Can poured into glass.... can poured into mouth.
It doesn't matter how I drink this beer.. it instantly became my favorite American pale. So drinkable... so much flavor. So perfect.
This one has become a staple in my fridge.... goes great with anything. I need to try the rest of their lineup. This beer is tremendous.

An absolutely fantastic and highly original lager. This is my favorite local beer made in Austin. It has a tart, crisp character that reminds me of grapefruit, but it isn't a fruity beer, at all. It has wonderful, balanced hop characteristics and a fantastic finish. A perfect beer. I only buy it now for special occaisons because I literally drink it too fast. I can't sip it like many other beers, I open a can, pour it in a glass, blink and its gone.

There's nothing huge or outrageous about this beer it just does everything right. A full flavored and thirst quenching beer that puts all pale lagers to shame. It pours a golden orange with a bit of hops and fruit on the nose. The taste zips on your tongue with citrusy fruit and apricot flavors and a mild bitterness to give it a nice dry finish. Very crisp and very refreshing. The Zoe is a bountiful beer in a can and a total home run from Hops and Grain.

Pours golden colored with half a finger width foamy head. Only a small amount of lacing on the side. Aroma is that of tropical fruits and hops. Citrusy. Has a hint of apples as well. Malty taste with hints of citrusy tropical fruit up front, quickly followed by a grassy hoppy taste. You can discern that malty lager taste right at the end but only for a split second. Nice bitter aftertaste. I am generally not a fan of lagers, but this one definitely will do. Excellent beer. I wish it is more available at the Spec's near me.

The One They Call Zoe pours to a golden color and emits a fragrance that is very distinctive, with scents of floral, biscuit malt, and fruity aromas dominating. The scent is very juicy and just begs you to take a sip while the foam, while not incredible, is still good and it does leave some lacing.
This beer has a very interesting flavor profile and is about right in- line with the direction in which the nose leads you. The taste of biscuit- like malts, bread, tropical fruits, and toasted malts are most noticeable, but there are other great flavors as well, like grassy hops and other sensory delights.
The One They Call Zoe is a very interesting, very tasty beer with a complex flavor profile and unexpected level of smoothness. You know this is no ordinary lager the moment you open the can and your nostrils are filled with the complex and very enticing aroma. The enjoyment continues as you take one sip after another, pleasantly surprised at the beer’s incredible smoothness and anxious to open up a second can.
Hops and Grains really overachieved with this beer and I find myself still thinking about it long after my sampling was through. It’s the best Hops and Grain beer I have tried so far and I enthusiastically look forward to trying more.
