COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Wild Hare is a classic American Pale Ale-richly hopped, fruity and floral. Munich malt nicely balances the assertive character of the U.S. Golding and Bravo hop varieties that give this brew its signature bitterness and aroma. Enjoy!

Bottle @ home picked up at Wilburís Foco. Pours a clear, dark orange appearance with a medium sized, light brown head. Toasted grainy, biscuity, cracker, a touch fruity aroma. A touch tangy, light caramel, cracker, toasty malty, bready, herbal, strangely hoppy/bitter flavor. Pass.

Solid beer, a bit of citrus and fruity flavors. Had a couple on 2 seperate occasions and 1 I had, had nothing but metallic taste for some reason but the other were fine. Wouldnít mind at all drinking again

Location/Date: Bottle on August 18th, 2012.

Appearance: Pours a dark orange.
Aroma: Aroma is sweet malt.
Taste: Light bitterness, malty.
Palate:Light body.

Summary: I try to give every beer a fair chance not depending on brand, but Shiner consistently doesnít come up to par with what Iím looking for.

Comes out of the tap a somewhat hazy and very appetizing copper-gold with a respectable pale wheat head. Strong aroma is malty and fruity, providing tones of apple and pear and a hint of banana. Flavor is mainly fruity, pear and apple and a bit of banana, malty and hoppy notes and a touch of horehound. Texture has good body and sassy fizz.

Amber color out of the bottle with a cream colored frothy head. Soft floral hop nose with some acetate. Clean fruity flavor with some apple and berry. Some grassy hops with some orange and tangerine notes. Nothing wrong with this beer, but nothing special either.

ChainGangGuy (4281) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - AUG 12, 2012
12 ounce bottle - $1.49 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a orangey-copper body, nearly clear with only a very slight haze to it. A finger of near white foam.

Smell: A scent of toasted bread and grains brushed with sweet-scented caramel and affixed to fine hoppy notes smelling of orange blossoms, a spot of orange oil, and grassy herbs.

Taste: Pale malts, toasty malts with touches of grain and gooey caramel. A drop of orange extract with herbal, grassy hops and some bitterness, not too terribly much, but enough to balance it out and close it out lightly crisp and nearly dry.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation.

Overall: Not overly bold, but not entirely mild, itís a decent, inoffensive pale ale.

A little easy for a pale ale, but I suppose that makes this one stand out. Light on the hops, with floral tones.

Bottle in Bucks County, PA. Orange body with fluffy head. Nose is malts, caramel, some fruits. Taste is malts and fruits again, some oranges. More bitterness in the finish. Enjoyable.

No freshness date.

A: Very slightly hazy amber body with a placid look to it. Only a very thin white head sits on top, but not for long.

S: The aroma is rather weak in strength showing off a semi-sweet blend of caramel, malts, and some floral and citrus hop notes. The caramel is a bit too strong here compared to the hops.

T: Light floral notes intertwine with the malts on the first sip as hints of citrus kick in, but the caramel comes in a bit too strong on the finish with some oranges. Barely any bitterness here.

M: Light to medium bodied with slightly sharp pangs of carbonation that build up to a nice presence at the end.

O: Much like everything else Iíve had from Spoetzl/Shiner this ends up being a very unremarkable beer. Shiner seems to aim for inoffensive and drinkable rather than going for an excellent example of the style.
