look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured a cloudy amber color with golden highlights when held to light and two fingers of fluffy off-white head. It's pretty good looking, though with maybe a bit too much head formation. Scents of bready malt, light fruity esters reminiscent of apple, light notes of tangerine flesh and a light level of floral and grassy hop aromas. Malty and delicate, with a low level of hop aromas and a moderate level of fruity esters overall. Far more like an English Pale Ale than an American. Flavor begins with notes of bready, biscuity malt with a touch of caramel and medium-light floral hop flavors. This moves into a slightly drier yet still lightly sweet middle with a moderate level of floral hop flavor, a touch of apple-like fruitiness and a bit of sweet malt. Finish lightly dry with moderate flavors of floral and herbal hops, a light touch of apple and a bit of orange peel. Aftertaste is dry with notes of floral and herbal hops and biscuity malt. The flavor profile is balanced and not overly hoppy, with flavors most resembling an English Pale or an older style American. Not groundbreaking, but pleasant. Mouthfeel is medium-light bodied with medium-low carbonation and a smooth feel. Nicely drinkable and true to style. Overall this is a serviceable Pale Ale. It's balanced in flavor and aroma, smooth and easy to drink. It's not the hoppiest or the most experimental American Pale around, nor is it the best simple pale ale, but it's good in its own way.

Pretty weak pale ale, not very hoppy taste at all and no real hints of citrus or anything else. Smooth-drinking but I like my IPA stronger with a heavier hoppy flavor. Typical of a Shiner beer, not bad but not great.

Nice caramel mix with pale malt. Nothing groundbreaking here. A solid, slightly above average APA that is easy to drink.

Amber color and clear. Little head and even less lace.

Mild malt aroma; a bit metallic.

Lots of caramel flavor. Very little hop. I'd say this is too sweet for a pale ale. Rich body, lowly carbonated. Short cloy aftertaste.
