2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle, I’m guessing most people got this beer from the "family reunion" pack. Copper color, clear, laced, good stable head. Smells sort of cheap and sour, very simple. Taste and palate isn’t bad, it’s slightly bitter, with a sour-ish aftertaste. Actually one of their better ones.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Auburn colored and clear, head was about a finger and lace is so-so.
Aroma is that of grape soda, sweet and fruity.
Flavor is a bit more complex, fruity and sweet, herbal, and I suppose.... cactus.
Body is light and well carbonated, with an almost dry finish.
It’s interesting, if not the brewery’s best effort. Not bad.

The first few sips had some interesting fruity tastes, but like most Shiner beers still has a watery feel to it. After a few sips, the initial taste fades and it tastes more and more watery. Overall, an okay beer. The flavor combination is good, but Shiner needs to add some body to their beers.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - Betton - 12 oz bottle - part of their "Family Reunion" six pack. Pours a sparkling medium copper with a tight off-white head that leaves just a hint of lacing. Aroma is sweet and reminds me of watermelon flavored Now-or-Laters candy. Flavor has some pleasant fruity accents with hints of guava and blueberries. Back end has a touch of vanilla. Mouthfeel is thick enough. A pleasant to diversion to get me through my Christmas gift wrapping.

Bottle. Poured a clear golden yellow with a nice white top that lasted throughout. Taste of pear, cactus, and other fruits. Medium body, medium carbonation. Wow a good brew from Shiner, that’s a rarity!

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Lightly sweet prickly pear taste on the front. Gives way quickly to a very mild malt. Inoffensive and easy drinking.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sweet, fruity, pop tart aroma - notes of cooked strawberries. Deep, clear bronze, thin white head, OK label, standard US longneck. Reminds me of breakfast toast - buttery, jammy (sweet and sour), a little salty, toasted. A light but noticable bittering. Medium body. Interesting, possbile session beer. ABC Liquors, Bull Run. Snitched from a mixpack of other stuff I’d already had.
