This is another decent, fairly enjoyable but basic Shiner beer that is not remotely close to their best in my book but is definitely better than the characterless Shiner Bock. In the end, it is a light, standard but reasaonbly good basic American pale lager.

Very pale gold, it has a small white head soon thinning to thin ring, no wisps or lace.

Aroma is slightly soapy perfumy apple, grain, hint of grass - standard basic pale lager but nice.

Taste is similar, grain, apple peels, grass, hint of 7-up, dryish mineral water throughout, faint sweetness amd bitterness lingering with grassy element, lingering hint of grain.
