Bottle. Slightly sour corn malt aroma. Medium amber with large head. Sweet corn syrup and toasted malt flavor - hint of pecans. LIght hops finish. Decent beer - although not cloying, still a bit too sweet for me.

355 ml bottle. Pours a nice amber with a dense white head. Nice malty aroma. Medium to light body. Initially semi-sweet turning to a very slight hoppy finish. Decent balance. Better than average Shiner.

For starters it has a very nice aroma, and the color is exactly what Iím looking for in an amber. Complex taste, as well, a hint of blonde behind the spices.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This brew is very light amber in color with a fizzy, foamy head when poured. The aroma is malty, light, with a bit of hops. The taste is sweeter than I expected, and more hoppy as well with some malty notes. Initially, I liked this one quite a bit. However, after one bottle it seemed to become thinner and more watery. Iím sure it was just me, but I didnít enjoy it as much after the first. The finish was pretty typical Shiner, but more dry than the Bock. I liked it, but I doubt I buy it again. If I buy any Shiner brew it will be Bock.

may be the best thing to come from shiner. just some basic malt and hops notes. metallic. leaves you thirsty. feels like not much alcohol.

I enjoyed this one also, I wish they would keep this one in the lineup. It had a great flavor from start to finish. It went excellent with the steaks I grilled. It has a tad more flavor than the others, but in a good way. There are hints of caramel and the hops really do fit in nicely in this beer.
