On tap at the Draught House 43rd Anniversary Party. This is my first beer from Circle Brewing.

The beer pours an amber color with a white head. The aroma is full of toffee and caramel malt, with a little bit of grain and some grass mixed in.

The flavor is similar. I get some nice toasted malt character, along with some grass and a little bit of bitterness. There is also some nice malt sweetness from all of the caramel and toffee malt. The alcohol is completely hidden and the beer is easy to drink.

Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Had this on Tap at the Circle open house recently.

A - clear brown in color with a half-finger tan head that left behind quite a bit of thick lacing

S - caramel malts and a bit of nuttiness on the nose

T - quite a mild flavor (perhaps too mild), with some malty sweetness and a bit of tart fruit in the finish. Not overly enduring.

M - medium bodied with lots of carbonation.

D - goes down easy but lacks a bit of character.

A decent beer. Unfortunately wouldn't be my first pick given other local Austin choices.

Serving type: on-tap

This was the first time I have seen beers from this brewery. I'm always game for something new!

At the Ginger Man, served in standard pint the beer is an almost opaque dark garnet with a skim of beige head.

The aroma is nice; I get some lightly roasted malts, apples and caramel.

The taste is earthy with toasted bread, red apples and some piney hops.

The mouth was soft with low levels of carbonation. All-in-all, I thought it was a pretty decent stab at style that seems to get lost in the shuffle of big beers.

Serving type: on-tap
