A: Brown with a red tint, thin khaki colored head that dissipates quickly leaving no head

S: Sweet bread malts, light hint of hops

T: Sweet bread, a bit of a toasted malt flavor with a small amount of hop bitterness on the end

M: Light, very drinkable

O: A dark lager that is easy to drink and has a sweet flavor. If I lived in Texas I would probably drink this pretty often.

Although it says this beer is only available in Texas, I purchased a bottle as part of a mixed six pack in Bastrop,LA.Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a bronze color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of malts, some corn. Taste is light malts, a bit of bread, bland and boring. Feels light in the mouth and overall, nothing offensive, but lacking in flavor and quality.

A - Dark almost body, darker than maple syrup but not as dark as cola. Bone white head with some lacing. Minor continued carbonation. 3.25

S - Faint caramel and strong adjunt smells. Like corn flavored soda with a dash of honey and caramel apples. Meh. 2.75

T - Stale boring. Bland. Not much more flavorful that Bud or Miller. 2

M - A bit too fizzy and not enough body. The adjunct fermentables just make it too loose and watery and stingy not thick and malty and full. 2.

O - This was a free beer, but I would never buy it nor recommend it for another person I cared for. 2.

Had a disinctive Amber taste but not much else. Very light body, light IBU. Copper in color. Overall, I was not pleased

This is obviously not a special beer in any way. It's alright and not a bad beer to drink at a tailgate or with some football style food. Pretty easy to drink, but very little flavor.
