Bottle. Pours a Pale yellow gold with a small frothy white head that quickly diminishes to nothing. The aroma is a sweet malt and cereal. Thin mouthfeel with a wheat and corn malt flavor and nice crisp finish. Easy to drink, a decent lager from Shiner.

Bottle. Pours a very clear white gold color with a small frothy head that diminshes quickly. The aroma is a bready malt and corn. The taste is a watery salty malt with a bad aftertaste. Not much going on with this one. Avoid this beer.

bottle, lightest yellow, no real flavor to speak of, Shiner can be hit or miss, on the guadalupe this would be acceptable, otherwise not so good

Not a bad light lawnmower. Smells like light beer and tastes the same; perhaps a little sweeter with less hop presence than its peers.

Light yellow water appearance. No head. Balanced aroma of grain and hops. Flavor is a little fuller than most pale lagers. Sweet palate. Heavier finish for a light beer.

Iíve never seen anything as pale as peral light until now. Pours watery pale yellow. With a 1 inch head that lasts 45 seconds. Aroma of fine malt. Taste is malty, bready, watery, metallic, and bitter. Finish is strong and bready, and a little metallic. What was the idea with this one?

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - MAR 5, 2011
Pours an average glassy yellow with a nose of sweetened corn and short-bus wheat. Taste is slightly glamorous cornsyrup wheat and Frosted Flakes. Average mouthfeel. Whopptidy fuck. Iíve rated all the Shiner beers.

Pours a stupid clear yellow with an aroma of short-bus corn. Flavor is weak copper and mineral water. Watery mouthfeel. This stuff should only be given to people you hate.

Bottle courtesy Fratto, who got it from pikapp327. Itís always traced back to pikapp327. Well here we are. When this bottle was brought out of the fridge, the group erupted in groans. Apparently they arenít too excited about a pale lager, regardless of who itís from. I poured it in my glass and scrambled for my phone to take a picture of the head but by the time I pulled up the camera the head had all but disappeared. Oh well. It HAD a fizzy white head with a very clear straw appearance for the body.†

The aroma is not very good. Kinda trashy, old grains, slight souring notes and gym socks. Not fresh gym socks though. The sweaty kind that you forget in your gym bag until you open it up after sitting in the garage for several weeks.†

Flavor is tons of corn and rice notes, with watery notes and metallic characteristics. Iím sorry, I know I donít often trounce a beer Iím reviewing, especially from my home team but....this is crap. Donít bother trying this.

Really didnít taste much different from any other domestic light beers. Bud light under the Shiner label.

(12oz bottle, courtesy of Fratto) Pours a clear pale yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of light cereal and some corn. Flavor is much the same. Watery mouthfeel and finish. My tap water has considerably more complexity. Could use for hydration after a good workout.

Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - FEB 26, 2011
Bottle from pikapp327. Very pale and clear pour with a medium white head. Thereís decent lacing. Iím only mentioning the lacing because thereís nothing else thatís goof about this beer, and letís face it - I have never had lacing effect my enjoyment of a beer in the slightest bit. The aroma smells old and past its prime. I donít know how this is possible. The beer hasnít even been out a week yet. The taste really isnít that bad. Itís just lame and uninviting. Minimal flavor and awkward. I really thought that after Shiner 102 and Old-Time Alt that Shiner might actually be trying again. I was wrong.

Dear Spoetzl Brewery and the town of Shiner,

This beer is a lie.

12 oz bottle. Pours a light straw yellow with fizzy white head. Aroma of grain and corn. Flavor is the same with notes of cardboard. Mouth feel is light, watery and over carbonated...Overall, itís just like a Miller, Coors and Bud light.

Bottle, Kegs & Barrels in McKinney, TX. Pours a clear light yellow with fizzy white head that dissapeared very quickly. Aroma is actually nice, a light berry smell.....Flavor is not bad, just not much of it.....slight berry and very little malt....Mouthfeel is very watery and high carbonation.....This is a light summer beer to quinch the thirst and not be very heavy, and it taste much better then a miller lite with slight citris notes added....that appears to be what they are going for with this beer, so Im not going to slam it, it was light and refreshing....I would drink this again on a hot day by the pool....and guys, if your woman doesnít like beer, let her try this.....

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2011
Poured into a pint glass. 1.5 A: Extremely pale yellow, like diluted piss. No head and no lacing. 1.5 S: Nothing with a hint of grainy pungency. 1.5 T: Water. Not piss water like other macros, just plain water. 1.5 M: Carbonated water. 1.5 D: As drinkable as carbonated water. This beer fucking sucks. The only thing it has going for it is that, unlike a lot of macros, I donít want to throw up while drinking it. But even that isnít good. Sometimes Iíd rather taste something bad than nothing at all.
