3.03/5  rDev -9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.5

Pours a clear dark reddish amber, with a thin tan head. Smells strongly of biscuit malt, and a hint of vinegar. Taste up front is major biscuit (victory) malt, thin malty middle, and an extremely tart finish. A hint of earthy hops in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel was nice, and smooth, however, with medium carbonation levels. Drinkability was below average, this beer just wasn't too appealing to me. IMO they used WAAAY too much victory malt, and the beer got more tart the more I drank.

Has the right idea, this is a remarkable red for a Texas brew. I am actually proud this brew is from Texad,after tasting over 6 fine red ales in the PNW I am proud to be a Native Texan, sure hope there is more to come in Texas. These guys are obviously learning and they will soon master the craft.

I found this one to be pretty typical of what I think of when I see something that's labeled "red." Nicely colored quite reddish, with a good head and lace. Aroma and flavor are pretty malty with a nice hops bite and a slightly lingering bitterness from the hops. Medium bodied and smoothly carbonated. Overall I see no reason why I wouldn't buy it again when I'm in the mood for a red. This brewery hasn't disappointed me so far.

A-It is a slightly hazy amber color with a red tint to it when held up to the light. It has a large almost white head that lingers and leaves a lace
S-grain, yeast, malt and some hop aroma
T-roasted malt with a good mix of hops in the aftertaste that makes this a beer to try again.
