A friend of mine brought me back a little mix-pack from Texas. He doesn't know a lot about craft beers, but the sentiment was nice. Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a muddled, clear, light brown coloring with a thin ring of off-white film around the surface. Aromas are subtle, with a blending of roast and sugary caramel sweetness. Flavors are watery at best, with a touch of sweet on the mid-tongue and really nothing else. I mean, there's a dose of carbonation to sharpen up the nothingness. Wow, this is like carbonated water. There's really no aftertaste because there is no taste taste. Maybe a touch of caramel, but that is really reaching. Carbonated and watery in mouth. The finish is light and clean, because there really isn't anything to linger behind. Jesus, this was a stretch to get much of anything out of this one.

This beer was free thank god!
App- This was more like a strong ale in color. Huge ruby notes and a good dense center with a small fast receding 3/4" head. No cling either.
Smell- Its coming down hill fast. A bit grainy, a bit sweet, a bit malty. Not sure what to make of this. I smelled and didnt want to taste.
Taste- WTH? I am confused. If you are going to make a red ale, dont make it taste like Bud Light mixed with more malts and some red food coloring. Just not a very good beer.
Mouth- A thicker light body and a lighter medium carbonation. More like a BL in terms of the residual flavors. Corn, malts and some sweetness.
Drink- Meh. At least it was free. Never again though.
Serving type: on-tap
