Texas

2.98/5  rDev -4.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

Got in a mix-and-match pack; otherwise I'd have probably ignored this. It pours a very black color, appropriately, with a thin head of tan foam. The aroma is very light--almost non-existent. I pick up just a little bit of very lightly roasted malt, though it is Guinness-like--imagine smelling a Guinness across the room. Bland as vanilla flavor as well. Just a hint of roast, and little else. Not any malt flavor, no hop flavor, no yeast flavor. Completely average.

This is the sort of beer that actively caters to the lowest-common-denominator of beer tastes. I'll be quite content to never drink another one of these in my life.
