This was quite a surprise by this pale mild ale. The beer is lightly cloudy as if it were a wheat and had a mild, ambiguous fruit taste. This is a beer I could (and did) drink all afternoon. The glass rim is trimmed out in powdered sugar as you would expect a funnel cake to be. It is well worth a trip to the State Fair of Texas to have a drink. Be sure to get an actual funnel cake to eat alongside.

Cloudy, borderline turbid. Smells like powdered sugar and ... grease? Tastes sweet and cakey. Whatever they were trying to accomplish here might be spot on, but I'm done with it.

On tap at Community beer Co. Look is bright pale ale yellow. Zero head. Smell is very "flavoring" which actually turned me off. In actually its a decent pale ale, not much vanilla or fair flair. Basic, good carbonation, and refreshing.

A very pretty clear amber color. Nice spicy smell. I'm going against my anti-sweet mind, but for the "cake" part of funnel cake, maybe it could have just a bit of sweetness? Just say in'.
