look: 3 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Reviewed 11/18/2007 (Tap @ Alamo Drafthouse West Oaks, Houston, TX):

Body color of very light brown. White creamy head, small. Malty sweet aroma, some effervescence, but very weak. Malty sweet taste, fruit like berries. Efferescent. Refreshing. Eh, but I'm intrigued to try some others by this brewery.

Serving type: on-tap

3.54/5  rDev +6.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a clear amber (surprise!) with a very modest head that leaves some splashy lacing behind

Smell: Cereal grains, nuts and butterscotch

Taste: Cereal grains, up front, with the nuts and butterscotch; very malty in the finish, much like the Munich malt flavors found in an Oktoberfest

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: This reminds me of a first generation micro brew; nothing wrong with it but very sweet and malty

Thanks, duff247, for the opportunity

3.29/5  rDev -0.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

12 oz. bottle poured into mug
(11/19/2013 ... drank on 12/23/13)

L: red brown, dark brown; crystal clear ... it's amber with a heavy brown emphasis; weak head, 1/8-inch thick, dies quickly; leaves a nice skin of foam

S: caramel, corn, sour grain, creamed corn

T: nutty, like an English brown ale, loads of malt ... caramel; smoky hop hints like an American brown ale; grain; peach; toasted grain; has lots of taste, at times a weird mix but interesting

F: solid all around

O: not terrible, not fantastic ... the nutty malt taste is intriguing enough to seek it out again.
