look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a pint glass, this shows a fairly clear copper body with some visible carbonation, and a lackluster head that retains some lacing.
Smells of bread and corn, and to me also smells lightly of cherry fruits. Pleasant surprise.
Taste is more of the corn-like toasted malts. Decent.
Crisp, somewhat creamy feel, and then a slightly bitter mineral in the finish. After a few more sips now it seems to feel as if it's getting flat.Odd.
Overall, a good beer to try if you want to sample lagers that aren't made for heavily-advertised mass consumption. Otherwise, not a personal favorite.

Cloudy amber colored pour with a small off-white head. Great malty aroma with hints of caramel, yeast and toast. Taste follows the nose with caramel and bready malt flavors upfront. Slightly sweet taste that also has a nice cereal grain presence with just a hint of hops. Light to medium bodied and drinks really easy. Very well done beer.

A: Pours a clear copper/orange color. A two finger white head forms with good retention and some patchy lace.
S: I love the simple toasted malt aroma here. Lightly sweet caramel malts. Lager yeast. Very simple, but really good.
T: Toasted and sweet malts up front. That quickly fades, with more cereal grains coming through. Just a hint of bitterness lingers.
M/D: A light to medium body. Very clean and dry. I wish there was just a bit more crisp bite though. Still nothing to complain about. So easy and enjoyable to drink. All day with this.

A very well made lager. I enjoy this more and more with each sip. I love the style, and am glad there is a good readily available Texas option.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

12 oz. bottle poured into pilsener

L: clear gold, no amber ... rich yellow in this one; huge full inch of a thick head, lots of staying power and it sticks well; not much lacing but the pour is a for-sure 5

S: grain, toasted grain, sweet bread malt; corn; hint of wheat; a cut maizefield ... it's kind of a grain bomb and very nice

T: loads of grain with hints of that bread malt and some spicy hops; very clean bite of bitter but not a big one, just very perceptable (black pepper); light sweetness; some earthiness ... gets just a touch medicinal but still very tasty

F: solid all around, very drinkable ... can get watery with too big a pour

O: fantastic six-pack! I loved it all the way through and a perfect diversion from the hop-crazy landscape out there right now; just enough sweetness for taste but not enough to overpower the good toasted grain notes. i will definitely be drinking this one again.
