1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Very pale yellow in color with a small white head. Aroma is lightly fruity and malty. Flavor is the same, but both are weak. It is however better than the light offerings of and of the big three.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle. Pours extremely pale yellow, and very clear. Fizzyand short lived head. Smell is like a thin pale lager, faint corn malt. Taste is kind of cornish. Not a particularly clean flavor with prickly carbonation. Very thin and watery. Not great, but still drinkable. A better light than the macro brews.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Medium gold body with lots of fast moving bubbles. There is a bright white head on top. The aroma is metallic canned tomatoes with some rotting apples. There is a little bit of hay. the mouth feel is very off putting with way too much carbonation. There is a sharp raw Russet potato character in the flavor. A little bit of peanut shell comes through. This is pretty awful.

Should probably give even lower marks for having this bitch stuck in a case as their special seasonal. I piss this stuff and my piss is better.

this poured a clear straw yellow with a thin white head. aroma of slight citrus and some banana. flavor was carbonated water. light body with high carb. this was not a good beer at all. i think i overrated it also. it must get some homestate points or something.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
I am not one to look for low carb/calorie beer. If I had to though, I would get this. Decent flavor, quick fizzy head, typical generic light beer. Great lawnmower/ drinking game beer as it is quick to go down and really starts to hit the spot after about 6-7. I would recommend this on a hot August day here in Tx.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Head is initially small, fizzy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is clear light yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (grain, husks), trace hops (herbs), with light notes of paint and DMS.
Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly unclean, slightly husky.
Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation.
Precisely what you would expect.

For some reason I have a special allegiance to Shiner, TX. Great summer beer and hit the spot after sweating in the yard.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a very, very pale yellow with a small fizzy head, short-lived, and plenty of gas. Not much aroma, but what it has is grain and cabbage. Way too carbonated, so whatever flavor it has - corn, mainly - is more of an aftertaste.
Like the Chicago area needed another near flavorless beer.
