Had it on Tap at D&T Drive Inn in Houston.

Tan/copper color with nice discolored head. It has very good flavors for a lager. Malty and some hops, nothing to blow you away. but a good quality drinkable beer. carbonation is standard for a lager.

would drink again.

On tap at Onion Creek, Houston

Copper, clear, super sticky head of beige/tan foam.

Slightly hoppy fruit flavor, very sweet. Hop bite is a bit grassy

(original review above, June 22, 2015)

additional notes from first chance to try it out of a can -- July 28, 2016 -- 12 oz. can poured into pilsener

L: head is fantastic, about 1-inch to 1.5 inches of offwhite/beige foam; no sticking or lacing but it does keep a solid collar; super tight column of bubbles flying up middle of glass

S: so malty ... some grain, too, and it's good toasted grain; the toasted malt note is fantastic; a little hoppy thing ... almost grassy or onion

T: earthy hop bite, toasted grain and lots of toasted malt sweetness

Original numbers: 4.75, 4, 4.25, 5, 4.5
