look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.25

Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a shaker pint.

A: Clear straw yellow to light amber. Full finger and a half head that sticks around for a good while.
S: Citrus. Wheat. Sour bread. Lemon overtones.
T: Light citrus turns into a bready sort of sour. None of the sourness and spice I was expecting. This beer is an example of what it is not more than what it is. The taste may be more suited for a French Jelly Glass.
M: Carbonation is low for me. I feel as if this could enhance some of the notes in the scent... but alas... they are absent. Def. on the low end of "medium bodied."
O: This beer would be a great house beer for a session after a long hard day. It is crisp, tasteless, and refreshing. I expected so much more from Shiner. Not a "must try," but like all beer, it is worth a taste.
