12 oz cn of 'Dammit Jim' (note proper spellling) poured into a large wine glass and 'Imported from Texas' kind of like my can of JR Ewing beer. Pour is a hazy copper amber with a half inch of light tan foam atop it all. Looks a bit muddled but is fairly clear in the light. Decent retention.

Aroma of muddled piney hops and a slight hint of ethanol. Bit of caramel and a touch of added spice. Expands a bit with warming to become moderately complex. Taste follows but offers more depth than expected. Caramel notes are there but not sweet and with a decent hop spice component. Still a bit muddled/old in a sense.

A light red in the malt delivery and with a steely presence. Mixed feelings on the aroma though likely an easy quaff if drinking from the can

Great beer from a great place! Poured from a can into a glass. Color was amber/light brown. Smell was very malty. Poured and produced a Nice one inch head that smelled bready. Left little to no lacing. Tasted malty the lightest hint of hops at the end. Nice medium carbonation with a smooth feeling. Would buy again!

12oz can poured. Starting temp 45+ degrees. Medium amber color. Smelled like hops and had very hoppy taste. I am not an IPA fan and don't like strong hoppy presence in other styles, either. Beyond the hops, the flavor had promise. Mouthfeel is fine. Not a bad beer overall, just not my style.

22 oz bomber is ridiculously over-carbonated, took 4 pours to get 2/3 of the beer in a duvel tulip. Even on the crack of the crown, I knew it was not going to be good - Im surprised the bottle didnt break.

Nose is a nice hoppy amber aroma with a little bit of fruit, nuttiness and toasted malt. Well-rounded and balanced.

Taste throws some nuttiness with toffee and hops. Nice, too bad it is waaay overcarbonated, even some swirling leaves it too bubbly. This could be a upper tier amber if they get things worked out on the CO2. Leans hoppy, which I like in this style and the malts taste fresh and grainy. Im impressed despite the carbo issues, there is some good stuff going on with the malt and hops here.

Wasn't expecting much from this beer, for some reason, but DJ is a solid if somewhat undistinguished amber ale. Seems a bit above average on the carbonation front for an ale, and on the lighter side (even for an amber), but has a nice aroma and goes down easily. While not at the top of my amber list, it's a relatively local alternative I'd be happy to serve.

Have had one draft plus cans from two different lots. Although called an amber it's almost an IPA. It's a delightful beer to quaff. It is a tad cloudy but that doesn't affect the taste. Light head and lacing but the malt notes are there. The hop aroma and tongue coating last -- a "Good thing" IMHO. I've picked up a couple of six packs the past two time I've been in central Texas (H.E.B. rocks!)
