Shiner Premium

This 4.4% ABV beer is based on their 1909 recipe. It is from the Spoetzel Brewery in Shiner, Texas, maker of Shiner beers.

The beer pours a pale golden yellow, champagne-like in color, but not as bubbly. There is a short-lived head of white foam. The aroma is light grain, light straw, a touch of lager funk. The taste follows the aromas, this is a light lager, a touch sweet, grain and some light fruity notes, then a mildly grassy finish. It is relatively crisp, refreshing in the mouth. This is very akin to Miller High Life, but a tad less sweet, a tad more grassy on the finish.
