Twisted X Austin Lager beer

Imagine a hot summer day in Dallas,TX. It is 105 degrees Fahrenheit and in the backyard with my kiddo for some pool time. Could not be a more perfect setting for an ice cold beer. Today I am reviewing Twisted X Austin Lager beer. I like trying local products and this happens to be made in TX. Established in 2011,it is a fairly new brewery & also has IPAs, Blonde Ales in its product line. Located in Dripping Springs (Interesting name ) it is about 30 miles west of Austin. 
As the label indicates Austin Lager, it is a lager beer. So what exactly is lager?  I am no beer expert & it gets quite boring to get down to the technical details. Simply put lagers use an entirely different type of yeast during fermentation. For a normal beer drinker all you need to know is it reflects on the appearance, aroma and flavor of the beer. Lagers are lighter and have a more crisp fresh taste to it and of lesser IBV. It all depends on the preference of a drinker, if they prefer a darker ale or a lager. Also the choice comes down to the environment , time of the day and weather. For example, I prefer a darker higher ABV beer during winter and lager in summer.
