2.2/5  rDev -28.3%
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".

Can't say I ever seen this beer so I totally picked it up when I found it at my local house of 1,000 dollar shelf. Into a mug.
A - First off twist off love it in a pinch. Secondly is this a light lager? It's so light yellow! The head is pretty nice it takes a while to fizz out. Pretty ok.
S - Distinct house yeast, canned corn, and some skunky husk.
T - It's decent for a lager sweet corn goodness, light toasted husk, and a bit of lager yeast twang.
M - It's much fuller than I expected for a light lager still crisp and light.

Overall It's a good lager much tastier than the typical Stegmeier I pick up. If I see it again for a buck I will try and score a six pack.

Had this as part of Shiner variety pack. Could be the most bland beer I have ever had. Nothing bad to really say, nothing off putting. It seems like all Shiner beers have the same appearance with different colors. And none seem to have anything going for the nose. This one has nohing wrong with it, very easy to drink. But it also does not really have anything good about it. Basically, meh, easy drinking but, again, meh.
