Appearance: Hazy copper color, with a lot of suspended carbonation. The large, dense white head soon fades to a scattering of foam on the surface. Scattered, patchy lacing rings the glass wall.

Aroma: Prominent citrus rind, as well as a strong note of toasted malt, quite pleasant.

Taste: Open with robust citrus hops, tending toward grapefruit and lemon rind. Soon after, substantial toasted malt presents, this carries the taste throughout, although the hops remain notable throughout. The ABV of 5.9% falls in the middle of the range for the style, and was not tasted or felt. Finishes with the solid malt backbone and strong hop profile intact.

Mouth feel: Soft, full, and pleasant, with just a hint of carbonation.

Drinkability/notes: Really quite good, offers a lot of complexity for an example of its style. Would pair well with barbecue or smoked meats. In all, it reminds me of bolder, more robust version of New Belgium's Fat Tire Amber Ale. Buffalo Bayou 1836 is under-rated, in my opinion.

Presentation: Packaged in a standard twelve-ounce aluminum can, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

Look: Beautiful copper color, lacy head that lasts; Smell: Citrusy; Taste: Citrusy, clean with a nice malty highlight; Feel: creamy. Overall this is a very fine ale. It's really delicious. It finishes cleanly. I believe that this ale is under-appreciated. The average BA score of 80 is way too low.

Great beer. It is an amber beer. It has that copper (think sucking on pennys) taste that ambers can have and I like. It is one of their most popular beers, and I can tell why.

Poured from a can into a pint glass. Golden orange yellow color with a decent head and lacing. Smell is light but slightly floral. Malty taste, slightly bitter. Not bad.
