12oz bottle, no apparent freshness date. Thanks to my brother-in-law and father-in-law for the "Family Reunion" mixed 12 pack for my birthday.
A - golden with exceptional clarity and a nice frothy off-white head that holds good retention and fades to a foam
S - grain, spicy & grassy hops
T - grassy hops pair with grain, faint caramel, mild grassy and spicy hops; nice overall balance
M - lighter body, moderate carbonation
O - not bad. I prefer it over the Premium beer and the Czech Pilsner that were also in the mixed pack, but I wouldn't buy this in the future.

A - Pours a pilsner yellow amber. Forms one finger of head that dissipates down to a steady half finger, has nice whispy lacing.
S - Sweetness, hops, has a kind of IPA aroma to it, perhaps caramel in the background and some citrus.
T - Mild alcohol and sweetness, tastes like 1 part IPA and 3 parts pilsner, basically an INCREDIBLY light IPA taste, not too in depth in flavor, but definitely easy drinking, thirst quenching and quite sessionable.
O - A decent beer.
V - I have to give it a horrible rating for value as, this beer is a special reserve item and as such you can nowadays only find this in the Shiner family variety pack, and you only get one when you buy it. Worth a try though.

Not the greatest beer. A little mushroomy. Probably would not do again.
