12oz brown bottle with a twist-off cap. Very vintage looking label. Poured into a Blackwater Draw Brewing Company Texas Independence Day 2014 Mason Jar Glass.
Appearance: Pours a clear, pale yellow color. 1 finger of head that recedes quickly. Minimal to no lacing
Smell: Faint biscuit and pale malts
Taste: Similar to the aroma with a stronger biscuit note and a slight hop bitter in the finish
Mouthfeel: Very carbonated and on point for american style lagers
Overall: Nothing too fancy, I always really liked shiner blonde and I love the rebranding with the old-school packaging. Great easy-drinking pale american lager. The only issue I have is when it tries to be more fancy than it is such as price. But if it is at the same price point as the other macro beers where ever you may be, then this wins.

A solidly decent lager. Nothing particularly outstanding to write home about, but definitely a good option compared with many of its American counterparts. It has a crisp and clean mouthfeel. Great clarity. It's well balanced, but doesn't end up tasting like much of anything particular.

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.
