From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on August 11, 2014.

Brewed from pure artesian well water the label exclaims! And it pours straw yellow with a foamy, white head that lingers. Loads of carbonation bubbles roaring up the pilsener glass I put it in.

Aroma of grains, malts, toast, rice, and corn with a clean crisp hop bite.

Light body.

There is a sweetness to the malty character in the flavor with grainy notes and a nice, clean hop bite to finish.

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.
