Shiner Spring Ale ....

Tonight's beer is the Spring Ale (Dortmunder Style) from Shiner Beers.  Twelve ounce bottle.  Internet research shows this beer comes in at 5.5% ABV.

Spring Ale poured with a medium to thick, bone colored head.  The beer is golden in color and very clear.  The aroma has some fruity/floral sweetness, and a little spice and grain.  The taste is fairly mild.  There is some sweetness, and a grainy/grassy taste that almost borders on metallic for me.  Slight bitterness.  Sweeter finish with little aftertaste.  Refreshing, but pretty mild.
