2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2012 Spicy, peppery, mildly citrusy hop aromatics, with an inky edge that I find somewhat weird. The taste is nowhere near as bright as the aroma — it’s dull and shy, with some vestiges of hop citrus and grass toward the aftertaste, along with some caramelized sugar. The malts do tend to grow in character with temperature, but not enough to rescue the beer. Light body with lively effervescence, making for a satisfactory mouthfeel. Underwhelming.

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 don’t know what it is, it’s very orange peelish. It’s drinkable, but it ain’t 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. it’s not BAD, but not something I’d 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...

dark orange 1 finger consistent head that never fades. the nose is really interesting. like fresh pineapple and a little lactic acidity. taste though falls short. mild cream, some orange, pineapple and something else. a little yeasty and light tartness.
