1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle, 12oz. As Shiner Light Blonde. And yes, it is a light blond beer, almost pale yellow, clear, and with a minimal sized white head. The aroma is rather weak, some pale malts, yellow apples and a hint of spent grains and a very faint touch of citrus show up. It’s very thin on the palate, with a soft carbonation and some hints of bitterness. Not much flavor either, just a little fruityness and some pale malts. Short finish. Well, it doesn’t meet much resistance going down the throath, but it doesn’t taste much either, and is one hell of a boring beer. 130829

Bottle from the Coop in Davis, CA. Pale golden color with a fizzy white head. Aroma of grain with a hint of hop. Thin bodied with mildly fizzy carbonation. Flavor is grain and imaginary hop. Just a bit zu leicht.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
(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.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours with a fizzy head and an extremely pale body (perry pale). Dust, corn syrup, corn, wheat, a bit tangy and some dust. Taste is corn, mineral water (or Dallas, mineral rich tap water, BO, sweat, dust and just bad over all. Watery taste, fizzy, but not too harsh. Really nothing there.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
12oz twist off cap bottle labeled Light Blonde pours with watery gold bubbly crystal clear body that supports a loose weak white head. The aroma offers up lagery fruity esters and a dusty sort of something and then a faint whiff of floral hops. The taste is similar with a sugary malt sweetened mild floral hoppiness mixing with sweet apple and pear like fruity esters. It gets to being less sweet into the finish with a faint brief sort of lemon note, so there’s that. Overall just too sweet for a session beer.

oysters? on a turkey?? .. . Pours a light gold, foam is grand .. . light grain and dried grass, with a light sweetness, maybe a touch of corn .. . gout sucks apparently .. . this was quite nice actually, but sampling a beer like this at the end of a tasting seems to have been the light tongue refresher i needed- hence my enjoyment i fancy .. . You think I’m one of those greaseballs who doesn’t know the difference between a bow-tie and a cumberband.

I knew it would be bad, and it was WORSE! .. why is shiner making a light low calorie beer??!?? it pours a very pale with a strange faint smell ... Taste is just FOUL! ... nasty nasty beer. I have lost respect for this brewery.. Just make your 100th anniversary beer (which at this rate will probably be an NA or a smirnoff cooler clone) and close down and let Saint Arnold take over as Texas’s official beer!!

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
6/25/11. 12oz bottle with applause and cheers of joy and thanks to Cavie. Hurray. Disgustingly light, clear pour with a touch of yellow. It’s like I dripped some pee into a glass of Sprite. Dusty, metallic aroma with a very plain, slightly grainy flavor with a touch of metal. Considering the blandness and drinkability, 4% is pretty good, honestly.
