Bought in six pack in Texas and drunk on the beach in Florida. A little lite on the mouthfeel but overall a very enjoyable amber ale. A good balance of hops and malts and the label ain’t bad either.

A fairly clear copper brown colored brew with a solid off-white head and
great lacing. The aroma is a very subtle grainy malt, not much else. However,
the flavor jumps out with a healthy evergreen hop blended with deep molasses
malt. There's some grass bite with a neat chocolate idea floating around. I
might add a little rye grain as well. Really pretty enjoyable with a medium body
that delivers a very fine, pretty mild carbonation and a slight resin to a
smooth, easy drinking brew. Not bad.

Pours a translucent reddish amber color. Mildly sweet malt flavor with a hop aftertaste that's somewhat bitter but not objectionably so. Light bodied. This is a good, straight-up ale.

On tap at the W Austin Wet Deck, served in a Greenstripe plastic cup. Clear, light brown amber with a decent head of off white foam. Mild aroma of toasty cereal grains, slight fruit ale yeast. Malty body with caramel notes, more yeast fruitiness, slight spice and peppery bitterness. Medium body and good carbonation. Flavorful without much complexity; crisp and bitter enough to balance the malt and remain enjoyable poolside during August in Austin.

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.

Reddish Amber almost copper draft pour; thick beige head; decent cap and retention; pretty good lace and clarity. Semi sweet caramel nose; semi sweet caramel malt flavor. Lite, almost watery mouthfeel; moderate carbonation. Lite, almost nothing, hop linger...
