Pours a mild brown/blonde with one-finger head into my glass. I see that it appears to be a retro take on the Shiner brand.

Sweet with caramel on the nose. Label says "hop-jacked" but I cannot discern hops here.

Lots of malt upfront. It's grainy, lightly sweet and does give way to a touch of hops. Otherwise, pretty average.

Ditto for the mouthfeel. Is it a Shiner trademark, this near-cloying sweet finish?

I'll pass.

12 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a copper color with good clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Caramel, toasted malts, pilsner, lager yeast, and grassy notes.

Taste: Same as above with mild bitterness. A bit sweeter than one would like.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied, a little sweet, refreshing, crisp, medium carbonation, and slight bitterness.

Overall: Not a bad pale lager. Reminds me more of a bock than a lager.
