I had this one from the mixed Shiner 12 pack. Poured into my SA perfect pint, the beer is a darker shade of gold with a decent off-white head.

It has a fresh aroma of grass, malts and some floral hops.

I liked the taste of this one. It is a touch grainy with a hit of caramel. It has a lightly sweet cracker taste with a bit of mild hop bite.

The mouth is decent and the beer would be easy to pair with all but the spiciest food.

I would keep this in my beer fridge if they sold it in 12 packs. I could rotate it with Schlitz and Old Style when I’m looking for a good, simple & decent beer.

Pours a clear dark gold with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, grass, and slight metallic aromas. Taste is much the same with grain and grassy flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is easy to drink but nothing too memorable in my opinion.
