The Deep Ellum is a nice, light, quaffable type of beer that would be a good alternative to Miller Light or Coors Lite poolside. Enough said. Let’s call this one two out of five stars.

The Rahr is a roasted, toasty caramel and chocolate malt affair. Good, would likely order again. Let’s call this one three out of five stars.
