Pours a hazy golden-yellow with a small thin white head with some lacing. Smells a bit sour, with malts, spice, and a few other flavors which were hard to figure out. The taste was ummm...pretty bad overall. Trying to figure out what was the direct cause of the dislike and has to be some strange hops. Ended up poring out the rest of the glass. Shiner brews are all over the board.

I poured this awful beer into my tumbler at 45 degrees. The beer poured a pretty golden color and poured a nice big white head. Thats all the good I can say about it. The smell was skunky and terrible. The taste was sour and terrible. I like Shiner products for the most part but this beer got a YUK in my personal beer data base. I would not buy again and Shiner should not produce it again.
