look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Presentation: 12 oz brown long neck twist, red white and blue colours for the label. No freshness date.
Appearance: Yellowish straw colour, decent head that looks like frothed milk which leaves some stickiness behind.
Smell: Mostly clean aroma with hints of cooked corn, faint hop twang within the fermented vagueness.
Taste: Crispness and smoothness go hand and hand to make for a real nice flowing mouth feel, carbonation is at a perfect and balanced medium level to hold the light body together. Almost immaculate palate with faint at best for malt character, lots of cracker like grain on the tongue that seems to head more towards a fresh cut hay flavour (DMS). Hops are scarce though are at the appropriate level they should be at with a beer this light. Obviously on the dry side. Bitterness brings a sharp twang to the mouth and nearly cleans house to leave not much at all in the after taste. The finish is just the after shock of the hop twang and some powdery grain.
Notes: On par with the big three (Bud, Miller, Coors) if not a tad better, that is a hard thing to do being that beers this small have to be flawless regardless if they have little flavour or not. On a hot sweaty day this would be a perfect ice cold beer to grab.

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.
