look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
Appearance: Clear medium amber in color, with a large, persistent and coarse off-white head. Streams of miniscule bubbles drift lazily to the surface. The lacing is thin and scattered.
Aroma: Ginger and grapefruit rind dominate the aroma. Thankfully, the aroma is more spicy than sweet, avoiding disturbing comparisons to "malternatives". There is a moderate pale malt note as well.
Taste: Citrus and ginger flavors dominate from start to finish, but, thankfully, without any syrupy sweetness. Clean malt notes are present as well, but in a supporting role. The taste finishes with a mild, lingering grapefruit rind note.
Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, and pleasant.
Drinkability/notes: Its different, but not at all bad. Served very cold, it is actually quite refreshing on a hot Texas summer day. Cheers to Shiner for something out of the ordinary.
Presentation: Packaged n a twelve-ounce brown glass longneck bottle with a twist-off crown, served in a standard Pilsenerr glass.
Serving type: bottle
