Very light. Had this labeled as Blond Light. Sold as a low calorie brew; not much flavor.

12 ounce bottle into lager glass, best before 6/5/2017. Pours crystal clear pale golden/yellow color with a 1 finger foamy and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin lace cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of cracker, lightly toasted biscuit, light honey/pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of cracker, lightly toasted biscuit, light honey/pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of cracker, biscuit, pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness and balance of pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance. Moderately increasing dryness from bitterness and carbonation. Medium-high carbonation and light body; with a very smooth, crisp, fairly bready/grainy, and lightly sticky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Perfectly clean on lager flavors, with zero yeast notes present. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.2%. Overall this is a nice light pale lager. All around good robustness and balance of pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. Surprisingly flavorful for the ABV and 99 calories. Clean pilsner malt flavor with nice balancing hop presence. A nicely enjoyable offering. alcamp99 (72) - McKinney, Texas, USA - DEC 6, 2013
My favorite light beer. Great flavor. Doesn't taste watered down. Slightly hoppy. This brew has been repackaged.

Pretty good for a light beer. Flavor and aroma. Drink really cold.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx beer_rookie (635) - Arkansas, USA - OCT 28, 2016
Pre pour thoughts. I love the Shiner bottle caps. Different one for each beer. Best by 12-9-16. Pouring into pint glass.

Pours a very clear, light light yellow color. So clear, and well carbonated. It makes for a beautiful show. About one finger fizzy white head. Pretty good retention, pretty good lacing. For a light beer, this is quite impressive.
Aroma is cooked vegetable. Light bread crust. Light spicy hops.
Taste is sweet and lightly spicy. Light bread crust. Light corn flakes. The spicy hops lingers.
Mouthfeel is very light bodied. Very refreshing. Actually rather smooth. Impressive.
Overall, this is actually really good. Perhaps the best Shiner product I’ve had! I’m always expecting poor stuff from Shiner, but they delivered here. I would probably buy it again, I would absolutely recommend it. I probably buy it more as a treat, for when I want to unwind with one or two.
12 oz bottle. Taste was pretty good and overall not too bad on the other elements. Give it a try and you may like it. shrubber85 (11570) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - NOV 11, 2016
Bottle. Biscuit malt and straw aroma. Golden yellow with small head. Moderately sweet milky biscuit malt and mildly bitter straw flavor. Good body. Pretty good - would rather drink this then Shiner Bock. Patrickctenchi (6690) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - NOV 13, 2016
Clear, light gold with a short white head.
Lemon, grain, straw aroma.
Taste and body have some decent substance.....
Barley malt, grains, maybe a little rice-y creaming...(I don’t know if they used rice as an adjunct or not)......
Really a pretty darn good light pale lager.

Now this is a light fucking beer! I kind of dig it. It seems every bit as carbonated as soda pop but not all syrupy. It has a touch of a breakfast cereal malt character and maybe even a hint of hops. It’s super clean so you can actually taste these things despite there being very little flavor overall. All that carbonation lends a satisfying bite to the finish as well. This is not going to fulfill the desires of most avid beer geeks but, let’s face it, most avid beer geeks are dipshits. I find it strangely compelling myself. ginotarugo (70) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 21, 2017
An underrated Pale lager, this Shiner Light Blonde is very drinkable. Very weak on the aroma side however, and low ABV. Overall, I enjoyed it, but prefer San Miguel for this particular style.
