A pleasant but average beer that is clean and has a bunch of biscuit taste. I would not turn this one down, but I would not go out of my way for it either.

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.
