3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Did not pour into another glass; I don’t care about appearance. Smells sweet, carmel, a more toasted depth to the grain than I would expect from a pale ale (not necessarily a compliment). Taste is moderately hoppy, muddled sweetness. Probably would taste better very very cold like a macro. Light body with a thin, slightly syrupy texture. Doesn’t have as much of a contrast between the body and the slightly hopped taste as I would like... again, muddled, but an excellent attempt to throw most macrobrews off their paces.

Tried this beer on tap at Twin Peaks in Houston, TX. A classic American pale ale with light fruit and floral notes, hops give it a slightly bitter lingering aftertaste. Enjoy cold on a hot summer day.

Sampled at the Artisans Craft Beer Festival 2012. It poured a cloudy dark orange color with a white head. The aroma was mostly citrus with a hint of pine. The taste was lightly bitter with some citrus and pine. A good APA.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours amber with off-white head. Aroma is a little malty with some tartness. Taste is a little bit of sweet caramel malts with a hint of hops. Not a lot of flavor and there is an off-putting metallic aftertaste. Just OK.

12 ounce bottle from State Line. Pours a clear amber color with a large frothy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of caramel malts with a bit of toastiness, Floral, herbal and slightly peppery notes. The taste is floral, pine, minty hops with faint malts. Thin-medium bodied. Smells great but the rest of the beer is a little underwhelming.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Drinkable as a Lite beer replacement but otherwise not on the radar. Usually I’ll like Shiner offerings but this one is on my "don’t bother" list. Thin bodied with an unusual flavor. Thought that maybe it was just my bottle so I poured another. Same problem. Not a fan of this one.

Aroma of lemon, brown sugar, and and yeast. Pours amber with small blanket. Taste is mildly hoppy with citrus and a chalky malt back. Meh.

On tap at the ranch. Pours clear, light coppery with two finger white head. Bubblegum, light fruit, floral, straw, a little citrus. Moderately sweet and bitter. Body is crisp and slightly acidic. The bubblegum/fruitiness makes this more akin to something like a wine cooler than a macro-brew, but I still put away a couple of pints with dinner last night.
