A very pretty looking beer when poured. It hits the spot on a hot Texas day, but otherwise it’s nothing remarkable.

Bottle. Pours yellow with a thin white head that dissipates. Medium carbonation and balanced malt aroma. It's fine but nothing special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a golden yellow with a white head. No nose. Palate is not as sweet as Bud with more body. A better example of the American lager than the bigg guys.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. The pour is a carbonated pale yellow under a big, foamy white head. The aroma smells like an adjunct with grains, barley malt, clean hops, and maybe a little corn. The body is light. The taste tends to become more sweet and malted but the intent seems to be to emulate American Adjuncts.

Transfer from BA review on 10-19-12- Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance –Pours a clear straw color with a tiny white head that fades almost instantaneously to give no lacing. Smell – The aroma is mainly of a biscuit nature with a light citrus smell. Along with these aromas are some notes of a paper smell. Taste – The taste is fairly one-dimensional. It starts out of sweeter caramel with some sweet corn and a lighter bready taste. These flavors persist throughout the taste with very little change; leaving the same flavors that starts out the taste to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is very light and the carbonation level is rather average. The lighter body and the carbonation are good for the style and do make for a quite easy drinking brew. Overall – Quite simple and easy drinking. If looking for a session brew or when looking for something very simple, then this will work just fine.

12oz into a pint. Ok blonde, gold ale, whatever it is. Pours a pee yellow with background sunshine. No head or lacing, hmmm? Taste is grainy, corn, flat malts, like a pbr pretty much, but with a different name. Aroma is fizzly brew beer for mass consumption. Not terrible but def not good. It came in the variety pack so I have to drink two.

Saving the worst for last (out of the mixed-sixer). Labelled as "Shiner Premium Beer". A light piss yellow lager. Very bland and thin. Not to hate on yellow lagers for the sake of hating on yellow lagers, but this is quite dreadful.

Hold on to your hats folks. There is a story behind this one. My wife, you know the one that brings me beer from her travels went to Ithaca NY, and brought me back a mixed 6er of Texas beers. Its the thought that counts...... This beer rating is also brought to you by UDBeernut’s subliminal hypnosis. He made me do it! This is fantastic in the heat. A medium to light body with some tin and thinner grains. Finishes clean and bright. Not much nose, or body for that matter... but its a nice quencher in the muggy heat. Groove.
