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 ó itís 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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a clear copper body under a one finger fizzy off-white head that faded to a wispy film. The nose is just lightly hoppy, with caramel and toasty malt and a bit of graininess. The flavor is pretty bland and lacking in hops, and they arenít very bitter at all. More grainy and bland caramel malt than anything. Light to medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Pretty bland stuff.

Floral hoppy malt aroma with a zesty character. Thin head on a deep amber body. Mild dry bitterness. Caramel malt base. Clean finish.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a deep amber color with a thick white head. Too foamy really after the pour, had to wait a bit for it to dissipate. I loved the aroma, as the hops come out nicely. There is not much flavor from the hops though and this seems more like an England style pale ale as it is more toward the malt side with some creaminess on the palate. Nothing spectacular here just kind of average but I thought some good flavor for the price. The finish was had a bit of a bite to it.

Rated based on notes taken 22 Oct 2012 -- I really enjoyed this ale from Shiner. I really liked the commercials as well, I miss them.

Amber. Fruity nose. Taste- Caramel malt and fruity berry notes. Light hops. Not your typical pale ale. Ok.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Purchased in Vermont, part of their tester mixed-pack. Pours a clean golden-amber colour with a warm creamy cap, good retention and lots of sticky lacing. Malty nose with biscuit, fruity malts, mild caramel, yeast and hints of bananas. Flavours of light roasted malts, bread and again, banana notes. Smooth mouthfeel. One of their better brews so far.

Bottle from Beer Culture New York City September 2013. This is a well balanced beer with hops and malt sharing equal billing.

12oz screw top bottle. Pours a golden amber with a decent off white head. Wasnít expecting much and didnít really get much to be honest. Tasted like macro swill for the most part.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Terrible. Where are the hops? Biscuity malts that are muddled, not even pleasant. Tasted like a poorly done amber ale. Really dark for a pale ale.
