Description 

Our flagship beer serves up West Texas 12 ounces at a time. What happens when you add some hops and barley to a dash of rain cloud, a pinch of gunpowder and Barley malt straight from America's heartland? That special clean, crisp bitterness and spicy, floral aroma that can only be found in Tejas.

The beer had a very nice malty aroma that was somewhat grainy with slight fruitiness compounded with a golden straw color and low carbonation. The flavor was well balanced between the low malt and hop profile. Both of these aspects should be at a minimum for the style, and they were. The body was light and the mouthfeel was the same, however, the beer suffered from low carbonation. Carbonation can do wonders for a beer, giving it more “life” and accentuating the flavors. I still get nice fruity esters and a sweet malt finish in the aftertaste making this an enjoyable and quenching beer.
