Shiner 101 Czech Style Pilsner

Finally, our Shiner distributor sold all they could in the areas around Fredericksburg, so they had no where else to go but here.

Appearance (0-4): Pours up a pale straw colored with gold highlights, with a thin white head that dissipates quickly to a thin layer of foam. I'd like a longer lasting head. 2 points

Aroma (0-3): Honey like malt notes with faint noble hops in the aroma. Grainy, and is that corn I smell? 2 points

Taste: Hop/Malt Balance (0-4): Slighty sweet, corny, grainy malt flavor with a hint of hops in the finish. 3 points
Mouthfeel (0-3): A little thin 2 Points
Aftertaste (0-3): Clean finish and quite refreshing. 3 points

Overall Impression (0-3): Smooth. Although it reminds me of the Frost and of the Kosch-style. Nothing spectacularly new here. 2 points

Total: 14 Points
