2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Poured a clear amber color with a large frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate sweet malt, small hop and lager aroma. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Worth having once.

Bottle. Pours gold with a fluffy white head. Sweet and a bit grainy aroma. The flavor is relatively clean with a light sweetness and a hint of grain. Not bad.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Copper colored with a small white head that to its credit laces nicely down the glass, the beer is not visibly carbonated. A floral aroma with orange and vanilla with spice. The taste is mostly a cereal wheat with sweet mandarin and honey flavors. Its an ale that lacks a notable hops taste but ha enough to counteract the sweet citrus beginning. The palate is a tad thick and bloating for such a sweet ale. In summation I am glad they "reserve" this beer and release more of the preferable Shiner Bock to us consumers.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(bottle) A bubbling clear orange body with a big off-white head. Pale caramel malt and moderate hop aroma, grain, fruit notes (apple, orange) and light grass. Flavor, like the body, is thin. Up front there is some caramel malt as well as hops and some spice, but it quickly fades to a mostly tasteless(watery), dry finish.

Bottle from "Family Reunion" six pack.Golden blonde pour into thin white foamy head that quickly dissipates into melting lacing and a pool of swirling foam as carbonated bubbles rise from the bottom of the glass. Aroma of malty grain and yeasty biscuit. Initial flavor of malty straw that slowly fades into a grassy finish.

bottle from the "family" sixer, pours light gold with a medium white head. Aroma is pale grain and corn. Flavor is crisp pale malts, some corn and a nice finish of peppery hops. Seems like a nice light pils to me.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
OK, I normally rate beers in a standard way...aroma, mouthfeel, flavor, finish and overall impression. I’m not doing it this time because I’m drinking this beer and reading the label... flavorful and hop-jacked? WTF? Don’t lie to me! This beer is weak, watery and has an aftertaste of corn and funk.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden amber with a very small amount of fizzy white head. The use of the phrase "hop-jacked" in the brewer’s description makes me wonder if anyone at Shiner has ever really had a hoppy beer. Half asses as most of their brews - lots of corn. Thin and watery.
