Sometimes a hybrid between two things can be better than either. Sometimes it can be worse, but have itís own use case or special character that makes it itís own thing that one might be desire, or even just be a compromise between two things that lets you get some of what you want at a cheaper price. Iím afraid that Third Shift does none of those things. It attempts to compromise between a macro and craft beer, and I canít help but think Iíd rather be drinking either a macro or a craft beer. It doesnít offer the flavor of craft or the smooth refreshment of some adjunct lagers. There is just this sickenly sweet Shiner Bock like taste combined with a mild tasting lager. Fortunately, itís not enough like Shiner Bock to outright taste like vomit. But if youíre tight on cash, buy an adjunct lager, youíll like enough it as much or more and save a little money in the process. If youíre not tight on cash, get yourself a nice IPA or the craft style of your choice. Either way, Iíd say leave this on the shelf. It doesnít outright taste bad, but it tastes worse than a lot of cheaper beers and certainly no where near as good as a lot of craft beers. MillerCoors should consider trying this concept again, but instead of vomit flavored malt, add a few extra hops to their lagers or something. An extra hoppy version of an adjunct lager at a cheaper price point than craft might work. This doesnít work, not even on the third shift. ;)

Bottle. Prominent hoppy aroma, with above average carbonation. Solid hoppy mouthfeel, slightly bitter finish. Very drinkable.

Seems like a coors with food coloring...some malts but not good ones. Still to me just a grain tea. Doesnít even taste like it has alcohol in it. Yuck.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Deep gold pour with light quickly dissipating head and lace. Aroma light malt and sweet corn. Flavor is sweet malt with a medium floral hop finish. Medium bodied and fizzy. A beer that is a bit sweet and not toasted. Sweet almost cloying finish. Some bitter in the finish. A bit of a mish mash to me. Drinkable at some level.

Bottle - Sweet malt flavor are heavy in this brew. There needed to be some hop bitterness to cut the sweet.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Rated on 02-24-2013 at Bostonís Restaurant & Sports Bar (Jacksonville, FL) This bottled beer forms a small smooth off-white head that mostly diminishes, golden transparent body, very little carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is grainy, metallic, corn and some malt. The flavor mimics the aroma along with a semi-dry finish. The mouthfeel is light carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. This beerís flavor is not that great tasting and this is a beer not on my drink again list.
