First off, this beer is alive! Not retired.
2ndly, it's better than reviews, and it's not mid-pack, it's different, decidedly perfumey, almost Belgian at first, and unexpected from Texas.
A: A steady film rides on an amber, dusty body, and leaves plenty of lace.
S: More pears, flowers, and esters than any other APA. Along with malt, caramel, mild herbal hop, bread crust, and yeast.
T: Follows smell, with the perfume more evident,but in a good way, balanced by apple pie, sun-warmed grass, the rest, and the long hop/caramel see saw finish, which works.
F: Slightly creamy, nice weight.

Floral for Texas or APA. More going on that the current crop of reviews reveals. Worth a try. All made in Shiner TX.

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.
