2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I usually enjoy Shiner beers (especially bock), but this one fell a bit short of my expectations. Spicy aftertaste, somewhat wattery, overall not very enoyable.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
One stange tasting brew. I have yet to find a person that wants another after their first. Has a strange spiciness, highly carbonated, some malt flavor. Not at all what I was expecting, but it is great for pouring over brats.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark gold body with a medium khaki head. The aroma is grainy with some cornmeal and green beans. The taste has some nice notes of iced tea and old toffee. There is sharp carbonation that distracts from the brew. A lightly spicy finish with some bell peppers and black pepper hints. Decent.

12oz. Bottle: Clean, clear amber body w/ a fluffy white head that leaves minimal lacing behind as it dissipates. Aroma is malts, caramel & a slight bit of hops. Flavor is much like the aroma: Caramel & a bit of hops. Pretty thin in the mouth. Not great, but not terrible either...pretty average.

Pours a very clear medium amber with a tall white head that fades quickly. Week aroma of fruits and a little hops. Tastes like watery caramel with a little fruit and spices. Not bad. Better then most other shiners.
