I had this beer straight from a 12oz bottle and also from a bottle poured into a beer mug.
The beer is a clear amber color with a beige head that eventually goes away but that's cool.
The aroma doesn't justify the smooth caramel malt taste that has just a touch of bitterness on the finish.
It goes down so smooth and easy and is a good session beer at a fair price.

The initial smell made me immediately think back to college and had me worried at first. Taste wise it was no where near as bad as that first sniff made me think it'd be. Reminds me a lot of a few Steam beers that I've had. Its nowhere near the best beer in the world, but its a lot better than drinking anything red white and blue. I could definitely session these. I bought a 6 of it on a business trip to east Texas where I don't actually think craft/micro beer exists (best stuff I've seen is Sam and Goose Island) and figured I'd give a locally brewed Texas beer a try. I'm pleased with it overall and would definitely buy it again.
