Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - FEB 20, 2004
Very light straw color,small head that faded very fast.The aroma was light malt and fruity with a decent sweet side.Light malt taste mild fruit presence and fairly sweet,and it might be my imagination but i can almost detect a light spice.Very light brew with mild hops,it's worth trying once but it's nothing special.

Tastes no better than most cheap American Standards. It's foul. This brewery sucks. I can't wait to try the hefe that I have from them sitting in the fridge.

Definitely has a corn aroma and flavor. Nice and light with a little honey sweetness. Very light color and flavor.

This beer is underrated compared to other similar beers. A little lighter in body than a European lager, but much better than an American one. Not overly hoppy, good balence of hops to malt very drinkable. Better than other Shiner beer.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 17, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2004 Bottle pours a very pale straw color with virtually no head. Aroma is somewhat grassy or hay like. At first taste you think you might have something, but nope, not much there. This blonde is fairly light & watery, but easy to pound. High class lawnmower brew this is.

elsberry (87) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 9, 2004
a pale golden yellow color, with not much head, but with a lot of carbonation. A light pine flavor, and a hint of possibly an orange smell. Hard to tell. Not a particularly bad beer, just not too good either. It would probably be a good hot summer day, working outside, really want a cold one type beer, but not anything spectacular.

Wife bought this as she hasn't got into big beers, so I decided to try one. Not as bland as most BMC's, but not by much. Pretty flavorless, and is not improved when it warms.

TheBeerGod (5249) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - DEC 7, 2003
Pours clear yellow with a small white head. Nose is malt and hops. Very crisp taste with grass, hay, malt and hops. Not as bad as everyone else has made it out to be. Like a standard European lager or pilsener. This would be real nice during the summer. Finishes sort of bland but decent beer nonetheless.

carboloader (673) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 10, 2003
pours pale yellow with small white head that dissipates immediately. Aroma is some malt and citrus. Highly carbonated. Flavor is inoffensive but nondescript. Tastes like light beers from big breweries. Maybe a little more flavor, but still not as good as other Shiner brews.

This really was not bad, if you are into drinking something that taste like Pine-Sol. This was just something I was drinking while moving furniture in and out of the house, so it served it purpose, it was cold and refreshing but that aroma and aftertaste are a hard pill to get by and swallow.
