Purchased from the Class Six on post. This is the last of the sixer. I've had other Shiner brews and seen some good offerings from the place, though a beer snob might give them a thumbs down.
Pours a light straw with a finger of very white head. Low retention, some lacing. Moderately active carbonation, very good clarity. Looks like a Miller or equivalent. Nose has corn grits, some hay, and a light hop presence. Very light.
Tastes of grain, but not malty. Light hop presence. Good mouthfeel due to pretty active carbonation, and remains so even three minutes after opening and pouring. Dry finish.
This beer would appeal to the macro adjunct lager crowd. It's got a little more character than a Miller and I think I'd choose it over the big three in a blind taste test; Lord knows it holds up better because it isn't gross at just below cellar temps, which is in its favor. However, if you -told- me this was a macro adjunct lager, I'd probably believe you, because there's not a lot here that's different.
I'm appreciating it more because it's over a hundred degrees out.

This lager was pretty good. It was not what I expected, it was lighter than I thought that it would be. It smelled really good as well. The taste was not that bad, I know that I liked it. If anyone has not had this beer They should try it out. That is if you like this kind of beer, It had a golden look to it. I know that I have always liked Shiner beers, so if their are anymore out their that I have not had I can't wait to try them.
