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

On draft at Buffalo Wild Wings in Lubbock, TX.

The beer is black with a half inch of beige head. The aroma offers light roast, chocolate, lager yeast, bread. Creamy feel and nice balance. Bready chocolates. Light to medium bodied with fairly low carbonation. Silky smooth and easy drinking. Good stuff.
