Clearly this was the signature ale of this horrid brewpub. Mostly it was water but mixed in with an almost smokey finish.
Draft sampler at Two Rows in Allen, Texas (suburban Dallas) on July 24, 2011. Dark amber color, moderate sweet malty nose, sweet malty sugary flavor with the maltiness fairly sgtrong. Not bad. Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - APR 9, 2011
On tap at the restaurant. Amber pour with a small head. Aroma is kinda grainy, but pretty much not there. Taste is a little caramel, nuts, more nuts, and grain. thirdeye11 (6160) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 13, 2010
(draught) medium amber pour, ring of white bubbles. Nose of honey, sweet grain, and melon. Taste of caramel, melon, light bitterness, with a fruity linger and somewhat creamy medium body. Sammer (1119) - Plano, Texas, USA - MAR 6, 2010

UPDATED: APR 9, 2011 Clear ruby red pour. Taste is light with a tiny amount of red malts. Tastes like a watered down Vienna. Smell is almost nonexistent. Too weak, too watery. 1.7djd07 (14508) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 5, 2009
RE-RATE 4/9/11 Tap at Allen. Clear orange color. Light head. Sweet malty aroma. Light nutty notes. Flavor is nutty, dry malts and sweet notes.
On tap at two rows in rice village. Pours a dark amber with a small off white head thay diminishes quickly. The aroma is a sweet malt with caramel. Thin on the palate and a bit watery with a malt taste. Easy to drink a good amber from two rows. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - MAR 8, 2009

On tap in Addison. I was told this was just there amber, so I am assuming its this one. Not bad. Pours a clear amber with a wisp of off-white head. Aroma of caramel, toast, light hops, and wet dog. Taste is lightly smokey, with caramel dominating and a few timid hops. Light bubbles and watery. SphinxTX (2875) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - AUG 14, 2008
On tap at Two Rows in Allen, TX.
Pours a clear dark amber with off-white head. Aroma has nice caramel malt. Flavor is nice, crystal malts with slight dark malt, slight fruit and nice even bitter. Palate has light-medium mouthfeel, high carbonation. Over all, I enjoyed this beer. Would like again. Easy to drink as well, would make excellent session beer.
