Not as "light" as you might expect from a "light" beer. Definitely a Shiner product. Beautiful color, and very enjoyable.

"Had w dinner. Non offensive but nothing special as expected. If I needed to go light this might be the choice (though Sam Adams is more likely) but I hope that day never comes. Grassy hop aroma that disappears a little on the palate."

355ml twist off. Absolutely watery beer, very similiar to any other light lager in all ways.

This beer has a very clear straw yellow color with a light soapy head on top that quickly dissipates. Only a small ring of bubbles is left and lacing is nill. The aroma is light clean and a little bready with the slightest hint of grassy hops. It’s simple, clean and light bodied. Light bready maltiness brings mild sweetness for the light hops to balance. The texture is light and well carbonated but not overly fizzy.

Pours a very pale straw yellow color with white head. Mostly a little cereal grain on the nose; follows onto the palate. Typical adjunct light lager.

Erzengel (4716) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 10, 2013
Rating from 2011: Sehr hellgelbe Farbe im Glas, weißer Schaum. Der Antrunk st leicht getreidig-wässrig. Im Hauptteil Pale-Lager typisch, recht wässrig, süffig, leicht malzig. Der Nachgeschmack ist mittellang, malzig, leicht getreidig und süffig-wässrig.
--> typisches Pale Lager. Dafür aber gar nicht so schlecht. -->8/13/7/7

12oz can. Rating #168. Clear light golden/yellow with a big bubbled head. Light tin aroma, light malts. Mild and kind of flavorless, no aftertaste with the exception of a little more tin. (2818)

Not horrible really. Just another mediocre light pale lager. Corn aroma , pale looks, no palate. Not much to say really. Cool tags.

Lemke10 (855) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Probably one of the better "Light" beers I’ve had. Pours a pale amber color with a decent head as the slight scent of malts tickle your nose. Upon drinking there is complex malt taste which leaves the beer weaker in taste but still has a rather in depth texture to it that finishes rather smooth. Something better to try than the ol’ Miller Lite and Bud Light.

Golden. Sweet corn, grain, water. Very thin and watery. Not good at all, even for its style.
