Poured from bottle into Bitburger pilsener glass.
A: Standard pilsener coloring with one finger head and solid lacing. Pretty high level of carbonation.
S: Just not much nose, especially for a pilsener. Slight hop tones but pretty disappointing.
T & M: Rating to style the taste was far better than the nose. Definitely had the distinct Czech pils spiciness with the hops. Mouthfeel fairly thin bodied and I would have liked a little more malt backing. With that being said I think Shiner did good job brewing a good representation of a Czech pils.
D: Quite drinkable although I still prefer the Frost overall in comparing recent Shiner offerings. This brew was about what I would expect from a Shiner pilsener in that it is a little conservative.
Serving type: bottle
