Picked up a mixed Shiner six to try the brewery. This one has a similar appearance to the others I have tried so far. They seem to all look the same except color. Same with smell. Not a lot going on there. But the taste is pretty good on this one. Nice roasted flavor and pretty smooth with no aftertaste. Overall I am finding the Shiner beers to be decent, and this one I would certainly drink again, although I also would not go out of my way to get by any stretch.

i actually got this black lager from a friend who didnt like it- but he's a bud drinker, so i knew that didnt mean anything. I think its pretty good. the color is dark- not opaque...there is an almost deep garnet color when you hold it up to the light. there isnt much going on in the nose at all, maybe some faint spices- but im going out on a limb for that one. the taste is nutty, not too bitter....with a surprisingly smooth finish.
