Poured from the tap. $2.50 for 22oz. Was a good deal. It was drinkable but not by a lot. If you haven't had it, do so when you're in TX.

apparently this is a rather common thing in texas, and being an AB product, gets hated on the the level of something like an michelob amber bock, but its not that, its so much better. the bock part is a little suss, ill grant that, i mean, there is no real appreciable lager profile on this, it finishes sweet and you cant taste yeast at all, but as an amber ale type, i think its pretty good. rich red color, nice head but it doesnt last. the nose and taste are of one multidimensional malt and even a taste of hops as it winds down. not overly complex, but as close to craft as it is to macro, which you cant say about many AB products i dont think.a balanced brew and a fine accompaniment to airport nachos. its also not bad on a hangover, but it probably responsible for far more than it cures. glad to have tried this one with a native texan to get some context. its better than others, thats all i can say.

It doesn't taste BAD, it just doesn't really taste great. A little watery for me.
