3.25/5 rDev +4.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
Appearance: Dark brown, no haze at all. Very thin head that leaves very little in the way of lacing. Very interesting looking, and comes in a pretty badass bottle.
Smell: Very light aroma, a little malty and no real detectable traces of hops. Very light smell for such a dark beer.
Taste: Also very light, slight maltiness is detectable and maybe some hops, very hard to tell what is in this beer. It is a very blended flavor, but flavor none the less. Nothing obtuse about this beer, it is very friendly, and the flavor is nice.
Mouthfeel: Good carbonation, does not bring anything out in the flavor though, if anything it just masques the flavor even more, which is why I like to take it of the cooler, open it, and let it sit out for a while when I am at parties.
Overall: There is nothing great about this beer, but there is nothing bad either, its pretty good. It is the beer that Texas kids drink when they want to act like they are having a less mainstream style beer without actually having to put up with anything to strong. Hey, thats their choice, and I would be lying if I wasn't thankful that people bring beers like this instead of just bud light to parties.

Pours a clear, golden brown with a fizzy, short lived off white head.
Lightly grassy floral notes muddled with a bready, caramel malt backing.
Medium body, fizzy carbonation.
A decent beer, nothing particularly exciting, but easy drinking, and pleasant.

On-tap at $4 a pint.
Appearance: Brown. Plenty of clarity. Not much head, and virtually zero lacing. Looks alright, I guess.
Smell: Malty. Slightly roasty. No hop aroma, really. Just has a cheap sort of smell, but it's not off-putting or anything like that. Again, alright.
Taste/feel: For a third time, it's okay. It has a thin feel with a moderate prickly carbonation. Caramel malts and the like with a slight roastiness as well. Sweet, not bitter at all... mediocre, and pretty uninteresting.
Short review for a beer that doesn't require a long one. It's a beer that... just... it is what it is. Affordable, decent, nothing-at-all-special beer. Sweet, quite thin, a good amount of carbonation, not very interest piquing. Probably wouldn't buy it again.
Serving type: on-tap
