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.

The bottle says it is has ABV 5% but the description on BA says 4.5% Its not really red and its not Amber, it is more like a translucent brown. Notmuch of a head has some lacing. Not bitter at all. nice and refreshing. Could use some more Hops.
