3.25/5  rDev -4.4%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Slightly hazy, with a very light body, similar in appearance to pear juice. The head is moderate, off-white and fairly dense and retains well. There is a modest amount of slow-rising carbonation, the lacing is scattered and patchy.

Aroma: Lots of cooked grain in the aroma, as well as grassy hops, and some slight mineral notes.

Taste: Opens with a solid, lightly toasted malt presence, with biscuit flavors being notable. There is a strong presence of grassy and slightly spicy hops. Towards the end of the taste, the hops intensify a bit, assuming an herbal bitterness, which lingers on well past the end of the taste.

Mouth feel: Soft, fairly full, with moderate zesty carbonation.

Drinkability/notes: Pleasant and drinkable, but not particularly memorable.

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

The beer pours a very clear yellow color with a small white head. The aroma is full of grain, with some wheat and a little bit of grass thrown in. The flavor is very similar. I get a lot of biscuit malt and grain notes, with a little bit of toffee. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation. This is a fairly straightforward, one-dimensional beer. However, there is nothing offensive going on and it is refreshing and easy to drink.

3.15/5  rDev -7.4%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

Pours a medium gold to almost red tint. Smells of the usual hop and malt like that of a red or amber ale. Nothing special but looking to be a good session beer. Flavor is hoppy with little sweetness from the malt. It shines on mouthfeel with good carbonation for a long lasting satisfaction. Overall an ok beer would buy a six pack for a bbq

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance:
Light blond color with a nice thin white head that’s very dense and creates an equally dense wall of lacing.
Smell:
Malts mixed with light grassy and herbal smells and a mild fruity undertone come through.
Taste:
Malts mixed in with lemon zest and even a little orange, some bitterness become present in the aftertaste
Mouthfeel:
Clean crisp and revitalizing, the carbonation really makes you want to take another sip, the alcohol content is well hidden.
Overall:

12 oz bottle pours a clear, light gold color with a fizzy white head. Not much for retention and lace..very macro looking beer.

Nose is honeyed, wet grains with a pretty substantial sweetness. Smells just ok, more like what it is supposed to be than the Pedernales IPA, thats fo sho.

Taste is pleasant graininess with a mild hop cleansing on the finish. The malt is really crisp and fresh-crushed tasting. I am surprised...pretty tasty little lager here. Id compare it to a German helles maybe. Id actually go for this again, I find myself astounded to be saying.

Light and golden, fair head and lace, ample carbonation.

Taste is a bit sweet with grassy notes and light hops, a slightly slick finish. Herbal notes also take a turn.

I am liking this brewery, especially their exceptionally pound-able IPA, but I'm not all that impressed with this lager. It's not bad, but I think Perdenales has some better ones. Still, always happy to try something from a good tx brewery like this one.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

LIght golden color in the glass. Average head and carbonation. This is a perfectly drinkable lager with no particular points of interest. A little aroma reminiscent of honey. Some cracker flavor. A slight graininess.

Somewhat more sweet than many American-style lagers, but maybe that's not bad since there does seem to be some actual malt flavor here. A slight bitterness for the finish but not much actual hop flavor or aroma. Pretty inoffensive. From the 12 oz bottle purchased at Texas Wine Cellars in Fredericksburg, TX.
