LIght golden color in the glass. Average head and carbonation. This is a perfectly drinkable lager with no particular points of interest. A little aroma reminiscent of honey. Some cracker flavor. A slight graininess.

Somewhat more sweet than many American-style lagers, but maybe that's not bad since there does seem to be some actual malt flavor here. A slight bitterness for the finish but not much actual hop flavor or aroma. Pretty inoffensive. From the 12 oz bottle purchased at Texas Wine Cellars in Fredericksburg, TX.

The beer pours a very clear yellow color with a small white head. The aroma is full of grain, with some wheat and a little bit of grass thrown in. The flavor is very similar. I get a lot of biscuit malt and grain notes, with a little bit of toffee. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation. This is a fairly straightforward, one-dimensional beer. However, there is nothing offensive going on and it is refreshing and easy to drink.

Pours a clear yellow golden color with white head. Cereal grains mostly on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes pretty crisp and clean. Decent lager, nothing too fancy, but very light and drinkable.

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.

Appearance: Slightly hazy, with a very light body, similar in appearance to pear juice. The head is moderate, off-white and fairly dense and retains well. There is a modest amount of slow-rising carbonation, the lacing is scattered and patchy.

Aroma: Lots of cooked grain in the aroma, as well as grassy hops, and some slight mineral notes.

Taste: Opens with a solid, lightly toasted malt presence, with biscuit flavors being notable. There is a strong presence of grassy and slightly spicy hops. Towards the end of the taste, the hops intensify a bit, assuming an herbal bitterness, which lingers on well past the end of the taste.

Mouth feel: Soft, fairly full, with moderate zesty carbonation.

Drinkability/notes: Pleasant and drinkable, but not particularly memorable.

Presentation: Packaged in a standard twelve-ounce brown glass long neck bottle with a pry-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

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.
