look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Deep golden color, not much head retention and leaves a fizzy surface. Smells like hops. Taste hops dominate and an overall strong flavor, more going on here than a Shiner. Sweet malty long finish. Mouth is medium body with average carbonation. Overall, the beer has good taste, 7.5% abv and is $8 bucks a six pack

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

A: This pours a clear golden body with a thin white head that quickly fades.

S: Really not much there.... There is a bit of malt and some lager yeast. Other than that its very weak.

T: There is a strong amount of malt that lingers on the palate for a long while. Still not much there..

M: This isnt too bad and goes down pretty smooth. It leaves a full feeling in the mouth and has a bit of crispness on the back of the tongue and throat.

O: This is just an average beer. Really nothing I would crazy about and not worth the 9.50 I paid.
