3.38/5  rDev -1.5%

Translucent golden hue, modest white head, soapy retention, almost no lace. The strength of the bouquet was minimal... lemony grass and malt with a kiss of sweetness, clean. Respectable palate with a decent blend of malt and lemon-grass/hay. Rather clean, if not boring, though with meager hops influence, malty for a Kölsch. Pleasant floral/herbal-grassy aftertaste, modest finish… medium-light body, low carbonation… easy to drink. I am sure this would work well on a hot summer day. Is this Shiner’s best product?

Excellent summer brew. Of course, Shiner is a staple where I come from and this is no exception. It has a nice sunny color. The smell was good but a little weak which isn't necesarily a bad thing, but I had to take a serveral good whiffs to actual smell it though. I especially enjoyed the slight wheat taste to it. The drinkability is truely excellent. After a long day at school, I easily poured two of them down my throat with ease. And expect the rest will be the same.

Not bad at all! Pours an ultra clear golden hue with a decent 2 finger off white head. Aromas are of an earthy tone and really quite faint. It has a slight bread and lemon taste with a little alcohol on the tail. It is light to medium bodied with a nice overall crisp mouthfeel. Not a hugely complex brew...but it is rather refreshing! One of Shiner's better brews! Cheers!

Presentation: 12 oz twist off brown long neck bottle with no freshness date to be found.

Appearance: Pale yellowish golden colour with a brilliant clarity, decent white lace that hold together quite well.

Smell: Clean grain malt aroma, very light grassy grain with a lemon and floral hint.

Taste: Big refreshing crispness, light to moderate body with an ample carbonation. Quick splash of malt sweetness and a fresh grassy grain flavour throughout. Hops come in with a spicy bite and clean the palate well, nice twang in the flavour but not overwhelming. Fresh grainy flavours stay with the taste buds far into the finish.

Notes: Easy to drink with a handful of flavour, on the label it says Kölsch but some say it is an American Blonde Ale … either way it is a brew I would want around during a hot summer day. Similar in stature to Harpoon Summer Beer.
