I'm a big Shiner basher, and I am a Texas resident and probably always will be. I never drink Shiner products and found a mixed 6 pack for 7 bucks. Figured I'd take a few nights off from my pricier selections and go with something different Texas brews. Lets do this.
Appearance-Brownish amber with a white 1 inch head. Little retention and little lacing remains.
Smell-Nutty and Fruity. Some sweet malts as well. Very pleasant aroma.
Taste-Sweet malts, very nutty and very fruity. Very similar to the aroma. An extremely nice Hop Bitterness balances it out. Very balanced and very impressed.
Mouthfeel-Smooth and crisp. Medium bodied with alot of carbonation. Clean finish.
Overall-First beer out of the mixed 6 and impressed. Very nice beer that is sessionable and highly drinkable.

3.76/5 rDev +3.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: Clear, deep reddish-amber body adorned with a moderate, somewhat coarse, and persistent off-white head, with scattered, Belgian-style lacing, and slight carbonation.
Aroma: Prominent toasted malt, with strong caramel and distinct fruit notes, and a somewhat spicy and smoky character.
Taste: Opens with dark caramel, toasted malt, and slightly spicy hops. As the taste progresses, strong black bread notes appear. Later in the taste, a nutty character appears, quite pleasant against the abundant caramel. Finishes with a lingering note of burnt caramel, smoky malt, and grassy hops.
Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, fairly full, pleasant.
Drinkability/notes: A pleasing, well-balanced example, which deserves to be a year-round offering.
Presentation: Packaged in a twelve-ounce brown glass bottle with a twist-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.
