Twelve ounce can to a tulip glass..
Slightly darker gold than a Bud Light. Clear. Bright.
Aroma of bread, hay, very slight citrus.
The taste follows the nose but more lemony citrus. Clean, dry, and yeast and bread on the end.
Body could be a tad heavier for my taste, but a very good beer.
Overall a great beer, one that I drink from time to time.
I would recommend this to anyone. Easy drinking beer.

Poured into a pint glass, and the pour yield a thin head that dissipated quickly. The aroma was weak and malty, barely standing out. The taste was just what I'm looking for in a pale or blonde ale - crisp flavor, low bitterness and refreshing aftertaste that fades quickly. Smooth and crisp. Another wonderful ale from Texas.

This beer pours with a slight haze. It is an unfiltered beer, so that is to be expected. The aroma is sweet/caramel. This is a full bodied beer that goes down nice and smooth. Although full bodied, this beer is not overly heavy, so you can drink it on a nice warm summer day or a nice winter's eve. Both would be enjoyable.
