This weekend in Texas we are expecting a big winter storm, so I headed out to stock up on “research material”. The first of that supply is Accused Amber Larger from Legal Draft Beer Company.

The Pour

Poured into a pint glass from a twelve-ounce can, Accused pours a beautiful amber in color with a thick layer of head and lacing as you drink. The aroma is prunes, raisins, and molasses with a sour, high note in the background. Flavor follows the nose pretty well, but the sourness really comes through. It’s almost like fermented dark fruits and caramelized malts.

The Taste of Accused

Semi-sweet, bready, caramel, biscuit, slight honey. Clean lager yeast character, almost apple-like. Hop bitterness is mild, I’m getting spicy noble hops. The finish is crisp and clean, with a slight dryness. Light-medium bodied, crisp, clean, refreshing, well carbonated, super drinkable.

Brewers Description of Accused

“Copper lager with lightly toasted malt notes and a clean finish.”

The Legal Draft Taproom

Legal Draft is located in Arlington Texas.  Their Taproom is open Thursday thru Sunday (usually).  The taproom features indoor and outdoor seating. Most Saturdays food trucks parked there.  They always enjoy meeting your friendly dogs in the taproom or on the patio. They are just a mile from Arlington’s entertainment district.  This district has everything you could want to do.  From the original Six Flags Park to the Dallas Cowboys, Texas Rangers and The Arlington Music Hall. 

Opinion of Accused

I said super drinkable and I was not kidding.  This beer is a refreshing lager.  I will stock up on this one when it warms up to have a supply ready for the spring and summer.  This is a beer that holds up to both the lighter foods of summer as well as the heartier heavier foods of winter.  I recommend serving Accused with burgers in the summer and a good pot roast with roasted potatoes, carrots, and broccoli.  

By the Numbers
