Appearance: Hazy toned copper body adorned by a massive, sense, off-white head, which retains well. Belgian-style lacing adorns the glass walls. Clouds of small carbonation drift lazily to the surface.
Aroma: Prominent toasted malt, caramel, and grassy and citric hops. The aroma seems quite well-balanced.
Taste: Opens with toasted malts, soon followed by caramel, and a mild wave of herbal and grassy hops. The hop and malt flavors compliment each other nicely throughout the taste. The hops offer a mild herbal flourish at the end of the taste.
Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, quite pleasant.
Drinkability/notes: A very pleasing, well-balanced example. Although the label notes "103", denoting that this is a one-year production produced three years after Shiner's centennial, it seems worthy of being added to the permanent offerings.
Presentation: Packaged in a twelve-ounce brown glass bottle with a twist-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.
Sourcing: Purchased at HEB in Texas in July of 2013 for $6.99/six-pack plus tax.
Serving type: bottle

Pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a decent sized but short lived off white head. Aromas of bread and light caramel maltiness with hints of fruit and earthy hops. The flavor holds more earthy hop flavor than the aroma suggested backed up by a solid bready caramel malt base and lots of sugary fruitiness. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation. Decent pale ale, but kind of middle of the road. Nothing flawed, but a bit boring.
