Reviewed 10/19/2008 (draft @ Alamo Drafthouse Ritz, Austin, TX):

Pours a clear yellow colored body, with a white colored head, lastingish. Has some aroma, but not very much. Some grain maybe, it's hard to tell. Bitter taste, with some malt, watery palate.

Pours a pale golden color, almost straw-like; a thin ecru head that dissipates rather rapidly but provides a little bit of lacing. Smells very woodsy, with an adequate balance of malts and hops. The taste is crisp but very bitter in the back, and the alcohol is evident. Overly dense mouthfeel with a strong, dry aftertaste.

FourthBeer potential: BELOW AVERAGE. I wasn't quite a fan of this one, but I guess it's because non-IPA bitter beers seem a little off to me. Still a decent, drinkable brew, but too much kick relative to other pilsners.
