It's the shiner version of budlight only about 10X the taste and mouthfeel. This stuff is what I'll reach for next time I want to drink some cold american lager. Pours golden clear with a thick white head on top. You can smell the grains and hops in it. The taste is very good with a hint of malt. Some grains and kind of a sweet taste that I can't figure out. Well worth the money.

This is not a style I normally drink or enjoy, but this particular beer wasn't bad.

Bright gold clear liquid with white head.

Grain-laden aroma.

Flavor is crisp and clean. Sweeter than most lagers but not overpoweringly so. A little bit of hops.

Mouthfeel is nice and crisp. Decent amount of carbonation.

As expected with a beer of this style, it is best drunk cold.

Overall, far superior to most macro beers or for that matter most pale lagers brewed by microbreweries.
