2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a big thick white head and leaves behind very little lacing, beer is a clear golden amber color. Smells like your typical lager. Has some notes of grain, meal, bread and malts. Beer is very nice on the palate goes down easy, clean and refreshing. Tastes very mild not real complex but is enjoyable for what it is. I would drink this again, the kind of beer you slam on a hot summer day.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle from the Shiner Family Reunion variety sixer bought at WinCo in CDA, ID. Aroma is roasty, bready malt. Dull, but not as boring as the Premium I had before this. Pours almost clear old gold with a light haze; medium white head with good retention. Sweet but with a faint hop presence. Light metal offnote. The label brags about its hoppiness, but this could use a whole lot more hops.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pour is a darker gold with a large white head. Aroma is kinda vegetal and sweet grain. Flavor is weak and watery. No real malts and no hops what so ever. Kinda just sweet and thin. I guess they were going for a Sam Adams lager clone but missed the mark on the important things like aroma and flavor.

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.
