On tap at Onion Creek.

The beer pours a copper color with a white head. The aroma is very malty with a lot of toffee and caramel notes. The flavor is more of the same, with some large toffee notes. I also get a little bit of grass and some caramel malt, but this thing is a toffee bomb. Easy to drink and refreshing. Thin to medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

I only got to try 5oz of this stuff as part of a flight of 5 Texas beers for $10. Served on tap at the Flying Saucer Beer Emporium in downtown Houston, Texas.

Nice, clear, copper color with a 1-finger white head that lasted about a minute. Minimal lacing.

Weak nose with just a faint hint of caramel malt.

The flavor was more toffee-like than caramel-like, with a good amount of bittering hops. Hoppier than most red ales.

Light bodied with only moderate carbonation.

Nothing remarkable, but very drinkable.

12 oz can is overcarbonated with large-bubbled white head taking up the majority of the glass. Expectedly sticks around quite some time.

Nose is a light toffee and some mildly fruity yeast. CO2 aromas abound with a little bit of floral hops.

Taste is a pleasant blend of caramel and leafy hops. The overcarbonation is a bit of a bummer, but this is not a bad little flagship amber that is easy to drink and has some interesting flavors. I wouldnt be opposed to drinking this again, would make a good offering at a ballgame...ahem Minute Maid, Toyota Center and NRG Stadium.
