fake citrus notes. Would be improved with a lime but probably not much. Very disappointed in this beer.

Beachmaster (522) - Oklahoma, USA - OCT 31, 2015
Can into a pint glass. Pours a very pale light yellow with a small white head. No detectable aroma or flavor. Awful. As bad as macro adjunct lager. Dont waste your time and money on this flavorless swill.

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2016 Had this with a meal the first time I tried this, so maybe the food masked just how awful this stuff is. Not sure how to describe the taste, but it is foul. Drain pour. Initial Rating 10/18/2015 of 2.6: Poured from a 12 oz. can at The Scarlet Rabbit. 2 1/2 finger foamy white head, clear straw color. A bit of fruit in the aroma. Taste has a touch of hops, corn, mildly sweet. Crisp, refreshing.

TXBadger (2788) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 26, 2015
Pours a clear light golden color with white head. Cereal grains on the nose; follows onto the palate. Light bodied. Not much on the finish. Bland at best. Surely not premium.

This is my first brew from this brewery and glad to see the description said it is the lightest beer in their arsenal. Golden brew with a cheap lager corn aroma and taste. Just as well be drinking Frio from HEB for a lot less cost than this. So this one tells me NOT to try anything else this brewery has but since they acknowledge it is their worst beer then I guess I will try others. Better get better or all hope or even respect for this Texas brewery will be lost.

Straight from a can off a sixer. Aroma of slight malt and slight hop and grainy sweetness. Tastes of slight balance of hop and malt, med bodied, and nice lager yeast. Do not really drink lagers but this one is good. Would be good in a michelada.

Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - APR 4, 2015
Bottle from the cooler at Garrison Brothers Distillery. Light pour with a white head. Aroma is grains, grass, and corn. Taste is lots of corn (especially as it warms), more bread, and a flora/earthy thing in the back.

DrunkSanta410 (907) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 4, 2015
Tap at brewery. Yellow pour, white fluffy head. Aroma is grainy, plain. Typical macro lager pour. Taste is Apple juice, hay, bland. Im sure this is popular, but not my thing. Not much going on.
