12 oz bottle. Clear gold pour with a thin white ring. Active carbonation. thin watered down. Aroma of cereal malts, wheat, and citrus. Taste is same as nose. Dry finish. All around thin, flavor, aroma, memories, and body. Boring.

What can i say has some aroma some taste and even looks like beer. Hell i would go as far as to say at least better than anything lite but thats it. Im sure if i was dying if thirst or still underage in college this would be the nectar of the gods compared to the stuff easily obtained. For those who it isnt there first beer i would just say meh its beer i think.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a light straw color. The head is a typical-looking one finger white shade. It seems to retain itself more strongly than others in the style, which isnít saying much.
S: Unfortunately, itís not far off (at all) from a typical adjunct lager here. Notes of corn and cooked veggies emanate from the aroma. These notes arenít as strong as they are in, say, Bud; if they had a healthy backing of hops behind them I could easily view this as a pre-pro pils and be done with it - alas, itís not the case. Meh.
T: Flavors are as straightforward as they can be - some sweet cream and a touch of corn. No cooked veggies from the aroma are here, thankfully. If this does anything right, itís the fact that the adjunct notes here arenít as off-putting like theyíd be in a typical BMC product. Actually, my main problem here stems back to what I said about the aroma: where are the hops? The malt backbone is perfectly acceptable for the style, but without any balancing hops, itís simply too sweet.
M: Typical of a lager, itís light and easy to drink. But it finishes too sweetly, and as such, isnít as quaffable as it could be.
O: This seriously needs more hoppiness to it. Whatís sad is that this missing feature is all that stands between Shiner Blonde being just another crappy AAL (which it is) and a wholly solid pre-pro pils. A shame, really.

As Shiner Premium- Crystal clear, watery yellow pour with a minimal white head that disappeared quickly. Aromaís of general beer, nothing substantial. Light body with a taste of malt and just a faint hops. Has the typical Shiner aftertaste. If you havent had it, you arent missing much.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Faint straw-colored yellow with fizzy carbonation. Smells of mineral-infused water and malt. Tastes like low-quality maltiness and effervescent, but smooth. Not bad at all for a session beer/swill.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours clear light amber with very small and fizzy head. Light wheat scent. Very light wheat flavor. Nothing going on for this beer besides being a good light session beer.
