3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pale, clear gold with a faint grassy aroma and no head, lots of bubbles. Very simple, clean traditional lager - faint hoppy taste, smooth and a bit dry. Refreshing with a nice effervescence. Not remarkable which is maybe why it gets so many poor ratings, but I think it’s a good example of a basic lager. I’m also partial to Shiner since I used to throw back a lot of them at the local icehouse in Houston after work. :)

Very light golden color. Tall white head that completely vanished quickly. Crisp, clean, bland and boring.

I don’t know why I’m drinking this at a craft beer festival. Getting to the dregs of the festival - lost in the ghetto wing. Tap at DC Beer festival.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured this beer producing a robust foamy head the quickly subsided with little remnant. A light pale, clear appearance. Vaguely fruity, but not unpleasant aroma. Mouthfeel is decent, if not memorable. Very light taste ... equally unmemorable. Not a bad beer, but nothing distinguished to share with others.
