Pours reddish copper in color w/delightful head. Good bitterness, aroma kind of flowery imo. Goes down very easy but watch out this is a pretty strong brew if you're used to drinking standard lager like Budweiser or Coors. I like Blue Moon and Sierra Nevada pale ales and this one is on par with those brews. Anything from Shiner is good

Seeing I don't have have a palate destroying hop bomb to know when there's a good beer, I was excited to see Shiner make a pale ale.

Color is copper and clear
Taste is fantastic for a Shiner. I really like this beer.

Mouthful is light like a pale ale should be.

Thank you Shiner!

This is one of the best beers I've had from Spoetzl.

Pour a clear medium amber with a big white head.

Aroma is very malty with a little bit of hops.

Flavor is nice. Very well-balanced. Feels like more of an English style Pale Ale to me. More hops than most beers from this brewery but less than many other Pale Ales. Some nuttyness, some herbal/floral notes. Nice use of hops. Very present without dominating the flavor. Nice lingering malty aftertaste. Just the right amount of sweetness without being cloying.

Medium smooth mouthfeel.

I like this beer a lot. I am very impressed.

This was a strange one. Shiner Wild Hare Pale Ale has a thick, frothy, off-white head, a clear, somewhat bubbly, amber appearance, and nice lacing rings left on the glass. The aroma is, oddly, of coriander and banana, and the flavor is the same, with bread, sweetness, grapefruit, and bitter hop notes as well. It’s almost as if a heffe-weizen had been poured into the bottles by mistake. The mouthfeel is light, and Shiner Wild Hare Pale Ale finishes crisp, snappy, and refreshing- almost lager like. Even with all the strangeness, it’s a very interesting beer and maybe the best that Shiner has on the market. I rate it excellent and would advise beer lovers to check it out.
