12oz bottle. Filtered orange-copper color. Very smooth and drinkable with a malty sweetness. Very minimal hop presence. Quite enjoyable session beer.

bhensonb (13224) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 5, 2008
Light caramel aroma. Coppery amber color with a white head that rapidly flattened. Medium body with light, fizzy carbonation. Flavor is light caramel with some citrus/fruit hop. The finish is clean, and lightly bitter. Very drinkable.

thedm (5281) - Fort Wayne, USA - FEB 1, 2008
This bottled brew from JSquire at a rating party poured a small sized head of foamy fine to large sized white colored bubbles that were and left behind a transparent softly carbonated golden brown colored body and a poor lacing. The aroma was musty and malt hop. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of malt and hops. An OK brew just nothing special.

DukeBrewDevil (732) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JAN 30, 2008
Bottle. Clear golden color, not much head. Smells like honey and straw, although mostly like nothing. There’s some malt character to this stuff, but mostly it tastes like a more flavorful standard American lager. I’m not sure how much it costs, but it’s a perfectly fine session beer and most non-craft beer drinkers would like it ok. Goes down smooth without totally tasting like water.

daniellerose7 (119) - new york, New York, USA - JAN 28, 2008
Another mediocre/disappointing Shiner beer... not a very spectacular pour, and there is this very strange almost latex taste to it. Yuck. It is a sin to call this even Bavarian style.

A good addition to the Shiner collection here. Golden honey pour with a good unique taste.

thehinge (290) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JAN 23, 2008
Grassy aroma. Honey colored pour. Nothing special going on tastewise. Slightly sour malts on the front end. Just a hint of hops in the finish.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 19, 2008
Bottle courtesy of soonah. Pours copper with a white head. Smells maly and vegetal with some tea like qualities. Tastes of sweet malt with touches of pepper and spice. Average.

Pretty much like the others say: not that bad, but kinda dull.
Too much to add, too little to say :)

12oz bottle; Aroma of bread and some fruit in the mix. Gold body with big white head. Flavor was alright mosly bitter hop but the fruit would show up now and then. Good brew could drink this while playing cards at family getogethers.
