2/13/15 - Bottle - Good Shiner offering, my favorite from this brewer to date. Light, crisp beer has a good taste, hops were noticeable but not very strong, taste was good and had character compared to other shiner offerings. Nice light offering, and would definitely order again.

Crystal clear golden in color. Minimal head dissapating quickly and minimal lacing. Aroma is very light with malt, toast and a touch of citrus coming through. Taste is very light with bready and earthiness being the dominant flavors. Carbonation is nice and mouthfeel is good. This beer, being a pilsner, is still lacking the flavor and balance that I would have expected.......

12oz bottle, date etched 04 17 15; thanks to my brother-in-law & father-in-law for the "Family Reunion" mixed 12 pack for my birthday
A - deep golden body with a thin off-white head that dissipates quickly
S - grain, earthy hops, faint biscuity pilsner malt
T - sweet, grain, a bit of caramel, biscuit, sourish and tart pilsner malt, earthy hop
M - thin-to-medium body, lower carbonation, finishes semi-dry and very clean
O - not a great example of a Czech style pilsner, but it's ok. I wouldn't get this again.

Clear bronze color, small lining of head around the glass, nose of malt and nuttiness, smooth and light mouthfeel with a taste of lots of grain.
