2.45/5  rDev -20.5%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

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.

12 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. Acquired as part of the Shiner family reunion mixed twelve pack. Expectations are about average given the brewery and the genre. Simple, vintage label art, with no abv listed on the bottle anywhere.

Poured into a Miller High Life pint glass.

A - Pours your typical clear pale straw yellow colored body with lots of bubbles rushing topside. One finger of eggshell white head rises and falls within seconds. No lacing. Pretty dull and ordinary to look at, but no worse than your typical American adjunct lager.

S - Smell is of grain, corn, biscuit malts, brown bread, and buttered popcorn. Pretty bland and unappealing, in all honesty.

T - Taste follows the nose: dry grainy malt, mineral water, stale earthiness, hint of paperboard, and adjunct corn.

M - Feel is thin, clean, and watery. Miniscule grains & some metallics on the finish.

Overall, a fairly harmless, bland, and tasteless beer. Goes down like water, with a low sessionable 4.40% abv, Shiner's version of a watered down American adjunct lager, I suppose. Fairly inoffensive and drinkable, just very boring and generic. Although, I would clearly choose this over a Bud Light anyday.

Shiner Premium Beer ---3/5.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance - a clear gold color, with a light head that disappears quickly.

Smell - Sweet smell, mainly malts though.

Taste - Like the smell, sweet and malty.

Mouthfeel - Perfect amount of carbonation for an American Lager, good-bodied.

Overall - I enjoyed this beer a lot, this beer is nice and smooth.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Left about a one finger head, very "crispy" more like a soft drink head. Beer was golden and very clear with little streams of bubbles.

Nose was standard lager with some hops and a bit of honey sweetness. Flavor was also typical lager. Slightly metallic on the finish, but the mouthfeel was good for style. Very drinkable.

Would be refreshing on a hot summer day, but not complex enough for my tastes.
