A: nearly no head on a clear shiny golden body.

S: breads, biscuit and pale malts. some burnt toast malts.

T: lots of toasted malts, syrupy and wheat. A touch yeasty. Overall though very malty, almost as malty as a bock should be yet this is a "wheat"

M: light to medium body and moderate to high carbonation.

Overall: This one varies quite a bot from the others I have had in the genre. as far as bready and biscuit notes, few beers capture that the way this one does. So its memorable in that regard but wont be a repeat try for me.

Pours a clear golden, with a thin white head. Smells slightly like malt extract. Taste is some sweet wheatyness up front, a little bit of cracker in the middle, and a hint of minty, earthy hops in the finish. Rather bland IMO. Mouthfeel is rich though, low carbonation. Overall an average beer. Not many flavors, and a "safe" beer for sure. Still I would drink it again, but probably not purchase it myself.

On Tap at Taco Mac Metropolis January 24, 2012. 16 Ounce Pour.

(Appearance) pours a very light gold with a light froth head of a near white tone. Light lacing left behind. Very light carbonation. Pretty dull appearance. 2.5

(Smell) very mild wheat malts with a touch of honey. A mild aroma in general, not very potent at all. A touch metallic, Underwhelming. 2

(Taste) A bold sweet wheat introduction with a mild honey finish. Pretty one dimensional but mildly enjoyable beer. 3.5

(Mouthfeel) very slick texture. Light body, not too watery or thin. Well-concealed alcohol content. Nice pairing if too mild in carbonation. 3

(Overall) Appearance and aroma aside, this is a pretty good Shiner pick, an average craft quality, but highly sessionable. 3
