Twisted X Premium Lager by Twisted X Brewing Company is the foundation of the Tex Mex Beer™ sensation, featuring a subtle, hoppy flavor with a refreshing finish, perfect for fighting the Hill Country heat. That hint of Mexican lager flavor comes from the Richardson Farms yellow corn sourced from right here in Central Texas. Twisted X Premium Lager is a crisp, craft-quality beer that clocks in at 5.1% ABV, leaving a refreshingly clear finish and bright flavor after every sip.

Pours a clear light golden color with white head. Cereal grains on the nose; follows onto the palate. Light bodied. Not much on the finish. Bland at best. Surely not premium.

12 oz. can poured into pilsener

L: sparkling, crystal clear gold, beautiful lager look; ultra white head of foam, not very tall on a relatively light pour, maybe 1/4- to 1/3-inch tall; a little sticking off the head, keeps a tight, perfect collar of white foam but not much lacing; the activity in the column is impressive with a fantastic river of bubbles flying up to form a steady half-skin

S: loads of corn, grain, sweet grain, sour grain -- the combination offers a bit of white wine aroma, a little sour grape in there;

T: grain bomb ... lots of corn flavor with some sweetness; a slight medicinal flavor disturbs some of the good grain flavor; has just a hair of the house paint flavor most good AALs have -- it's hard to describe, but it's probably the sum of mixing a lot of grain sweetness with that medicinal note

F: wonderful ... full but light for a good crisp lager feel

O: there's not much wrong with this one, and it's probably the best adjunct lager I've tried; about the only detractor is the bit of medicinality in the taste, but there's so much good grain flavor

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

Appearance: Pale, faintly hazy yellow in color, with a moderate, dense white head, which fades only slowly. Thick sheets of largely unbroken lacing adorn the glass walls. The sparse carbonation drifts lazily to the surface.

Aroma: There is a light tropical fruit note out front in the aroma, there are also lightly toasted pale malt notes, like fresh white bread lightly seared, and mild, yet prominent floral hops.

Taste: Opens with crisp pale malt, and abundant floral hops. As the taste progresses, mildly earthy hops rise to dominance over the lightly-toasted pale malt, vanquishing any residual malt sweetness. The hops linger on, well past the finish of the taste.

Mouth feel: Smooth and soft, fairly full, with a bit of stinging carbonation.

Drinkability/notes: Not bad, certainly would be refreshing during the oppressive summer days to come. Twisted X would pair well with classic Tex-Mex cuisine.

Presentation: Packaged in a standard twelve-ounce brown glass long-neck bottle with a pry-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

Clear straw colored pour with a small white head. Aroma of grain and light lemon. Flavor is on the fruitier side following the nose with grain and lemon dominating the flavor. Also, has some hints of biscuit and citrus. Light body and medium carbonation. Finishes dry and crisp.

On-tap at the Dig Pub in Cedar Park, TX.

Served in the pint glass with nary an inch of foam. White head settles all too quickly atop a clear, brassy-golden body with slight trickles of carbonation. Aroma is good for the style, with a dash of fruitiness complementing a slight cereal malt note and a hint of grassy hops.

The flavor starts cleanly, with a crisp bitterness from the hops and subtle hints of dried fruit. Light body could stand to have more carbonation. Not as cereal-dominated as some lagers, which I liked, but there was a strange bite on the back end of this beer that I couldn't quite put my finger on. A bit medicinal, but not bitter; a bit sharp and pungent, but not fruity enough to suggest it was a yeast ester. Still, this made for an easy drinking Light Lager on a 100F+ Austin day.
