I'm from Texas and i absolutely love this beer! I like dark beers anyway but this has been a personal favorite for decades. I'm in California now and it just showed up in my local store and i'm drinking one now...excellent! just as i remember...

Balanced the way I like with just enough Hops to give it character but no bitterness and a sweet caramel malt flavor, somewhat light for a dark beer(imho)!! It reminds me of Irish Reds i like a lot for the same reasons.

I came to the site to check its ABV and was somewhat shocked to see 4.40% as it doesn't "feel" like that to me!

It goes well with food(esp beef jerky!) or by itself, a great beer for a hot Texas summer day...
