This is a pretty decent beer. Like a macro lager with personality. It looks like Budweiser or whatever (maybe a little "healthier" looking: i.e. it has some color), but the head sticks around. Smells sweet and of grain. The taste matches the smell. Refreshing malt sweetness without overdoing it. The mouthfeel is even and smooth and leaves your mouth feeling clean. This is a good "anytime" beer and definitely beats Shiner's Hefeweizen. Second only to their dunkelweizen.

This is a good beer. Balanced, pleasant flavor from start to its crisp finish. Pleasantly effervescent. This came unexpectedly in an assortment of Shiner beers. and was a pleasant surprise. Quite refreshing. This makes me want to revisit the Kolsch variety and explore some more different ones.
