12 oz bottle. Poured a clear amber with a thin white head. Taste of caramel, slight roast and bready with a subtle hoppy bitter finish. Lively carbonation, medium body

Originally rated on 6/2/08. A mild offering from shiner. It isnt daring by any stretch but a well rounded, balanced beer. A little light on flavor, some malts, unoffensive, ok.

Shiners Bavarian style ale does not do it for me. Common taste for a common beer. You can do better than this one.

Amber pour with a sweet aroma. The flavor is also ver sweet with a wet finish. Some yeast, and light malts. Not too malty.

A nice amber lager from Shiner, pours an excellent clean amber color with lots of white lacing and foam, very classic look. Aroma is a subdued caramel maltiness, reminds me of a weaker version of a Brooklyn lager or original Shiner Bock. Taste likewise is a couple layers of caramel malt and grain notes, pleasant and not too sophisticated. Finishes clean, light-to-medium bodied. Decent flavor but a bit thin.

A throwback to my pre-ratebeer days. Can’t say I’ve been missing this one in the intervening years. Deep amber with lightly sweet and bitter notes.

Aroma is caramel malts and honey/butterscotch. The flavor is similar to the aroma, with a mild bitterness/slight tartness in the finish.

12 oz refridgerted pour into a Spiegelau IPA glass (for the hell of it). Aggressive pour produced a thin white half-finger head. Fades quickly. Clear as day, mild carbonation. Nose is sweet corn and a little malt. Body a thin, though not as thin as I expected. Crisp. Taste is alright. A little malt, a bit of bitterness, a little corny sweetness. Maybe some hay? Fine for this price point, but not something I’d pay for. Probably wouldn’t turn it down, I think.

Draft at Capone’s. pours nice pale amber with some head. Nose is fruity ketones and aldehydes, first sip is similar. finish is plesant with mild bitterness.

Pours an amber/orange and clear with a thin white head. Fairly carbonated. Pretty. Smells kinda weak. Sweet and Malty. No Hops. Feels a little thin and light. Nicely carbonated. Tasts malty up front with a decent hoppiness on the finish. There is a little bit of a nasty adjunct aftertaste. Fairly easy to drink except for the adjunct aftertaste. I have had about 5 Shiner products at this is probably the best, but for me that’s not saying alot. I was even born and bred in Texas, but I just don’t like Shiner products that much. Out here they love Shiner. I think that they run it through the pipes in some cities instead of water! Anyway, I would choose ths one over thier "Bock" any day.
