Hazy darker orange with off-white foam head, lacing to glass. Aroma is quite hoppy with some caramel. Taste is first hoppy, then turning into sweet and in time hop again. (Houston 201301)

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle thanks to Mindy: Pours a nice copper/yellow with a good white head that sticks to the glass; nice CO2 release. Aroma is slightly sour, bready malts and doughy yeast. Taste is salty and slightly sour. Belgo yeast strain is prominent. Not easy to drink, astringent and bubbly on the palate. Iteresting and different but not that great for the style.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Consumed from the Twelve Ounce Goblet of Lower Expectations. Floral, lightly candied, moderately tangy aroma with some sour fruit. Rusty-tinged, clear beer. Standard US longneck, albeit twist off. Frothy mouthfeel, thatís my first impression. Generally pleasant, lightly sweet, with a tangerine peel bitterness. Long, fruity bitter finish. Pedestrian, but passable. Publix, Bradfordville.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz Bottle. Pours a clear copper with a finger of fine white head. Good retention and some nice lacing. Aroma is mildly hoppy, citrus, bread/hay, slight malt tones. So far so good, however the flavor is where this beerís shortcomings really become apparent. Flavor is bread/grain/wheat with mild citrus hints. Where are the hops? Not even remotely bitter or pale. The malt comes through stronger than the hops, but even it is mild. Mildly bitter finish that lingers. Moderate carbonation and very light body, with a watery texture. A mediocre beer, but Shiner is the only brew from Texas Iíve found around here. It is palatable and light, but not even close to a pale ale.

I wonder if the mediocrity associated with the name Shiner has unjustly worn off on this beer. I donít think its that bad, easily one of their better offerings. Sessionable, mildy floral aroma, watery pine needle character, dark gold appearance. This is better than average.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear red pour with a single finger head. Aroma of sugar and hints of US Goldings. Mouth is medium. Pretty light taste. Some bitterness is balanced with a hint of sugar, but I found it to be a little coppery or metallic.
