The eyes of Texas are upon us.

I've been told by locals this is regular old Shiner with an updated look. Whether that's true or not it makes sense. Light color, medium flavor AAL with no noticeable flaws and a crisp finish. Not bad overall, good match with barbecue.

Pop a cool one and fill the plate with brisket.

Premium lager, my ass. This is a pale lager through and through. Pale golden in color with small foamy head . Light cereal, corn aroma. taste is also weak, although mouthfeel is fairly slick and has some body. No lingering aftertaste. Macro lager all the way.

The color is blah yellow, but the full inch of head on it is impressive, even if it fades away quicker than Paris Hilton. Grass and corn in the aroma.

Taste was non descript, a few more canned cooked veggies come to mind. Corny. Hardly any hopping or bitterness. Crisp I guess. I wouldn't pay $1 a beer for this when there's a bunch of $7/12pack stuff that is just as good or even better than what it brings to the table.

I got this one as a gift from a family member. They knew I liked Shiner, so they assumed any Shiner would do, I suppose. I'm not a blonde beer guy. This one was okay, but not spectacular. It had decent flavor and wasn't too light. It went down more or less smoothly, but the aftertaste wasn't as rich as I like. I would drink it again, but I'd never purchase it on my own. One of the few Shiner beers I don't much care for.

-Cloudy yellow
-Fruit (unkown which one), grains, maybe corn?
-A fruity beery type thing at first, grainy
-Creamy (was on tap) smooth

-on tap. It was sweet but not sickly. It was ok. Not amazing.
-Go for it if you are trying to like beer for the first time in general or like sweet beers only.
