12 oz single, Mac’s downtown, Atlanta, GA, USA.
I wasn’t expecting much from this beer, since my experience with Shiner has been average at best but its often worth persisting with this kind of brewer. Nice loud pour with a pretty lively head and some nice lacing. Head has some persistence.
Dark brown body with some rust/orange colored highlights. Some sweet caramel notes in the nose, but surprisingly you don’t get a lot of this in the taste. I suppose I shouldn’t really be surprised because even though this looks like a sweet, malty brown ale, its actually a Schwarzbier.
Dry finish, a little acidic and sharp and clean. Not a lot of malt here and only very mild bitterness. Not bad.
