Popped a can from a 6-pack, poured it in to a pilsener glass. The beer manager at the Whip-In in Austin recommended this one, and he delivered exactly what I asked for.

A- Golden, cloudy, looks like ambrosia to me. An ample, creamy head leaves plenty of lacing on the glass.

S- Mmmm. Delicious, yeasty bread. Biscuits. Citrus lurking in there, too, for sure.

T - Subtle and incredibly delicous. Biscuits! YEAST! Bread! BEER! Water! Almost savory. Not too sweet, just a hint of citrus and honey. Yeasty like unfiltered hefeweizen but with none of the typical hefe banana/pear/clove flavors (which I personally dislike). Just enough hop bitterness to complete the flavor. Very clean finish. Incredibly refreshing. Devotees of extreme beer should look elsewhere, but thirsty folks looking for a delicious brew to drink any time at all should snap this up on sight.

M - More body than your average beer with such a gentle flavor, for sure. The sediment adds a creamy thickness, and there's just the right amount of carbonation.

D - Goes down like water, if water was much, much more delicious. The definition of a session beer. Not too much carbonation, so it won't make you all bloated and belchy. And the mild, tasty flavor combined with clean finish means that every sip just leaves me wanting another.

I love this beer, and it's one that beeradvocate has the right idea about. Many times, I think that the BA reviewers are blind to the charms of beers with a milder flavor, but apparently this one bridges the gap. Positively delightful, and an incredible bargain to boot.

I can only say good things about this beer as it has served me so well after many tastings! I have had many cans of this delightful brew from Southern Star brewing out of Conroe, TX. Pours a hazy yellow/orange, smells deliciously sweet and drinks the same. Drinkability is extremely high as I could have one of these daily! Light on the hops and malts are balanced very well with the sweetness of this brew. Truly a delight!
