Looks more like a brown ale to me, tan medium head and mostly clear brown color. Smell is predominately malt, Carmel and toast. Taste is surprisingly balanced, enough west coast hops to even out the heavier malts. You would never guess since it doesn’t come out in the aroma. It’s nice. Cheers

Pours out hazy brown with a tan head. Retention is moderate as well as lacing.
The nose is grainy and has a caramel sweetness to it. Also picking up faint hops.
The taste has some caramel sweetness up front and a grainy finish. Somewhat bland.
The mouthfeel is a bit watery. Carbonation is low and could stand to be a tad higher.

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.
