2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Clean amber pour with foamy white head. Aroma is very minimal, maybe white bread. Taste up front isn’t bad, a bit of caramel that quickly dissipates into a watery finish. Not much character, but serviceable lawnmower beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Basically a Shiner Bock with more bitterness, but one can discern a variety of subtle hop flavors as well. Pleasant smell with some sweet hoppiness, copper color with great lacing. Mild, balanced, and drinkable taste. Maybe just a bit thin on the palate, but a good balanced flavor. It would be nice if they sold this in six packs, but I've only found it in the shiner "family reunion" mixed packs. Recommended.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Discusting. Tastes like someone farted on some dirt, then mixed it in with the beer. And somehow has a metallic aftertaste

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A golden body with a white head that had nice retention and good lace. Aroma had a generically sweet malty profile upfront. Some bread notes and a little bit of hops. Flavor had a nice subtle sweetness upfront. The bread note was a little more prevalent than in the aroma. A slight bitterness from the hops. A nice and smooth flavor that was certainly a surprise. Easy to drink.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear golden color, excellent head, but you can tell it’s thin and slushy.
It says that it’s dry hopped, but you can’t tell from the aroma. It’s classic macrocrap aroma.
The flavor is a little sweet, with touches of bready malts, It is better that most macro-lagers, but that’s perhaps damning it with faint praise. Equal parts English- and German-lager.
The feel is actually not bad, a little buttery and with a medium body. It’s a fine change-of-pace beer, but you might as well aim a little higher.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Looks like a regular macro, maybe a slightly deeper color. Smells metallic and neutral. Taste is not bad. A little bitter, carbonated. Just OK

Fairly bland taste and a musty smell. Medium golden body with small silky head. Not much here to write about.
