It pours a clear medium amber with a white sudsy head and possesses mild notes of grain malts, floral hops, caramel and a stale cardboard odor. This brew is a little lighter than I expected, it has a very mild hoppiness and a light caramel sweetness and not much else. Really nothing special here... www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews

Great color and very refreshing taste. Not much of a smell but very light and good drinkable! Bottle has a nice design too.

Pours amber, leaves a one inch off-white head that recedes fairly slowly. Leaves plenty of lacing on the sides of the glass.

Smells pretty good actually, hoppy grapefruit, tropical notes, with some butter.

Taste is very disappointing after the scent. Minor tropical fruit notes, malty middle, biscuit, has some fruity chemical off flavors that come up for the finish and aftertaste. Almost like flavored cough syrup, not very pleasant.

Medium bodied, medium carbonation, is mostly smooth.

If it didn't have the off flavor in the finish this would be quite a good brew indeed.

Very mild. But very good pale ale. Not super hoppy or super malty. Very well made beer.

Very boring beer. Not very hoppy or flavorful. Would buy these for a large gathering if you're having a lot of people for a BBQ or want a decent beer that's not a light beer

Pours a dark clear golden color with average head and damn nice clingy lacing. Aroma is light with touches of malt and some citrusy hops. Flavor is similar to aroma, this beer is very light and subdued. The maltiness seems to be more of the hero here, but some of the hops and a small amount of citrus do come out. This was not what I expected from a pale ale, but not too bad...

2/7 - Home (Bottle) - Decent Shiner offering. Somewhat strong, but a bit bland for an Pale Ale. Better than their standard offerings, and would have again if given the chance.

Had on tap at Texas BBQ Northboro.

Nice creamy head, clear amber amber reddish copper orange.

Nose decent hops, floral grassy mild fruity, little copper amber malts, touch of honey malt.

Taste mild sweet malt, candy caramel, etc. Mild hop profile, floral grassy, fair bitterness and generic fruity flavor. Little candy caramel thing. Lingering icky bitterness and general candy malt.

Mouth is med bod, decent carb.

Overall OK, but nothing special, decent malts, decent hops, a little icky bitterness, probably a meh hop added to some decent ones.

Pours orange/amber and clear with an almost khaki head of foam. Clear. Nose is caramel and a herbal hops. Cracker malt with a bit of richness. Drinks citrusy, light tangerine, a bit piney and tangy. Crisp. Light body medium carbonation. Not really dry finish.
