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

Standard pour from a 12oz bottle into a pilsner glass. Pours a clear, pale straw-yellow with a small head that quickly recedes away.

Aroma is biscuty and malt-y, with just the faintest trace of hops, very understated overall.

The flavor is just as understated- think a big American macro-brew, but done with less use of adjuncts. A trace of sweetness up front followed shortly by a crisp, dry finish. Nothing especially spectacular, but completely inoffensive at the same time. Easy to drink at just over 4 percent ABV.

Mouthfeel is fairly light, and notable for the quite high carbonation.

Not my usual sort of beer, but for what it is, it's quite serviceable- would be a good summertime thirst quencher. If you can find it Shiner Premium would be good as a slightly more upscale replacement for the standard American mega-lagers.
