3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Aroma of sweet malt - maybe some hints of roastiness. Pours a clear dark brown with ruby highlights with a mostly diminishing white head and no lacing. The taste is subtlety sweet. Rye grain with roasty notes. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Overall,while the beer was enjoyable, I expected a stronger rye taste.

Light aroma. Pretty good flavor for a shiner malty beer. Rye comes through a little in taste and aroma. Sweet carbonated thickness.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted on 5/27/2014 - 12oz. single bottle as part of a Shiner Family Reunion 6 pack bought at the local Harris Teeter supermarket. Aroma is very lightly roasted/toasted malt and very clean. Beer pours a nice copper color with a very thin head. Flavor starts out as dark, malty with a hint of the rye. Finish is muted, does not linger. It has an almost brown ale quality to it. Doesn’t feel very refreshing to drink, but the taste is good and it was a pleasant experience as a single beer.

Clear, reddish-brown with a small, off-white head. It has a toasted malt aroma with a hint of spicy rye. The medium body is somewhat sticky with average carbonation. The taste is lightly sweet and roasted.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice, malty aroma. Twistoff US longneck, bad label. Clear, dilute rootbeer brown, thin whitish head. Toast and spice bitterness, rye astringency, toasted whole grain sweetness but generally dry. Medium to slightly light body, a nagging bitterness under your tongue in the very end. ABC, Bull Run.

Deep brown with a thin tan head. Malty, nutty, with caramel and toast flavors. The finish thins out too quickly. Not remarkable or memorable.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle pour of a med amber red with a thin white head. Aroma of slightly sweet chocolate malt with a touch of rye spice. Taste of tasted rye with a slight refreshing citrus hop. Med light body with light carbonation and a short hoppy dry finish. Overall not bad but I would want all the flavors to be more potent.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear dark woodsy copper with a thick bubbly light tan head, which recedes quickly. Aroma has some earthy biscuitiness and some rye bread doughiness. The flavor is earthy and rye-doughy, with an unfortunate metallic twang about it. Medium bodied and nothing spectacular, like all Shiners.
