3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear lightish gold with a thick foamy white head. Nose is dusty and a hint citrusy, with a bit of Pilsen malt and a bit of bread. Taste has a bit more of that bread tone, some dusty hay, some non-bitter orange rind, and an overall note of shiny clean mineral water. Or non-gross plastic. It’s overall okay, a bit under-estery and lacking bite. Like every other Shiner beer. But it’s good to see them try.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
2/18/2013. From bottle. Hazy straw yellow with a white head. Bready and malty aromas with light fruit, spices, hay. Very light body and watery with diluted flavors. Many better options out there.

Shiner typically puts out some watery stuff and this is not an exception. However, it does have an interesting smell and taste. A little spice and bitterness on the front end with a dry, crisp finish.

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Wonderful sweet fruit aroma. Sweet and sour taste which spot on for this style. Bready aftertaste on the palate for this pale straw colored beer. Completely makes up for the other shiner abominations I have had in the past. A little on the thin side but very drinkable probably from being filtered.

bottle - Clear yellow pour, white head, mild yeasty and grainy malt aroma. The flavor is of sweet, grainy malt, some mild bittering hops, yeast, and a slight hint of citrus. It’s light to medium bodied and on the bland side. Okay.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Rated on 3-08-2013 at Cap ’n Cork Covington Plaza, Fort Wayne, IN) This bottled beer pours a small off-white head with a short retention, transparent body, one ring of lacing, very little visible carbonation, and a yellow hue. The Aroma is malty, funky, light yeast, grassy, sweet, and spicy. The Taste is sweet, some pine hops, malty, spicy, peppery, and has a dry finish. The Palate is lightly tingly and this is a light-medium bodied beer. This beer is quaffable, but the flavor did not set the world on fire enough for me to want to drink this beer again.

Bottle. Just okay, a bit if an off taste may be sour, lighter body, thin head. Not one to pick again.
