3.58/5  rDev -2.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

$2.50 a pint during Tuesday special, 4.19.11.

One finger white head, quick dissipation with good lacing. Light amber body, several sporadic rising trails of carbonation.Not much going on in the nose, perhaps because the beer was served too cold. Taste is dominated by caramel and crystal malts which threw some cherry-ish esters on back end, not a lot of hops, a bit floral, definitely malt forward. Mouthfeel is medium, decent effervescence leading to a fairly dry finish. Pretty sessionable, a good beer to start the evening, though the lack of hop presence in the taste was a bit detracting.

Serving type: on-tap

On tap at the brewpub in the outskirts of San Antonio.

Clear deep amber color with a durable off-white head that leaves fine lacing.

Aroma: sweet and simple.

Flavor: loaded with caramel and roasted grains, it also has a surprising chocolate tone.

Feel: light-medium body and near medium carbonation. .

O: modestly above average for style.

Serving type: on-tap
