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

12 oz. bottle poured into nonic
(10/11/13 born-on date; drank on 12/22/13)
L: orange with a slight haziness; tan head at least 1/4 inch; very nice collar
S: major sweetness, apricot
T: caramel malty; apricot; a bit of barley and grain
F: decent carbonation, all-around fine
O: too sweet, tastes sugared up or flavored but not to the point of undrinkability; definitely a gateway beer at best, for there's more sweet here than anything and next to no hop presence; almost more of a bad imitation of an English pale than anything like an American pale
