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

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 Ive had! Im 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.

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.

Bottle: 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 dont know if they used rice as an adjunct or not)...... Really a pretty darn good light pale lager.

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.
Earlier Rating: 4/30/2008 Total Score: 1.6
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! Its actually not bad to me for what it is. More flavor than your standard 90 calorie brew and some respectable qualities.
