Surprisingly tasty and refreshing beer. Nice malty aroma. Malty on the palette with a crisp finish, Smooth, malty flavor. Pours a pretty light amber with a substantial head of foam ... nice lacing as the head subsides. It was hard to know what to expect from reading the description on the bottle, although it was interesting reading a little bit of Shiner Brewery lore.

Clear golden orange pour with a minimal white head and light carbonation. Aroma is mainly grain and toast. Medium bodied with lots of grain and malt flavors upfront but there is a nice hop presence on the back end leading to a slightly bitter finish.

A: Light copper golden color. Good carbonation and foam retention. Whitefish foam. Nice looking.

S: Wheat, grain, barley, light malt.

T: Smooth, cool, juicy and mellow. A little grain and sunflower seed. Bright and lively; Slightly sweet and slightly tangy on the finish. Also a longer floral finish of rose water and maybe a little nectarine and peach. Oh so slight on the fruit though.

M: Smooth and mellow. Thin and crisp feeling makes it really refreshing. Almost no dryness, for better or worse.

O: Better than I expected. Nice refreshing German beer. Would be a great hot weather beer or a camping beer.
