Pours Deep Amber color with 1 finger white head, and left wonderful lacing - is really quite beautiful in the glass. Would have gotten a 5 from me if I could have gotten a little more head out of it.
Aroma - is kinda of metallic - really have to dig hard to get some bready notes and just a touch of sweetness.
Taste - get some bready character upfront followed by just a bit of crystal malt sweetness but not too much. Not any hop bitterness from this one. Finishes in the sweet side.
Mouthful is on the thin side of medium and nicely carbed.
Overall, this is a great, easy drinkin', beer! One I could consume copious amounts of on a warm day at a bbq, taking in a game or just playing poker. There is nothing too complex or complicated going on with this one, and sometimes thats just what Im looking for. This brew disappears faster from my glass than any other beer I drink. This is my Bud Light! Too bad I have to go to Texas to get it though....
