look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - dark amber color, with a light bubbly head that disappears fast.

Smell - Malty and hoppy, not that much character to it.

Taste - mild citrus taste, with a roasted malt aftertaste. Sweet flavor.

Mouthfeel - a bit weak-bodied for an ale.

Overall - Its a light ale, lacks any strong flavors. Which isn't always a bad thing.

I am typically quick to judge, but have learned when tasting beer to give the chosen brew a chance to grow on me - Shiner Wild Hare Pale Ale did just that. At first taste I was slightly taken back by the strong citrus and harsh hops, but in the end this beer shined as a well-balanced beer, perfect for the fall.

Family Reunion 6'er... hazy lite amber... no real head or retention.

Nose seems like a macro pale ale.. lite citrus and a heavier than wanted toasty maltiness...

Toasty malt is the big player.. Lite but balanced hops are present... Flimsy and not for the PNW!!

Just not very good.

Appearance - slight cloudiness to the peach/amber brew. A thin light tan head with good resilience.

Aroma - some caramel and citrus blend, a metallic edge.

Taste - caramel grain flavor, somewhat sweet, a little abv exhale. Dry hoppy aftertaste, not especially bitter but a nice balance. A little more bitterness on the finish.

Mouthfeel - crisp, medium-bodied, good for the style.

Overall - a good session beer. Tasty, with good balance.
