amber into my glass capped by minimal head. Slightly bread and doughy, grass and flower. A bit chewy in the mouth.

Pours dark, white lacy head. Nice malty aroma. Taste is nutty, slightly bitter, malt, less appealing than the aroma.

Silvan7 (886) - Samarate, ITALY - AUG 25, 2015
Bottle @ home. ramata, limpida con schiuma beige fine non persistente. aroma caramellato, lieve maltato, note erbacee nel finale. abboccato, gusto di chinotto, caramello, mediamente amara, più dello stile. poco calda, poco corposa, non molto carbonata, quasi appiccicosa. non molto in stile

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2015 (Tap) Es hat eine rotbraune Farbe, ist klar filtriert mit einer bräunlichen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist sehr leicht, nach Malzbier, Karamell, dark fruits und etwas röstig. Der Geschmack hat was von Honig etwas DMS und Pappe.

12 oz. bottle at Wayne’s World Bar and Grill. Pours golden with a good head. Medium sweetness and light bitterness. One of my favorite Shiner’s.

12 ounce bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours crystal clear reddish brown color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas and caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, toast, biscuit, light nuttiness, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of dark/bready malt and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, toast, biscuit, light nuttiness, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, brown sugar, toast, biscuit, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Good balance and solid robustness of dark/bready malt and earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Moderate dryness on the finish; and very clean lager flavors, with zero yeast ester notes present. Medium carbonation and light bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and watery mouthfeel that is okay. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.4%. Overall this was an okay vienna lager style. All around good balance and solid robustness of dark/bready malt and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A decently enjoyable offering.

This is probably one of the more disgusting beers that is out there. Looks like black tar-water and tastes like someone took an old chocolate candy bar and burned it in the oven then sprinkled it with coffee grinds and cigarette ashes to top it off. Why anyone would drink this crap is beyond comprehension.

Taste hints of hay, toffee and some malt. A decent brew. It’s a light beer that you can drink plenty of during dinner or a get together.

Thank you Ron, from the outdoor refrig (in ILL??) Tasty enough - some caramel-ish, some toffee. A touch of lemon. Would not have said a vienna. 11.4
