On tap at the brewpub in San Antonio.

Appearance: Pours amber with a semi-durable head that leaves good lacing.

Feel: Near medium body and medium carbonation.

Flavor: Appropriately hoppy. Some malt flavor with a dominate input from hops. Moderately bold for style. .

O: good but not great.

Immediately afterwards, I had a special cask-conditioned version of this beer. AS expected, it had lower, softer carbonation, a much weaker head, and some subtle changes similar to those produced by aging.

Darker and maltier than many Pale Ales. Nice hop flavors make for a very drinkable beer. Not exceptional or noteworthy, but a good quality pale.
