Pours a straw yellow, with towering white soapy head, and a cloudy body with plenty of carbonation (Blue Moonish in appearance, but robust). Head fades soon and lacing is nearly absent.
Smells grainy with some spice , malt, bready, slight honey.
That first sip solidifies what I was skeptical about, and that is the cereal flavor this brewery was going for. Low and behold, yes. The milk and everything. The flavor of flakes of grain. The honey is subtle, but plays its role in creating a juicy-malt-mouthfeel. More milky, less medicinal. Impressed. With each sip i take there's a point where that cereal taste briefly pops..it just works. I hope everyone who can get their hands on this picks up that aspect.
Not dry, medium full mouthfeel with ample carbonation, the sugar milk brings sweetness to the grains, and a nice blend at that (4 of them per the can's description). Ive only heard of the "breakfast" concept as far as stouts are concerned, but this one sure lived up to its name. I dont recall ever enjoying grains more than i have with this ale. A new brewery here in TX from what I understand. Nice sized pint cans. Could be a session I suppose. I really enjoyed the profile of this beer. Give it a try.

Pint can poured into a tulip shaped glass.
Huge fan of this beer and my current choice for the running debate between best summer drinkin' blonde ale out of Texas. (Fireman's 4 and Bombshell Blonde were the other two contenders.)
I don't have time for a full review right now, and hopefully will be able to come back and give this more detail, but for now I wanted to say that this beer accomplishes what it sets out to do. Wonderful bready and biscuity flavor balanced with a fairly low bitterness level. Very clean on the nose letting the malt do the talking without being sweet in any way.
Wonderful beer in my opinion.
