Nice balance of hop bitterness and caramel sweetness, malt heaviness and fine effervescence. Not quite crafty, but personality than typical high volume beer. Quite sessionable. I'll have it again.

Pours a amber color with more malty smell with a hint of the hops in it. The taste is a nice malty flavor with a suttle bite of hops. The mouthful is medium and resfresing. Overall a nice offering from Shiner with a malt lover in mind.

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.
