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
