2.58/5  rDev -17.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

A: Very very dark gold. Nice looking beer.

S: Very hoppy with some malts.

T: Starts off sweet and bready and finishes with a very strong hop flavor that I find offensive. After tast and finish ruin this almost Yuengling -like sweetness you get at first.

M: Wet. Decently fizzy. Smooth but strong.

O: It was not bad, but I would not drink it again. I dont like the strong finish at all.

Serving type: bottle

Texans cannot brew beer yuck, yet they act like Shiner is gods gift to the earth. The beer is obviously dyed. Shiner beer doesn't stack up to even your most common domestic beer. Save yourself the trouble don't buy shiner, unless you like beer that tastes like syrup mixed with stale bud light.
