quite possibly the worst beer i've ever tasted. tastes like someone mixed a wine cooler with a dunkel. don't pour it in a glass. smell makes it worse. wtf is wrong with you people giving this a 3??

one of the worst things I have ever put in my mouth. I actually told the bar tender to take it back.

This old-world style brew actually pained me physically to drink. One of the few beers I've ever had to pour out.

Taste a little like peach robitussan. This was a drain pour.

There was something very off-putting in the nose and flavor of this brew, akin to sugar that's been cooked down too far past the point of caramel and into acridity, combined with what I can only describe as slightly rotten Vidalia onions. Considering the ratings and the fact that I got one bottle of this in a create-your-own six pack at a grocery chain not known for its beer selection (beers kept warm, by the way, in lieu of refrigerated), I may have been bitten by the skunk bug. But considering I don't have a high opinion of any Shiner products so far, I'm willing to forego any benefit of the doubt.

I don't want to write too much, since I have wasted enough time with this beer.

It is an average beer with what tastes like a bad Jolly Rancher dropped in it. I'm not sure if you like fruity beer, but even if you do, this is just not good. I rarely leave a beer in my fridge, they eventually get drunk, but this didn't.

I only kept one because I wanted a friend of mine to taste how bad it was. He didn't mind it that much. I guess there is no accounting for taste.
