On tap in Allen, Texas. (I couldn't find another listing for this beer so I posted the review here).

The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. I get a lot of sweet grain for an aroma, with not too much else going on. The flavor is similar. The grain and malt notes are very sweet. I also get some grass and a bit of a metallic quality. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation. This one missed the mark.

A - Thin white head on top of a golden brown body. Nice retention and lacing

S - Light sweet caramel malt simple aroma.

T - Bready malt up front with some spicy hops and burnt toast that is balanced by moderate bitterness. Myself and nickfl both enjoyed this one at the same time and came to this same conclusion.

M - Medium body and moderate carbonation.

Overall: Drinkable and relatively standard taste and aroma for the style.

A - Pours with a small, white head on top of a golden brown body. The head sticks around nicely and leaves good lace.

S - Light malt sweetness and some caramel with little else.

T - Bready malt up front with some spicy hops and burnt toast that is balanced by moderate bitterness.

M - Medium body, moderate carbonation, and a fairly dry finish.

D - Not a bad example of the style, but it is a bit lacking in depth and smooth malt character. Seems like it could maybe use more lagering.
