1.7/5  rDev -49.3%
look: 2.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 1.5

Pours out burnt orange into a pint glass with a two finger white frothy head. Good head retention.

Scent is unmistakable lager and metallic smell of Shiner. This is an Ale, right?

Taste has those same Shiner characteristics, lager and metal. It's almost like 103 years of lager brewing has permenatly penetrated their tanks to make any beer have the same characteristics, no matter how many Golding hops they put in.

The mouthfeel is actually correct for the style, which makes me think they at least tried.

But overall this is an EPIC FAILURE

3.34/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

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.
