Shiner Blonde pours to a light golden color with a head of foam that features large bubbles. The foam falls apart very quickly, leaving behind a glass of beer that looks very much like a standard American lager. The body of the beer is crystal clear and the aroma is one of cereal grains, yeast, and a small amount of fruit; again, much like a mass produced product.

Shiner Blonde offers a flavor that is grainy and slightly hoppy, and also sweet. The taste starts out with the flavor of light, sweet malt, followed by the faint taste of grassy hops. The crisp, clean flavor profile is also influenced by the contributions from the yeast, which adds a slightly dough- like character, but smooth lager character in the middle.

Shiner Blonde is a beer that offers a few good points as well as a few negative points, almost equally balanced between the two. Its dominate flavors of yeast, sweet malted barley, corn, and cereal grains and the crisp finish remind me of many other standard beer products. It’s one of those take it or leave it type of beers: One that won’t offend and that most will find acceptable, but not one that stands out in any positive way.

This lager was pretty good. It was not what I expected, it was lighter than I thought that it would be. It smelled really good as well. The taste was not that bad, I know that I liked it. If anyone has not had this beer They should try it out. That is if you like this kind of beer, It had a golden look to it. I know that I have always liked Shiner beers, so if their are anymore out their that I have not had I can't wait to try them.
