hazy yellow, whispy white head, slightly sweet aroma, light malt flavor, hint of sweetness,
Aroma: 4/10; Appearance: 2/10; Flavor: 2/10; Palate: 2/10; Overall: 5/20
The score was calculated based upon the notes and an old scoring system.
An old semi-regular drinker back in the early undegraduate days, it was fizzy and yellow with a decently-present fake honey and sugar flavor. Appealed more as a fruit beer with its sweetness. SudsMcDuff (8429) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - NOV 16, 2006
I had this beer a couple of years ago and haven’t seen it at my local stores for a while, When I had it, Nice pale red, more of a brown color, some head, with not a lot of lacing, the taste was great....if it was stronger, a satisfying beer... kidmartinek (4999) - austin, Texas, USA - JUN 14, 2009
had on of these saved from a long time ago. Pours a light golden color with a 2 inch head. Aroma is faint and consists of mostly sweet malt notes. Flavor is very sweet and only a little bitter. Taste more like flat flavored malt water than beer. Palate is spritzy. Finish is foamy. KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - OCT 31, 2004
Not a bad beer, but it needs more of something in it to make it better. Honey, maybe?!! False advertising, sure, but it’s not bad.

Ok, I do not care for beer with honey flavor. This beer was decient quality, somewhat sweet. Color seemed yellow, goldish like. Had decient fruity notes. Im not a fan of this though. Andrew196 (1902) - Katy, Texas, USA - JUN 11, 2002
One of my favorite shiners, I probably like it better than their winter ale. Regular Shiner with a kick. I dont know if they even make this anymore since they started putting out the hefe. fly (1486) - austin, Tejas, Texas, USA - AUG 8, 2005
Although perhaps not as bad as I make it out to be, not what I would consider to be a true (or at least well made) wheat beer in thge European sense. When you see HONEY in a name, be afraid. Okay, that’s a gross generalization, but so was this beer. AceOfHearts (1374) - Mountain View, California, USA - APR 20, 2002
I like this stuff, it’s Shiner’s differently flavorful relative. Good wheaty taste. milljam (682) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - FEB 10, 2009
Although I’m not a fan of wheat beers.....I liked the subtle honey flavor with this one. it wasn’t overpowering...and it added a nice sweetness to the beer. It ashame they don’t brew it anymore.
