Basically a Shiner Bock with more bitterness, but one can discern a variety of subtle hop flavors as well. Pleasant smell with some sweet hoppiness, copper color with great lacing. Mild, balanced, and drinkable taste. Maybe just a bit thin on the palate, but a good balanced flavor. It would be nice if they sold this in six packs, but I've only found it in the shiner "family reunion" mixed packs. Recommended.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- mild aroma of malt and caramel.
Appearance- A nice dark golden color with a fairly large off-white head.
Taste- Has a yeasty flavor with a hint of caramel and some hop added for good measure.
Palate- A light bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Has a light and crisp finish.
Overall- A slightly better than average beer, I would drink it again but I wouldn’t go out of my way for it. drdisque (840) - Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2010
pours clear with medium foamy head. Mild floral hop aroma. Very fruity hoppy initial bite that subsides into cereal malty nothingness which slides into the finish. A lot of good ideas not perfectly constructed. heemer77 (5358) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUL 7, 2010
Dark bronze amber colored body with a dense slightly yellow tinted head. The nose has some rich mashed potatoes with notes of raw grains. There is also some fresh pressed apple cider. The taste has some raw potatoes and spice of celery, especially in the finish. There is also an ever present red Delicious apple note. A soft mouthfeel helps this one along. A decent effort, but certainly nothing special. dwyerpg (6188) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 5, 2013
This is basically a simple yet tasty enough beer with just a hint of caramel malt. Nice orange color.

Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance –Pours a golden amber color with a two finger white head. The head has a decent level of retention, fading over about a 5 min time frame to leave a rather light level of lacing.
Smell – The aroma is of sweet caramel as well as a good bready aroma. With these aromas is a lighter smell of a very light earthy nature.
Taste – The taste is bready and malty upfront. Some lighter sweetness is present up front as well. It is mainly caramel in taste and as the taste advances further it sweetens more toward the middle to the end. At the end a very light earthy and herbal flavor comes to the tongue with some of the caramel fading. In the end a rather crisp and biscuit flavor is left to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the very average side in terms of its thickness and creaminess. It furthermore has a very average carbonation level. Both are fine for the style, but nothing too out of the ordinary.
Overall – Pretty easy drinking, but rather average for a lager. Alright and it is rather easy drinking.

Pours a clear golden color with a medium white head that left quite a bit of lacing. The aroma is bready, cereal, malts, some hops. The taste is rather sweet malts, caramel, and toffee with only faint hops. LowBrau (139) - Tonawanda, New York, USA - APR 23, 2015
Medium gold color. Nice combination of medium sweetness and alcohol. Light bitterness and a touch of fragrance from the hops. Toffee aroma. Very enjoyable. Strykzone (7364) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUN 14, 2017
12 oz. bottle from hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. Clear and copper in color. An off white head of just over one finger. Aroma is grain and lemon grass. Flavor is kind of fruity, kind of grassy, kind of sugary, kind of syrupy. A bit of Euro hop notes under there. hayduke (5218) - Eureka, California, USA - JUN 14, 2017
This was a shared tasting with Strykzone. Pours dark gold with a white head. Nose of lemongrass. Medium body and a smooth mouthfeel. Flavor of sweet caramel malts and grassy hops. Finishes with some spiciness and bitterness. Decent beer/
