had this beer on tap as part of the brewery tour. Served in a pint glass cool.

nice tan head and a dark black/brown body.

smell is earthy but not much else

tastes like a light lager but with only a hint of roast flavor.

light and watery

I have seen this trend in alot of texas beers . Watery beers that are probably thirst quenching but not conforming style-wise. This beer just is weak. Way too watery tasting, not enough malt umph nor enough noble hop character. Hops taste weird too. Off, almost catty

A: nice for a lager. Dark, intriguing. Scant head. Thin pour.

S: faint toast, hop, sour smell.

T: lighter than expected. Nice for a lager, but expected more from appearance

M: light, clean. Crisp.

O : wanted more character, but not unpleasant for lager
