On-tap 6/29/2014 at Doherty’s East Ave Irish Pub, in Pawtucket, RI served in a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep golden brown color, with a short off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is faint but contains caramelized malts, some citrus and some hops.

T: The taste starts out bready with a hearty but not too heavy malt character up front. Then a decent hops bitterness comes in along with some mildly sweet flavors of caramel and citrus bringing some balance. The after-taste is slightly bready.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

O: A little tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, mild kick, decent representation of style, it’s an ok beer overall but there are several other choices in the style that are better.

Pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a decent sized but short lived off white head. Aromas of bread and light caramel maltiness with hints of fruit and earthy hops. The flavor holds more earthy hop flavor than the aroma suggested backed up by a solid bready caramel malt base and lots of sugary fruitiness. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation. Decent pale ale, but kind of middle of the road. Nothing flawed, but a bit boring.

My favorite of the Shiner series recently released in CT. Nice hazy yellow color. The smell had a lot of hop to it and the taste was similar with a lot of pine notes and a very clean finish. The mouthfeel was a little thick for a pale ale, but overall it was a decent beer.
