as a resident of los angeles with access to loads of west coast pale ales, my judgment of this texas brew may be biased. poured a coppery red tone with a smallish white head topping the glass. aromas threw me off - i get something of an estery, wheat-like nose coming off this one in addition to the caramel malts. label claims there is both "assertive aromas" and "hoppy brightness". the amlt characteristics are more prevalent than the US hop combination in my opinion. fruitier than i would have thought. i probably had built up in my mind a bit of an expectation for this beer, but it wasn't that great. the mirror pond i revisited in the store was better, but when in te-jas you gotta go with the local. nothing special here.

Clear light amber pour with a small head and light carbonation. Nice grainy aroma. Flavor is pretty basic with a bit of sweet and bready malt backed by a light grassy hop bitterness with just a hint of grapefruit. Crisp finish. Very basic...not bad but nothing stands out to make me want another.

I really did not like this one. Upon reading reviews I was really excited to try this beer, as I love fruity beers. But I got no fruit flavor what so ever. I was very disappointed. The best thing about this beer was the appearance. It looked exactly how a beer is supposed to look. Nice amber color. Taste at first was kind of rotton but it got to tasting a bit bitter after that. I just did not care for it at all. I finished it out of obligation not to waste it honestly.
