Simple things aren’t necessarily easy. In fact, when it comes to brewing, it’s tough to brew great beer with just a few ingredients. But fear not, at the little brewery in SHiner we know a thing or two about refining even the most challenging of old-world recipes. This Czech-style Pilsner is brewed with barley, hops, water, yeast and 101 years of brewing experience. Here’s to sticking to your roots and keeping things simple, PROSIT!

PorterPounder (6900) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 18, 2015
Tallahassee, Fl. ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - Betton. Slight murkiness to the medium golden pour, thin snow white head. Wort-like aroma, with some grainy notes. Bready flavor with some yeasty notes, a touch of honey sweetness, a touch of spent grain. Clean even mouthfeel. Good example of the style.

czar (6944) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 12, 2015
pours almost clear bright gold with a small creamy white cap, some retention and lacing. biscuity and dusty pale maltiness - pils indeed; woodsy and grassy, faint fruitiness - dusty white grapes, spicy honey, clean yeast, iron traces. light carbonation, light body - slightly watery, dry but a bit bland woodsy-spicy-herbal finish. more than decent macro pils anyhow.

CousinBrenden (128) - St Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 21, 2015
Poured light orange and perfectly clear. Some banana and spice. More just a light lager with some of the malt and fermentation character of a Czech Pilsner.

a little too sweet, malty and prickly for my tastes. I do like the slight grassy hop bite in this beer. otherwise it would be crap.

Golden red, clear, low carbonation, thick head. Aroma that is slightly peppery, herbal, sweet grass. Mouthfeel is moderate, dry, somewhat sticky, grainy. Tastes a bit sweet, clean, toast, malt, breadcrust. German hops. Quite good.

KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - MAR 7, 2015
Pours a clear medium brownish amber with a white fizzy head and has hints of grain malts, herbal hops, a touch of an adjunct and a moderte wet cardboard odor. This is a somewhat malty, grainy brew with a light bitter finish. Its smooth and easy drinkability, refreshing aftertaste and low ABV would make it a great lawn mowing brew... www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews

2/13/15 - Bottle - Good Shiner offering, my favorite from this brewer to date. Light, crisp beer has a good taste, hops were noticeable but not very strong, taste was good and had character compared to other shiner offerings. Nice light offering, and would definitely order again.

I thoroughly enjoyed this authentic rendition of a Czech pils from Shiner, I think almost as much as Shiner's flagship amberbock. Pours a bronzed amber appearance with white head and lacing, smells deliciously of toasty Munich malt and noble hops. Lots of malty complexity in the taste, not quite any caramel malt sweetness until the finish. Moderately bitter hoppiness, some mild grassy accent, classic saaz hops. Perhaps some citrusy spiciness. Medium bodied, smooth on the palate. Not awe-inspiring but supplies an all-around positive experience. Paired well with some lobster and butter sauce, had a nice palate cleansing but not excessive bitterness. Strongly recommended.
