Clear golden amber with one finger of five minute white head. Some rings of lace.
Smell is mild malt and hops.
Taste is lightly toasted malts with a balancing amount of herbal hops.
Mouthfeel is light to medium with good carbonation. Finish is lightly dry and slightly bitter.
Overall a decent beer should be their regular product IMO.

This one was decent. It was probably the best one in the family 6 pack I bought for my bbq, but it was still a Shiner. They tried, but it wasn't great. Very malty.

Better than I thought it would be. Nice malt flavor and a good blend of hops. But too thin, and tastes as most lagers do.

Appearance: Clean amber, with a thin head of off-white suds and little lace.

Aroma: Malty, lagery, pretty average for style.

Taste: Malty and very much a lager in feel but there’s a significant hopping here, keeping it more interesting. Not a remarkable nor unique brew, but certainly drinkable and worthy of a session.

I buy Shiners quite often. It is inexpensive and easy drinking but perhaps not top notch craft beer.

(L) It has a fairly clear golden to amber color and a thick off white bubbly head.

(A) Malty, sweet and somewhat fruity aroma.

(T) It is malty, sweet, taste a bit like cornbread, and it is a bit tart. It is also somewhat bland but it is not as bad as the common mass produced bland lagers.

(F) It is fizzy, crisp and easy drinking, and good in the Texas heat.

average beer color, amber with a good head.
slight hop, malty sweet aroma very pleasant
taste about the same with a slight bitter bite
smooth average feel
decent beer, but I prefer less bitter, but went good with my pizza.

Poured from bottle into Tulip, 1/2 finger cream colored head recedes quickly to a pool of foam. Look is clear burnt copper, with nice carbonation. Smells of malt, caramel and earthy/grassy hops. Taste is very clean, nice malt to start then I get that grassy hop profile coming thru. A bit of a caramel finish towards the end, this finishes a tad on the sweet side, not much, but not dry. This beer should be sold in 6/12 pack formats. Great mouthfeel on this beer.
