Bottle received in trade.
Pours a crystal clear medium golden color with a decent sized bubbly white head that quickly dissipates to wisps of foam on top. Aromas of light bready pilsner malt with a hint of either caramelized sugar or caramel flavoring and a hint of prune type fruits. Very faint aromas of earthy spicy hops round us out. The flavor is a bit sugary sweet with hints of prune or fruit. Little to no hop flavor and just enough bitterness to keep this from cloying. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation. Decent brew, but nothing to go out of your way to try like I did.

It's the shiner version of budlight only about 10X the taste and mouthfeel. This stuff is what I'll reach for next time I want to drink some cold american lager. Pours golden clear with a thick white head on top. You can smell the grains and hops in it. The taste is very good with a hint of malt. Some grains and kind of a sweet taste that I can't figure out. Well worth the money.

Real American Beer that looks, tastes and smells like, well...Real American Beer!
In 105 years the name has changed about that many times, but supposedly the recipe/formula hasn't. Shiner/Spoetzl keeps a pricing strategy in roughly 42 states at $6.99-$7.99 a six pack. Where I live it's cheaper than any crap BMC products. I like it because it's an easy drinking lager and fits well with just about an occasion. Probably my favorite pale lager beer on the market.
