Beautiful beer, creamyish head amber in color. Really sweet deep scents with hints of brown sugar and raisins. Nutty and biscuity flavors come through strong. Simple but pleasant

A great brewery off of Hwy 71, Independence pumps out some great beer. This amber is no exception. It pours a clear amber w/ a thin white head. It smells slightly of yeast & a little bit of malt. The amber has a medium body with a roasty caramel, malt flavor. I can pickup a bit of hops towards the end. Solid amber that is very true to the style. Comparable to Fat Tire & Levitation Ale. I also love the use of the "Greetings From Austin" mural as the backdrop on the label. A great session beer that I can find in most grocery stores & on tap at many Central Texas establishments.
