The color is pale goldish copper with no discernable head. It looks anemic somehow. No, I don't know what I mean by that.
The smell is hops but a very mild version. Honey in there as well. Not bad but not good, really. The taste is decent but somehow a bit too standard American beer-like. Sort of tastes like a macro that's had a makeover. The mouthfeel is spot-on, though. It has nice body, and a great carbonation balance. The drinkability is mixed. The mouthfeel says "yes" but the macro hop aftertaste says "no". Basically, this beer falls into my "good standby at a place with lousy selection" category. Like Shiner Bock, I'll drink it at a party but probably won't buy it for the house. I much prefer their turbo dog.
Serving type: on-tap

3.24/5 rDev -5.8%

Had several of these while in New Orleans this week.
Pours a nice clear amber colour. 1/4 inch head on the pour recedes to a thin cap. Spots of lacing here and there.
Aroma is mostly malty. Hints of caramel and biscuit with the odd whiff of herbal hops.
Flavour is pretty much on cue with the aroma. Malty and a little nutty with caramel and just a touch of hops.
Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Pretty easy drinking.
This ale is decent. I got tired of it though as I had several of these at a variety of receptions this week. Worth a try
