Pretty disappointed when I got home and found out this is an alias beer

Looked ok. Dark, 2 finger - tan head, lacing is ok.

I can smell a little roast scent in there but just barely

Taste is woody, charcoalish. A little coffee.

Mouthfeel is where this beer loses me. Thin and watery. No body, but they try to make up for it with over carbonation.

Unimpressive.

From my brother, Duane. Thanks, buddy. I really wanted to like this beer. I like the idea of an older non-AB brewery in Shiner Texas. But I was disappointed. The beer does not have a good aroma. A little like maraschino cherries, perhaps. There was a very small head with no retention of lacing at all. The taste had a burnt tone but primarily it tasted like cardboard. Texture was very watery with almost no carbonation. It was not pleasant. Cold or warm it was not good, Perhaps it was old.
