1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
As Shiner Premium. Not much to the aroma, just a lot of malt. Pours a very light golden color with little head. Taste is what you'd expect from a light lager. Not much complexity, just a simple beer.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
pours clear very light golden with a small white cap, some retention and lacing. lots of apple fruitiness - unsweetened apple sauce, pale cereals - some husks and cheap white bread, corn, ginger candies, musty white grapes - their juice; almost rotten fruitiness - over-ripened pear juice; grassy and spicy, cardboard traces. light carbonation, light body, balanced and almost crisp herbal-grassy finish. past its prime perhaps, but far from horrid.

Typical lager aroma grains and yeast. Pours a pale gold color with a lasting white well laced head. Moderate carbonation, with a light body, taste of grains. Short lasting grassy finish.

This was tasted not as the "Blonde" but as the "Premium" :
Poured from a very cold 12 oz. dark brown bottle into a thick lager glass (w/ a glass handle on it); a full flowery hit; very light coloring, almost like a "lite" type hue, but not; i like the taste, another M.O.R. brew that’s rather kicked back w/ an ez yeasty after-taste lingering; light body with a steady flow of effervescence; and overall, very likable, drinkable, enjoyable.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Shiner’s premium beer is a decent thirst quencher. Light clear, golden appearance. Neutral flavor of malt, some corn and/or rice, mildly hopped. It is not a light beer by definition but it is a sessionable brew if one is so inclined. As a summer style beer it does the job. I would definitely pick this up over any BMC product if I had the choice.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can’t say much... It is very, very reminiscent of Budweiser. From the smell, appearance, all the way down to the taste. Not bad, not great, but it’ll do nicely.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Medium gold with a small white head that dissipates quickly. Well-balanced and refreshing. Nothing offensive, rather good actually.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a clear pale straw yellow body with just a minimal fizzy white head. The nose is pretty light, just a bit of husky grain and sweetness. The flavor is light and rather bland with a short finish. Light bodied and fizzy with a watery texture. Pretty boring stuff. Hard to believe that this is all malt.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle, a gift from my sis. This is a crystal clear blonde with good carbonation and a small white head The aroma is crackery with hints at corn on the cob, earthy hops and is free of flaws. The body is pretty light, expectedly so. This is really a decent lager. No weird off flavors, just straightforward malt and conservative hoppiness. It’s slightly sweet, but not too bad. Finish is crisp. I was pleasantly surprised by this one. It’s not too shabby at all. I might even prefer this over Yeungling as far as mass produced lagers go.

This is better than your typical American lager. Not a huge a fan of this though. I would drink this before any other American lager.
