look: 2.5 | smell: 1 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Poured into a pint glass. A transparent copper color with half finger of head that was bubbly and short-lived.

Smells faintly like wet hay. It has an unpleasant smell too, hard to place but not nice.

Mild malt sweetness at first, a faint touch of bitter (not really bitter, but less sweet). Watery taste overall.

Medium body, moderate carbonation, unremarkable.

This was difficult because I used to drink Shiner all the time years ago when I lived in Corpus Christi because it was the only beer with some flavor to it. It's a caramel colored American lager with a little less carbonation and a touch of sweetness.
