Had a pint at the draughthouse.

A - Light orange. With a very small head that disappeared almost at once. Not sure why they call this an amber.

S - faintly malty with some caramel, minimal hop aroma

T - Best way to describe it is watery. Very little carbonation and a slight malt sweetness.

M - Light and crisp.

D - It goes down easily because there isn't much body, but the lack of complexity or much flavor doesn't really make we want another.

Thirsty Planet is a new brewer, so maybe this will improve with time.

On tap at the Draught House in Austin.

The beer pours an amber color with a white head. The aroma is pretty straight forward with a lot of caramel malt. The flavor is a mix of caramel and toffee malt. I also get some chocolate, earthy and grassy hops and some iced tea notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
