Light clear gold in color, decent white head, fair lace, nose is malt. Sweet at the start, top thin, highly acidic, high carbonation, dry, clean and crisp. Great, ’NO’, drinkable, yes.

I liked Shiner Blonde ok. A decent but not outstanding beer.

If you like good beer, don’t waste your time with this. If you like Bud, Miller, or Coors, still don’t waste your time with this because it costs a little more. I like their bock ok, but this stuff ain’t all that good.

I enjoy how they call this one blonde to hide the fact that it is ’Shiner Bock Light.’ I like Shiner Bock, therefore, I like Shiner Blonde. Not nearly as good as the real thing but I would take it over the other domestic lights we all know about.

Only one word describes this beer, blah. This beer is almost completly tasteless. If you want a blond, pick up some carolina blond.

It smells bitter, and it looks like a light beer. Then, upon my first sip, I realized I had just had an encounter with a bland beer. This thing reeks of mediocrity...

1st response: holy crap look how pale this is! Pale gold almost straw color. Nice fizzy, med head though. Noble hop aroma - light spice and floral. Flavor is a combo of floral and bitter notes. Malt is virtually non-existant.

This is actually the original Shiner Beer. The name was changed after the Bock got so popular to make it more trendy. It is not bad, as far as a lighter beer goes. I much prefer it to the watered down millers and buds that are on the market.
