Nice amber gold color with off white cap and lacing.

Aroma of caramel malt and spicy, floral hops.

Taste is malt forward with a substantial hop presence that doesn't traipse off into bitterness. Malt is a toasty, caramel style and the hops skip between being spicy and floral with spicy winning out. Not terribly complex but very well put together.

Medium texture with balancing carbonation.

This is a straight forward amber that has more hop presence (in a good way) than I usually get with standard ambers. It does have that caramel character but the hops prevent it from wandering off into sweetness. Good stuff, food and company friendly.

The look is absolutely perfect for the style. Pure copper, mostly clear, moderate head, nice lacing. Smell is somewhat subdued, toasted malt, honey, floral, nice. Taste is surprising, some light toasted malt, Pilsner graininess, and floral hops. It’s a really nice change to have the noble hops instead of the typical (cascade, centennial, liberty combo). It’s a great beer for the style, you will not be disappointed. Cheers

I got a can of this from a self made mixed six pack from Super Target in Frisco. It poured a clear amber with thin white head that is leaving a spotty lace. The scent had hints of caramel malt. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with good caramel presence. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it's a solid beer.

Not a bad amber. Had it from the can into a chilled shaker pint at an Italian restaurant. Poured a nice amber color with decent head and lacing. Smell was a bit herbal and malty. The taste was fairly smooth with a decent malty richness. It went well with my gnocchi.

This is probably the most balanced brew I've had. Strong, slightly spiced malt, a bit of cream, a touch of floral hops and the hint of warm alcohol. It stops just short of heavy to remain very drinkable. Prominent lace head, beautiful deep color, subtle nutty aroma and lingering toasted flavor.

Had a bottle with bbq lunch at Coopers in New Braunfels earlier today. No bottling date visible.

Beer was amber brown.

Nose was malty without a lot of side characteristics.

Taste was caramel malts with enough hopping to balance things out.

Mouthfeel was medium bodied and fairly refreshing and smooth after a nice hike along the Guadalupe river.

Overall not a bad beer, a nice compliment to the bbq.
