My first review here on BA so Ill start with the oldest craft beer in my hometown of Houston, Tx.

12 oz twist-off brown bottle with a bottled on date of 03/21/14 poured into 8oz Saint Arnold tour glass. Text under the bottle cap says "Draft dodger".

Appearance: clear golden amber color with 1 finger of white head that dissipates into a fine lace

Smell: Maltiness and biscuit with a slight floral hop aroma but very subdued

Taste: similar to the aroma with malt upfront balancing into a delicate floral hop finish

Mouthfeel: Slight creaminess from the Saint Arnold house yeast but very well carbonated

Overall: This is a beer that seems to be overshadowed now by Saint Arnold's newer beers and other craft beer in Texas. This amber ale still deserves much respect to its greatest characteristic: balance. The caravienne malt works very well with the floral notes from the liberty hops with neither side getting too overpowering. This beer is very versatile and can pair excellently with a wide range of foods.
