Pours dark golden with a two-finger length white head that retains well. There are plenty of bubbles coming up the glass. Shiner is labeling this as an ale in the Dortmunder-style. The smell of malts and hops dominates. Flavors of slightly sweet malt are up front and followed by some hop bitterness to balance it out. It's light to medium bodied with plenty of carbonation. It's clean and crisp and the flavors make this very easy to drink. One could easily session this. Overall, I believe Shiner has a success here with this Dortmunder-style ale. It's not spectacular, but it's good. It has enough drinkability to make this sessionable and one could enjoy this on a warm spring day.
