COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Here at the little brewery in Shiner, we’re happy to serve up our latest anniversary brew, Shiner 102. With a special recipe that sits between a bright wheat beer and wheat wine ale, this smooth, filtered, double wheat ale pours a pale straw color with hints of sweetness. And the aromatic Czech Saaz and Washington Golding Hops and the crisp character of malted wheat are sure to refresh your senses. Prosit!

From notes: Poured fizzy, clear straw color, with a 1-finger white head. Sweet lemon or orange citrus aroma, mixed with some yeast funk. Light, but a bit thin. Flavors were very light. Sweet note, maybe caramel, with a slight orangey note and some biscuity yeast in the finish.

ben4321 (4026) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 9, 2012
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 3/9/12

Aroma: The nose has wheat, bread, lemon, spice, caramel, and a bit of corn
Appearance: It pours a clear golden-orange color with a small white lead and light lace
Flavor: The taste is a little sweet, lots of wheat and some light malts and fruit flavors too
Palate: It is fairly light, and a touch watery, it has a rather soft carbonation, and a sticky/sugary finish
Overall Impression: I thought this beer was kind of dull. It isn’t terrible, but its flawed and unexciting. It also feels kind of unrefined. There’s something here that doesn’t work for me.

Nightsky (176) - Lutz, Florida, USA - FEB 9, 2012
The Shiner had a yeasty smell and a light sweet taste, not bitter or and slightly sour. Golden and clear in color. Average carbonation and abrupt finish. Not fantastic, pretty ordinary.

Light aroma and almost no head. Nice palate, very frothy and refreshing. Light taste, almost no qualities make this beer stand out. The appearance was great, a golden hue, but lacking otherwise.

LiteWait (267) - New Hampshire, USA - JAN 24, 2012
Purchased a 6 pack in Orlando Florida. Very disappointed after reading the label and tasting this brew. Color was like apple juice, no head, lots of carbonation like ginger ale, and taste all malt. Hardly any wheat more ginger... ginger ale that is than wheat.. Leaves mouth dry. Never waste your money on a 6 pack. Not worth it.

frpilz (111) - Illinois, USA - JAN 21, 2012
Best part of this beer was the aroma, after that I was a little disspaointed. Mediocre taste and head and appearence. Slight hop overtones were not a compliment but a distraction from the malty taste. Not the worst beer by any means, but wouldnt buy again.

ilovedarkbeer (2300) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 9, 2012
Pours a hazy golden color with a medium sized foamy white head. Notes of clover, alcohol, wheat germ, and honey. Kind of gross.

jake65 (2676) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 6, 2012
Bottle: Pale golden pour with lots of bubbles and a small white head. Grassey, crisp, and malty come to mind after a few sniffs. Moderately hopped for a wheat ale; grassey, floral, bready, and wheat flavors fit in like they belong here. Ok.

12 oz. bottle. This beer pours clear and straw yellow, with a loose, medium-sized off-white head that settled quickly, leaving almost no lacing whatsoever. The aroma profile is sweet grain with a hint of honey. This beer is a malt bomb from start to finish with little flavor complexity, and nominal wheat character. This offering could use some hop balance in the finish.
