Spring has sprung at the little brewery in Shiner, TX (pop. 2,070). And with it, our newest brew, Shiner Dortmunder-Style Spring Ale. The Old World classic pours deep gold in color, with a white head and smooth flavor. Its medium hop bitterness and hints of grain, honey and floral hops will refresh you like a sun-drenched nap on a lush green lawn.

I had this beer when it was still labeled as Frost. Interesting that they would change the name. Light without a lot of flavor. Subtle hops and short finish.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear gold with a chunky white head. Aroma of grain, malt, grass, and a bit of hops. Taste is similar. A bit on the sweet side. Nothing exciting, but decent.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear copper with a half finger of white head. Aroma of grains and light herbal hops. Taste is light bitter. Grains and hops. Medium bodied with a lightly creamy texture. Lively carbonation and a decently long finish. Overall, not bad. Good intro to craft.

Grassy hop notes and strong pilsner malt flavor. Fairly well balanced, but definitely a beer to be enjoyed outdoors after working in the yard all day... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22oz from HEB. Pours about the right color at an off gold, white but quickly vanishing head. After that... Nose of grains and stale malt. Bitter at the front, but not in a balanced good way. Some strange taste like rubbing alcohol. I clicked on the word astringent because it as close as I can come to the unpleasant nature of this beer. I did not finish this one.
