A: Dark color brown.

S: Not much here on the nose but nothing to complain about I guess.

T: Now, I don't dislike shiner, and this review is based purely objectiveness. This isn't bad. It's definitely not amazing, as you'd expect, but not bad at all. It's refreshing, crispy, and it's got a peppery wheat bock taste to it.

M: Light bodied but not super light. Heavier side. Good carb on it as well.

O: Whenever I just want a lighter refreshing beer to drink, I usually go for the lighter lagers. Shiner works for this. It's not my favorite style of lager, but it's not bad at all. It is good for the money. Nice beer overall.

Bottle purchased and drank at Kelly's Saloon in Geneseo, NY.

Pours a clear orange yellow. No head or lacing.

Smells like nothing, really. I can't pick out much here.

The taste is similarly boring- some bready malt, some grainy sweetness. That's about it. Boooring.

Light bodied, crisp, drinkable.

Pass.
