This pours a semi-cloudy, golden amber color with a thin beige head. The aroma has a weak scent of grains and yeast that is overtaken by the smell of hops. The taste is kind of unique for a pale ale as it has a little bit of spiciness to the hops. Drinks a little more like a spiced beer than a pale ale to me. Drinkable a fairly decent for the price.

355 mL bottle. Not all that bad, although nowhere near the stronger examples of the style. More malt than hops, an odd (not unpleasant) yeast note for the style, and a touch of bitterness in the finish. mgb12315 (1) - USA - FEB 15, 2013 does not count

On tap. Not impressed with this pale ale. Metallic aftertaste and mineral aspect to palate. cbfobes (2885) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - FEB 4, 2013
Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a clear amber orange with a fluffy white head, aroma is pretty light hops with kind of a metal touch as well, the flavor is morello flavored with a soapy finish, mouthfeel is thick and sticky, pretty much all over the place.

Tasted from 12 oz brown bottle into a nonic glass. It poured a beautiful reddish amber color with thick, fluffy, long-lasting off-white foam and lots of lace. Really nice appearance. Aromas and flavors of a hops-forward APA or English Best Bitter. A little rough-around-the-edges, but I confess I like this hops combo of Bravo for bittering and Goldings for aroma. It’s a nice break from the trendy American-C hops. Citrusy, floral, earthy. Malty with very light caramel/candy sweetness, some fruity esters, good bittersweet aftertaste. Light-medium body, average carbonation, slightly bready mouthfeel. Not the greatest beer in the world, but a big step forward for the brewers of Shiner Bock, in my opinion. I enjoyed the whole 6-pack, which isn’t always the case. JakeSparks (125) - Alvin, Texas, USA - JAN 21, 2013
nice to see shiner doing a pale but its not very good. plus it sits around in places and when you buy it, its got no body left geologyguy (1645) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - JAN 21, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2014 Smooth and slightly malty beer, not hops, tasty and slightly sweet, good beer if cheap kjohns (131) - North Dakota, USA - JAN 17, 2013
Clear golden pour with a large off-white head. Aroma is a fair amount of floral hops and some sweet caramel malt. Taste is more malt forward and rather sweet. Flavor has a fair amount of Belgian yeast characteristics to it. Not what I was looking for in a pale ale. rdenney18 (109) - Lawton, Iowa, USA - JAN 11, 2013
12 oz bottle. Very smooth pale. Slight fruit taste Doesnt have that typical pale hoppiness.
