Sweet pale malts, bready, biscuit, a little caramel. Faint fruit in the middle. Hop bitterness is low, mostly herbal-leafy. Clean-dry finish. Medium bodied, smooth, semi-crisp, highly drinkable.

Just because a beer isn't super hoppy or barrel-aged or novel or aggressive in some way doesn't make it boring. There's a big difference between subtle and blah, and this beer will delight fans of deeply-nuanced session bears like De Ranke Gouldenberg, De la Senne's Taras Boulba, and Victory's Hop Ticket Noble. If I lived in TX, this would definitely be my house beer.

The balance is deep. The hopping is deft. The malt is right where it needs to be. The result has personality, but it's subtle, and easily missed by those who need their beers to scream for their attention. And it's equally good on draft or in bottles.

Like all subtle beers, cold serving temperatures attenuate the nuanced flavors in a way bigger beers more easily survive. You'll need to cradle your glass a while to really taste this one at typical draft temps.

On tap at the Common Table in Dallas. The beer pours a yellow-gold color with a white head. The aroma is full of grain with some lemon notes. The flavor is similar, with some grain and toffee character, as well as some citrus notes - mainly lemons and oranges. Low to no bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

12 oz bottle, pilsner glass

A – Medium to dark gold, quite clear, with high effervescence. Lots of bubbles rising to the top. A half inch of white foam with moderate-low retention.

S – Pale malt and a small amount of caramel creating a rich bread crust aroma. Some herbal, slightly woodsy hop aromas, along with a touch of stone fruit.

T – The pale malt is at the forefront with a bit of caramel and bread crust. Low, fruity hops with some herbal and floral notes. A minor tropical note lingers.

M – Medium body, leaning towards medium-full, with moderate carbonation. Seems like attenuation might be a bit low, as there’s some residual sweetness, countered by moderate hop bitterness. Moderately dry on the finish with some lingering sweetness.

O – I like this beer, though there’s nothing particularly memorable about it. An easy drinker with good flavor.
