Had a pint at Hobby Airport while waiting for a flight.

Barkeeps had been at Saint Arnold's Brewery the previous day and were stoked about their beers.

A - Amber, clear color, very minimal off-white head that recedes immediately, very little lacing.

S - Get some citrus, is a relatively clean and crisp nose.

T - Good balanced beer, get the citrus, slight malty character and maybe a bit of spice, leaves a crisp taste in your mouth.

M - medium bodied, medium carbonation.

O - A good session beer, could easily drink a few of these while chatting with friends.

Appearance: A nice am amber color, leaning on the brown side. Nice head, the beer has a very crisp look, defiantly makes you want to drink it.

Smell: A nice smell, somewhat toasty. A little hop character in the aroma as well, balanced nicely.

Taste: A good taste, very good projection of the smell. All of the flavors that I could pick up with my nose I can just as easily pick up with my tastebuds. Very drinkable, very good flavor.

Mouthfeel: Good carbonation, slightly intrudes on the flavor. I feel this beer's flavor is not enhanced by high carbonation, it would be better if it were smoother.

Overall: This was a very good beer, as person who has family in Houston it is nice to try all the beers from St. Arnold Brewery, and this is another good product. While I may prefer their IPA, I can see myself getting this again if I am down there.

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

A: Poured a clear orange color with a thin tan cap of foam on top.

S: first smell and wow really great hoppiness not overpowering but fruity,floral,spicey...mmm...not a whole buch of malt smell there at all.

T: Sweet honey like character which fades to malt then to hop and all the hoppy notes from the smell come to dance on the tongue as well.

M: medium to light bodied with a leaning to the light side.

O: Would definitely drink this again very well rounded flavor with a fullness to taste and a lightness in body that pleads drink me.

Pours an opaque - wait for it - AMBER colour (I know, right?), with little to no head. Kind of the colour of honey.

The nose is fresh, like spring, and a bit florid. Malty and sweet, with a creamy flourish like the caramel I used to get in HS.

The taste follows the nose, with that creamy sweet caramel swirl caught around the biscuity malts. Less hoppy than I expected, mostl just malty and kind of sweet, but it actually works. Kind of refreshing.

highly carbonated with those tiny bubbles that just pierce the whole tongue, but it finishes rather easy considering.

So my first introduction to Saint Arnold was their lawnmower beer and I was disappointed to say the least. So, my expectations were low for this, but I was pleasantly surprised. I like it. It's fairly crisp, give it a try.
