I've read enough beer reviews to know that everyone can go as far as he/she wants to picking things apart. The beer looks nice with a light, lacy head. The smell didn't offer me much, honestly, but as an ale perhaps it shouldn't overpower. Mouthfeel was a bit thin, almost watery. As a native Texan I had high hopes for this one as I know they fought hard for the logo. But the beer doesn't meet the hype. Remarkably forgettable. Decent effort at the micro brewery within the Alamo city but there are many, MANY better beers available. A sad statement on commercialism, really. I'm not even sure they make this beer at the brewery. Word on the street is it's actually made by Real Ale????

This is a very drinkable beer. Yellow more than golden in color. Smells of fresh white bread. Taste and mouth if a pilsner more than a lager. My first but surely not my last.

I really like this beer. Been drinking it since about '05. It's a consistent go to. Not sure about "lacing" or any of that stuff. Just a good drinkable beer with flavor. Two things I don't care for: (1) new packaging - I liked the gold and black, made it easy to find; (2) I think they tinkered with the recipe or the brewing process - tastes a little more yeasty and unfiltered than it used to.
