I didn't think it was a great beer but it is easy drinking in the Texas heat.

L: Dark brown reddish semi clear hue with a thin head.

A: The aroma is toasty malts and caramel.

T: Toasty malts, sweet caramel, some hop bitterness but not much. Could have had a a bit more flavor.

F: Medium body, easy drinking, and overall nice.

Very light and balanced. It's from Texas so it's probably better' you. Just enough malts. You could have a few of these and not get sick of them.

Pours reddish brown with a finger nail head that leaves no lacing and recedes almost immediately. Subtle nose of brown sugar and bready malts. Taste is a malt forward amber- bready malt, brown sugar, and a grassy finish. Taste feels half finished, like they forgot to add something. Medium body and light carbonation with a weird finish and no aftertaste.
It's a good start but underwhelming and forgettable "blah" amber. The finish is gummy and unappetizing. I expected more.
