Very light. Had this labeled as Blond Light. Sold as a low calorie brew; not much flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

My favorite light beer. Great flavor. Doesn't taste watered down. Slightly hoppy. This brew has been repackaged. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

I had this one while on vacation in Wisconsin. It is a pretty crisp tasting brew. It goes down nicely on a hot summer day. Light and refreshing.

Tap flight at Freetail Brewing. Very light yellow pour with a big meringue white foam head. Superb lacing. Smells like a wit beer; wheat and coriander. Taste is like mashed up Wonder Bread soaked in water. Now I know what the buns taste like when Joey Chestnut is throwing down at the hot dog eating contest. USA! USA! USA! Itís actually not bad to me for what it is. More flavor than your standard 90 calorie brew and some respectable qualities.

Pours a very light gold color. Thin head and quite watery looking. Iím detecting an aroma of pizza dough and italian herbs. Flavor is slightly peppery and very bubbly on the palate. Overall itís a bit more complex in aroma and flavor than I would have thought just by looking at it. It may make a great food pairing with pizza or italian food.

Clean beer. Easy drinking because of the clean finish. Goes best after a summer activity like cutting the grass or doing yard work. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A bit too sweet and light for a Shiner product, to me. Grassy, fruity. Very small head when poured into a glass. Refreshing.

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 Iím one of those greaseballs who doesnít 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 Texasís official beer!!

12oz bottle poured into a tiny motel-room glass. Pours piss yellow with minimal white head. Aroma of light herbal hops and skunk. Taste is about the same, going farther on the herbal side. Light bodied with a thin texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, not that bad. Much better than most of the "light" beers out there.
