The Texas Brewmasters are at it again those folks in Fredericksburg have gotten me forgetting they make other brews in places like Alaska? This lager should be called Texas' Lager... With its sweet malty twist the bitters are hidden, but undeniable...Take it to contest...

I just don't understand how lagers get rated so low on BA. Especially high quality ones like this. If you don't think this is a fine lager, tell me what you are marking it down on. It has the classic mowed/ready-to-bale grassiness of the finest German lagers. Delicate hops aroma, perfect malt balance, carbonation that is spot-on. Absolutely no DMS/ diacetyl discernible to me. In my opinion, this is only one very small notch under the best German lagers (Weihenstephaner, Spaten, et al) and way better than common German imports like Becks, St. Pauli Girl, Warsteiner, to name a few. Actually tastes pretty German which is unusual for American attempts at German styles. I think this is an extremely well-made brew. I could drink it every day, especially during our hot Texas summers.

12 oz bottle pours a clear, light gold color with a fizzy white head. Not much for retention and lace..very macro looking beer.

Nose is honeyed, wet grains with a pretty substantial sweetness. Smells just ok, more like what it is supposed to be than the Pedernales IPA, thats fo sho.

Taste is pleasant graininess with a mild hop cleansing on the finish. The malt is really crisp and fresh-crushed tasting. I am surprised...pretty tasty little lager here. Id compare it to a German helles maybe. Id actually go for this again, I find myself astounded to be saying.

L- Pours a straw colored beer with a small wimpy head.
S-Malty, sweet, hoppy, wheat-y.
T-Grassy, slightly bitter flavor that's honestly an extremely well balanced flavor. Very mellow too.
F- Crisp and mellow. Very nice.
O-Decent, mellow and enjoyable wack on a German style. I float over to Dallas from time to time. If you're in the area and have it in your sights, it's a little pricey for what it is but it isn't bad nonetheless.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance:
Light blond color with a nice thin white head that’s very dense and creates an equally dense wall of lacing.
Smell:
Malts mixed with light grassy and herbal smells and a mild fruity undertone come through.
Taste:
Malts mixed in with lemon zest and even a little orange, some bitterness become present in the aftertaste
Mouthfeel:
Clean crisp and revitalizing, the carbonation really makes you want to take another sip, the alcohol content is well hidden.
Overall:

Light and golden, fair head and lace, ample carbonation.

Taste is a bit sweet with grassy notes and light hops, a slightly slick finish. Herbal notes also take a turn.

I am liking this brewery, especially their exceptionally pound-able IPA, but I'm not all that impressed with this lager. It's not bad, but I think Perdenales has some better ones. Still, always happy to try something from a good tx brewery like this one.
