look: 3.5 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Clear medium straw color with a thin bright white head that has very low retention.

Not much to the nose: crackers, lemon zest and a little Wonder bread.

Really pretty bland on the palate, crackers and a little toast. Really no hop feel to the beer and no bitterness.

Medium- bodied and a little watery with a short finish.

It's not offensive, but there's just nothing here. Pretty generic.

Not a fan. Would not purchase and would not likely drink if offered for free.

look: 2.25 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2.25

Appearance (2.25) : Yellow / Clear in color, very little / no head, and a discrete amount of carbonation. Not the most attractive beer, but not an ape.

Smell (2.00) : Not much of a smell, I smell a small amount of hops, but I'm having trouble placing any other smells.

Taste (2.25) : I have to say, not as bad as I expected. Sweet and a bit dark - which I know seems like a strange combination. Not a fan of the residual flavor.

Mouthfeel (2.25) : Very carbonated and bright feel, a little lackluster, but not awful.

Overall (2.25) : Not very pleased with this beer, however, it does have some qualities. It's refreshing certainly, good for very casual drinkers, just not the most "tasteful".

I like Shiner Bock original (the Bock) it's a decent beer, I even like Kosmos quiete a bit..
For me this Kölsch Brewer's pride is a real t*rd.
At the very best, this beer was like drinking Lucky Lager, Old Milwaukee, Milwaukee's Best, Mickey Bigmouth, Rainer Beer or maybe even Black Label. Heck, If I were in High School or College again and just wanted to get blitzed this would be okay, then.
However, the fact that its price is that of a premium beer, one would expect much more than this..What gives????... In my opinion, and it's mine and mine alone, I think Shiner needs to pack this one up and forget it. Seriously, I was really disappointed and I like some of Shiner's brews. This is a marketing focus opinion for free and it's brutal, but I'm being honest. All successful Companies know that you give your customer what they want and not what you think they'll like or need.

Appearance is typical pale golden lager color. Smell is also typical with a grainy sweetness. Taste reminds me of Bud Light, if perhaps slightly better. Mouthfeel is fine, good carbonation. At the very least, a drinkable beer. Not the kind I would enjoy on it's own when just sitting at home unless I was in the right mood.
