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.

Solid blonde. Nothing exceptional but was a good beer for the golf course. Easy drinking.
