Real American Beer that looks, tastes and smells like, well...Real American Beer!
In 105 years the name has changed about that many times, but supposedly the recipe/formula hasn't. Shiner/Spoetzl keeps a pricing strategy in roughly 42 states at $6.99-$7.99 a six pack. Where I live it's cheaper than any crap BMC products. I like it because it's an easy drinking lager and fits well with just about an occasion. Probably my favorite pale lager beer on the market.

This is not a style I normally drink or enjoy, but this particular beer wasn't bad.
Bright gold clear liquid with white head.
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.

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.

Pours to a nice 1" head that falls to a thin ring of foam that is permanent. Lacing is minimal. Color is pale gold. Aroma leans toward malt and a bit of white grape juice. Some hops detected in nose. Flavor is clean, crisp and refreshing. Pilsner malts with a balancing noble hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is appropriate to style. This is well made and easy to drink. A good summer session lawnmower beer without all the damn spices, fruit or funky yeasts.

Can't say I ever seen this beer so I totally picked it up when I found it at my local house of 1,000 dollar shelf. Into a mug.
A - First off twist off love it in a pinch. Secondly is this a light lager? It's so light yellow! The head is pretty nice it takes a while to fizz out. Pretty ok.
S - Distinct house yeast, canned corn, and some skunky husk.
T - It's decent for a lager sweet corn goodness, light toasted husk, and a bit of lager yeast twang.
M - It's much fuller than I expected for a light lager still crisp and light.
Overall It's a good lager much tastier than the typical Stegmeier I pick up. If I see it again for a buck I will try and score a six pack.
