A very hoppy American Pale Ale, almost on the verge of being an IPA, but still has enough of that malty APA flavor.

Comes out of the tap a somewhat hazy and very appetizing copper-gold with a respectable pale wheat head. Strong aroma is malty and fruity, providing tones of apple and pear and a hint of banana. Flavor is mainly fruity, pear and apple and a bit of banana, malty and hoppy notes and a touch of horehound. Texture has good body and sassy fizz.

This was a strange one. Shiner Wild Hare Pale Ale has a thick, frothy, off-white head, a clear, somewhat bubbly, amber appearance, and nice lacing rings left on the glass. The aroma is, oddly, of coriander and banana, and the flavor is the same, with bread, sweetness, grapefruit, and bitter hop notes as well. Itís almost as if a heffe-weizen had been poured into the bottles by mistake. The mouthfeel is light, and Shiner Wild Hare Pale Ale finishes crisp, snappy, and refreshing- almost lager like. Even with all the strangeness, itís a very interesting beer and maybe the best that Shiner has on the market. I rate it excellent. A must try. RJT

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lovely golden yellow color, with two fingers of big, white head. Big thick lace. Now THIS looks like an IPA (or pale, whatevz).
The malt aroma is bready, English. There is a peppery hop accent.
The taste is a sweeter malt, slightly sugary. The hops are perfumey, flowery and sweet. Just a hint of a puckery sourness, but with an aftertaste of rose petals. Iím shocked at the complexity of a Shiner beer.
Feels slightly prickly. This might be a nice gateway pale for a non-hop drinker.

This beer is good if there is no other pale ale to have. Fairly good for cooking too.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle - $1.49 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a orangey-copper body, nearly clear with only a very slight haze to it. A finger of near white foam.
Smell: A scent of toasted bread and grains brushed with sweet-scented caramel and affixed to fine hoppy notes smelling of orange blossoms, a spot of orange oil, and grassy herbs.
Taste: Pale malts, toasty malts with touches of grain and gooey caramel. A drop of orange extract with herbal, grassy hops and some bitterness, not too terribly much, but enough to balance it out and close it out lightly crisp and nearly dry.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation.
Overall: Not overly bold, but not entirely mild, itís a decent, inoffensive pale ale.
