2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Ckear dark amber pour w/ a small white head. Aroma is sweet fruit, grain. Flavor has bitter and sweet but not well-balanced. Fruit, grain, some not pleasant vegetable flavor. Drinkable but just barely so.

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.

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.

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.

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.

2.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Well this is sad to say this is about the best so far out of the shiner reunion pack and it is still not that great. Not sure why they like it so much in texas. Has almost no aroma barely a hint of hops im no hop head but come on i didnt know we were going back to middle ages prehop beers. Whatever ok i guess on the fact i can finish it.

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.

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 - it’s a fairly light lager. But the hopping is sufficient to make it somewhat palatable. Alright for Shiner.
