Pours dark amber, cloudy with a finger width foamy head. Head retention is actually very good. Lacing is moderate. Has more of a floral, sour fruit type aroma. Almost more like a lager to me. Just slightly sweeter. Has an overall bready, malty taste. Somewhat of a spicy hoppiness at the end. Sour fruit taste at the end. Slightly dry and soapy at the end. A little skunky. Not a bad beer, but not really what I go for.

Poured from tap with minimal head, which diminished quickly. Not much lacing on the glass. Very dark amber in color, not quite opaque. Despite its color, the nose just isn't there. There's a faint hop aroma, not many malt notes. Initial taste is crisp with a slightly hoppy bitterness. As with the aroma, I was expecting a complex malt profile, given the dark color, but couldn't find it. The finish was lightly bitter. It's flavors come out a bit more as it warms.

Despite having a deceptive flavor profile, it's still quite drinkable as is... certainly drinkable in the Texas summer.
