2.98/5  rDev -5.1%

12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Bottled November 9th 2013.

A: Pours a clear mahogany brown with an off white head. Average amount of visible carbonation.

S: Initially this one has sort of a macro lager like smell, but as you swirl it a bit of aroma comes out. Carmel and dark fruits blend nicely together, just wish they were more dominant.

T: Reminds me of a american adjunct lager blended with a true German bock. Sure there is the molasses, carmely, raisiny blend we know and love but it is overtaken by a corn

M: Light to medium body with average carbonation. A tad sticky on the backend. Fairly crisp finish.

Overall this beer flows like water in the great state of Texas so its gotta be light and tame enough to be enjoyed by all. Sure beats the BMC lagers.

Appearance - a clear dark brown, with no head at all.

Smell - a nice roasted malt smell.

Taste - like the smell, roasted malts.

Mouthfeel - a bit weak, and a bit over carbonated.

Overall - Its an easy beer to drink, not to much depth to the flavor though.
