3.69/5  rDev +15.7%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A- Pours a nice burnt orange, little to no head (white in color), no lacing, faint bubbling.

S- Very malty, like light rye bread. Alcohol is noticeable on the back end. Faint nutmeg.

T/M- On the lighter side of a medium body, mildly bitter aftertaste, decent linger.

D- I feel like this was definitely made to be a session beer. I've only seen it sold in twelve packs and it says amber beer on the bottle. In TX, if a beer says 'beer' on the label, it is almost certain that the beer is under 5% ABV. It is brewed each year for the OU vs. TX game. It was first brewed in Sept. 2007 in rebuttal to an Oklahoma beer that was called 'Texas Sux'. It's pretty delicious.

"Firstly, you don't write or review a beer called "Oklahoma Suks" to showcase your piracy of wine tasting terminology. You buy Oklahoma Suks in the fall because OU sucks. You drink Oklahoma Suks because the Red River Rivalry happens every year around this time. It's better than Bud. And Texas is better than Oklahoma."

I agree with all of these statements except the final one. GO POKES!

Appearance: Deep, dark amber, with a somewhat coarse tan head, which retains fairly well. Decent, scattered lacing adorns the glass walls.

Aroma: Dark bread malty aroma, rather pronounced, but pleasant. There seems to be a bit of alcohol in the aroma.

Taste: Opens with substantial dark malt, rather like dark German bread. As the taste progresses, toasted malt dominates. Towards the finish, there is a wave of sweet caramel.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, pleasant, quite drinkable.

Drinkability/notes: A novelty beer, but still good. Now for the obligatory Oklahoma joke: "Why is it called the Sooner State? Because you would sooner leave than stay there." Disclaimer: Having lived there, I can say that Oklahomans are wonderful people, I just prefer Texas.

Presentation: Packaged in a standard twelve-ounce brown glass long neck bottle, sealed with a pop-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

Oklahoma sucks. What else needs to be said? Go out and grab a 6 pack of this and enjoy. Also, it's 4.8% abv
