12oz into a glass. Pours a bronzed orange fire amber color. And thats all thats good with this one. Like the premium lager but a different color. Sessionable is in its favor, downable after mowing the lawn, giving to a sort of friend who thinks hes getting a good beer would be the best furture for any of these. Bland metallic and corn mixture is still bouncing around in my mouth. Pay it forward, this shiner is awesome.

Nice smell, a little bland. Good opaque translucent color. Nice "wet" mouthfeel. Strongest flavor is a a graininess. Refreshing and crisp. A boutique bud light.

Another bottle from the "Family Reunion" mixed sixer. Pours out a clear medium golden color. Crisp and clean drinking. It is what it is.

Pours a golden yellow with no foam head. Has an aroma of bread and wheat. Flavor is also bread and wheat along with plenty of carbonation. Very little hops, despite what is advertised. Very weak in all regards - much like most commercial beers. Meh.

Pours a clear brown amber with a light tan frothy head. Aroma of deep malt. Taste is mild malty. Not a lot of hops. So so.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Its body has a light golden color and good clarity with a tall white soapy head. This tall head quickly settles down to thin film of foam. Lacing is slick and minimal. There is not much here at all really just faint pale grainy malt notes with some light hints of grassy hops. There is a light sweetness from a white bready maltiness and cereal grain adjunct notes. The hops balance this with some grassy/earthy bitterness. There is a slight citrus like acidity as well in there. The finish is soft and dry with light carbonation.

rating due to psychic hypnosis via Buffalo alien. This is a mess. A hopped up and unbalance lager. Ugh. As a hop grower I am insulted at the waste of decent hops in this concoction of abject commercialism. Bleah.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a medium golden color with huge frothy white head that slowly recedes. Aromas of earthy mineral water atop grainy sweet bread. Light earthy hop aroma. The flavor is a bit malty sweet with a light earthy fruitiness. Medium to full body with a moderate level of carbonation. So far I liked this on the most from the mixed 12 pack I got. Its a decent lager, not horribly complex or continental inspired, but drinkable just the same.

More beer from my trip to the Amarillo liquor store. Smells and tastes like skunked Shiner Bock. How disappointing. This is the peril of slighly less low expectations.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
From a bottle. Pours clear gold with a fizzy off white head. Tastes like dry, grassy malt, musky corn. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like grass, musk, light grains.
