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.
