2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: Hay and whet with light floral citrus notes
Appearance, Light amber decent lasting head
Taste: Very bright yet still hopped flavor that fades to a sweet finish that reminds me of Spring.
Palate: just a touch thin but not enough to be distasteful just highly drinkable. I could drink it all day
Overall: Exceptionally refreshing sweet and aromatic brew. Seeing as I can find it for around 1 USD a beer i think i will make it my knockabout every day beer for the summer. Refreshing an easy to drink yet satisfying whilst not spectacular still a hard combination to come by

You could do a lot worse than Shinerís pale ale we have here. It is too thin for the style; it has a problematic hop and grain bill, but it does work as an easy, summer sipper. I donít agree with the Munich malt, but they went for it and I think it doesnít belong. So... decent, but canít recommend. 12oz pour.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Decent APA from Shiners! Almost, but not quite, IPA which should appeal to the folks not really "hopheads" or those that do not like accented hops in the taste of beer. It is not too sessionable since the ABV is higher than one might expect from the taste. I remember it being less ABV(?) perhaps with some wheat which I donít sense in this now. But it is a good, kick back in the PM after the lawn is mowed beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The aroma has grape/cherry/orange and overall fruity notes. The color is transparent copper color. The taste is where you notice the hops. A pretty good beer, it works for me.

The smell is ok, and the appearance is fairly nice... The taste for me not so much, I really donít know what it is, itís very orange peelish. Itís drinkable, but it ainít my beer

bottled - not bad for a Shiner. Nice color and flavor. Has a little bitterness to it - along the lines of an ESB. Aroma is nothing/bad though.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber colored. Nose is spicy and fruity. Bitterness bites at the beginning of sip, then slides to mellow sweetness, and finishes bitter. Sweet and toasted grain aromas. Also has hints of pepper and grapefruit.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Meh. not a classic APA by my definition. itís not BAD, but not something Iíd get again. Too much biscuit and a hint of cardboard cut through with grassy and citric hops. just ok.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark golden color, clear, avg carbonation and a head with no retention. Aroma of light citrus/fruit and a hint of floral. Flavor is similar with mostly a bittering finish. Light on the tongue and a light beer overall but definitely APA in character. No off flavors.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
It pours a clear medium amber with a white sudsy head and possesses mild notes of grain malts, floral hops, caramel and a stale cardboard odor. This brew is a little lighter than I expected, it has a very mild hoppiness and a light caramel sweetness and not much else. Really nothing special here...
