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

(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.

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.

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!!
