Visual: First off, props to Shiner for the cool label. It just made me want to try this beer, even though I typically prefer to try the more uncommon brands of beers. This beer had a golden-yellow tint, though I don't really care too much about the color of beers because they are all different shades of yellow. So who cares as long as it tastes good (unless you're trying to sound like a beer intellectual)?

Scent: This beer has a sort of bitter, malt-like aroma, that smells just like it tastes.

Flavor: The flavor consists of too much malt flavor, and not enough hops, in my opinion. I prefer a more intense beer from the beginning, and this didn't pack that punch. It was enjoyable nonetheless, and I would drink it again if there were a lack of options.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and enjoyable. Not too much carbonation.

Overall: This beer was okay. It's not going to be a go-to beer or anything like that, but it was good. I'd much rather have a Shiner than something like Coors or Miller or anything like that. I drank this beer straight out of the glass bottle. In the end, this beer is just an average at best (or slightly above average) beer.

A: A clear amber color, with no head at the top, maybe a little off white ring at the top that left quickly, not so much lacing that I noticed.

S: Some hints of floral but nothing crazy, and slight malt notes as well.

T: Sweet and dry, some malts in there to go along with the sweetness, hints of pine and berrys.

M: Medium bodied, high carbonation, sticky.

O: Nothing great about this beer, might be why its retired, easy drinker and nothing complex about it.
