Texas

3.73/5  rDev +8.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Opened 14.9 fl. oz Nitro can and poured into Nonic Glass.

Once beer settled, it formed a nice, firm 1" creamy tan head that seemed to retain well. Slight lacing on glass. Brew is light tea brown, mostly clear with interesting bubble formations on inside of glass.

Smells malty with a slight nuttiness. Has that traditional earthy and almost "old basement" taste to it. Drinks really easy, but bubbles seem nonexistent on palate. I could definitely have another or two.

Serving type: nitro-can
