ThisWangsChung (836) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - JUN 30, 2013
12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a light straw color. The head is a typical-looking one finger white shade. It seems to retain itself more strongly than others in the style, which isn’t saying much. S: Unfortunately, it’s not far off (at all) from a typical adjunct lager here. Notes of corn and cooked veggies emanate from the aroma. These notes aren’t as strong as they are in, say, Bud; if they had a healthy backing of hops behind them I could easily view this as a pre-pro pils and be done with it - alas, it’s not the case. Meh. T: Flavors are as straightforward as they can be - some sweet cream and a touch of corn. No cooked veggies from the aroma are here, thankfully. If this does anything right, it’s the fact that the adjunct notes here aren’t as off-putting like they’d be in a typical BMC product. Actually, my main problem here stems back to what I said about the aroma: where are the hops? The malt backbone is perfectly acceptable for the style, but without any balancing hops, it’s simply too sweet. M: Typical of a lager, it’s light and easy to drink. But it finishes too sweetly, and as such, isn’t as quaffable as it could be. O: This seriously needs more hoppiness to it. What’s sad is that this missing feature is all that stands between Shiner Blonde being just another crappy AAL (which it is) and a wholly solid pre-pro pils. A shame, really.

12oz shiner premium bottle, pours a clear pale golden with a medium white head. Aroma of sweet caramel malt, light corn and saw dust. Taste similar to aroma sweet malt and corn, light grain and faint hops on the finish. Non offensive, simple, might be a good lawnmower beer out of a can.

Metalchopz (3391) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 14, 2016
Purchased in the States in 2015 at one point. Surprisingly still good. Golden colour with a white cap, average stay and some lacing. Malty nose with some honey notes. Cereal grain taste with the sweetness well-blended. Crisp mouthfeel and nothing offensive. Pretty decent premium beer.

60minuteman (1718) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 27, 2015
Golden pour, simple body. Weak aroma. Pretty standard sub-par lager. Not a lot of character in any capacity. Not even heavy in ABV.

3.6
rjplumer (1098) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 27, 2015
Aroma includes a light grain, grass. One finger of snow like head tops a clear light gold body. Tastes of light grainy and hay. Light bitterness. Crisp, clean and light bodied. Refreshing yet not wimpy.

Fredis23 (564) - Hickory Hills, Illinois, USA - DEC 16, 2015
Clear Pale Yellow Color, Small White Head That Diminishes to a Thin Ring That Lasts Through Out, Just A Few Spots of Lacing. Highly Carbonated, Kinda Hard To Drink. Faint aroma of soggy wet malt. Some Sweet Grain, Light Malt, Dusty Bitter. Easy Going. Bland And Forgettable as Nothing Stands Out. Thirst Quencher At Best. OK For What it Is. Pass It...

Pours yellow and clear. Aroma is grainy., not unpleasant. Taste is lightly malty, a bit sweet, barely perceptible hops I think. Decent carbonation but thin.
