2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured a dark amber with a finger of off white head. Malty front that quickly dissipated to nothing of note. Bitter, but not a lot of hop flavor in there.

Light amber with thin but persistent head and a sweet, wet grain nose. Lightly-carbonated with a thin body finishing with honey and slight bitterness.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: APR 1, 2009 Pours a pale gold, average fluffy head. Aroma is of mostly hops, actually, which surprised me. Flavor is medium bitter, enough hops to at least partially cover the cereal grains. No maltiness. Make no mistake - itís a fairly light lager. But the hopping is sufficient to make it somewhat palatable. Alright for Shiner.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is citrus sea breeze Saaz. Smells like a nice Pilsner. Appearance is crystal clear copper with medium white tan head. Taste is caramel malt, bit of toast, with nice aroma hopping. Little in the way of bitterness. Aroma hopping and sweet malt lingers nicely. Palate is light and crisp, very drinkable. Overall this is a good beer. Malt is a little boring but the aroma hopping is well done. Really more of a dry hopped light Vienna Lager.

This is my least favorite of the Shiner brews Iíve tried do far. Kinda disappointed in this beer. I like German beer, this is supposed to be German beer and if it is, itís not a good one....

I wasnít crazy about it. Tasted like your standard Macro brew American light lager.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from 12 oz bottle into schooner glass.
Appearance: a 2" sudsy off white head falls moderately with some decent lacing remaining. Color is a clear deep golden with moderate streaming carbonation.
Aroma: fairly mild, just some light bread crust and a bit of sweet caramel.
Mouthfeel: fairly light and crisp with a mild, easy finish.
Flavor: toasted bread, some caramel and raisin, a decent hop bite in the finish and lingering in the swallow.
Overall: very good but not outstanding. Somewhat reminds me of Shiner Oktoberfest but with less flavor.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Rating from notes taken in early August, when I was having trouble connecting with the site ... this has just enough hops to be a really confused, muddy beer. Itís smooth and thin like a macro brew should be, but has pretenses of being something more. Donít be fooled by the pretense. This is a disappointment that is easily eclipsed even by Shinerís mediocre offerings.

Delicious creamy lager. Wish I could get a full 6pk of these and not just 1 in a family pk.

Bottle. Dark blonde with fluffy white head. Aroma is nutty sweet malt, light caramelization, light toast. Taste is medium caramel and nutty without any mineral or salt, grainy, some grain. Body is watery. Not bland completely bland or boring, but some oddness.
