12 ounce single bottle from a Shiner Family Reunion six pack purchased at the local Harris Teeter. Pours a dingy gold color with no head. Aroma is very grassy. Taste is muted and a bit bland. Meh, nothing noteworthy about this beer. Average at best.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nothing good nor bad going on here. Simply a drinkable crisp kolsch. Would have liked a bit more hop character, but Shiner doesn’t seem to give that extra effort.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle to mug. Pours super clear straw with a big white head that fades quick. Aroma is slightly grassy and cereal like. Taste is similar to a pilsner, clean, crisp, not much hops, but bright. Finish is easy with medium carbonation. Absolutely worth the $2.35 I paid for the bomber but nothing ground breaking.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Drank from bottle. Light malt flavor,a but like stale beer the morning after but not as objectionable. Light in the mouth with moderate carbonation, grassy and glassy grains, finishes with just a bit of hops. Not a wonderful kolsch but a good light summer drinker.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I am not 100% sure I would call this a koelsch but at least it is not just some crappy blond ale. It kind of strikes me as something along the lines of an American cream ale but not as corny tasting. It’s clear orange w/ a very small foamy head. It has a mild nose that lightly grainy w/ a bit of grassy hops. It’s dry and crisp w/ a touch of malt character, crisp carbonation and a lingering bit of bitterness in the finish. I can get behind this stuff. It is not blowing my mind or anything but does well on a nice summer day.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a crystal clear deep straw color with a decent sized white head that quickly recedes. Aromas of bready pilsner with hints of sugary and fruity sweetness and a very faint floral hop scent. The flavor is mildly sweet with a honey sugary fruitiness that mixes fairly well with the doughy bready malts. Crisp spicy hop bitterness and a touch of carbonic bite balance this fairly well. Light to medium body with a moderate to high level of carbonation. Nice summer brew.
