A - dark orangish amber with a thick, soft cap of somewhat loose head that fades after 30 seconds
S - caramel malt, some bread, batter sweetness, some citrus
T - citrus, caramel malt, faint sweetness, hints of batter, alcohol
M - medium bodied, well carbonated
This is quite a nice APA from the Shiner brand. It may not be an intensely hoppy APA that everyone loves to rave about, but this is a solid, highly drinkable, flavorful, balanced beer that has just enough hop character to keep you interested and a solid malt backbone. This is a beer I could definitely knock back.

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.

Pours a dark golden amber with an lasting off white head, some moderate lacing. Aroma and Taste of caramel malt, some fruity notes and light floral hops. A medium body with moderate carbonation on the palate. Finishes with caramel malt, yeasty, light floral hops with a bit of a nutty ending. Overall an good session brew for late summer.

12 oz. single from a store.
App- Cloudy rusted orange/reddish. Poured aggressive, got a two finger head that retains about a half finger throughout.
Sml- A lot of citrus hop notes. Hop oil/pine as well. Tried as I might, I couldn't pick up any malt smell, which is common for APAs.
Tst- Got that sharp cut from the citrusy hops. Alcohol. Hop oil comes through. And finally, the malts are showing. Just a slight, bready warm malt flavor that peeks out every once in a while.
Mf- It's unfiltered, and you can feel it. It's a light medium body.
Not a bad APA, however, I haven't had many, and my rating may change as I find better ones out there. I did enjoy this, and Shiner was surprisingly unafraid to let their hop characteristics shine through strong here.
