2.49/5  rDev -3.5%
look: 2 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: Very light straw color, almost transparent. Rising bubbles, but no real head or lacing.

Aroma: Sweet cereal grains, malts.

Taste: Sweet grains or malts, very vague tang in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Light, thin, carbonated.

Overall: One of the most watery, boring, flavorless "craft" beers I've ever had.

Serving type: bottle

2.54/5  rDev -1.6%
look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Appearance-very washed out, one finger head of consistent bubbles, but faded fast
Smell- way too faint, even for a light beer, astringent sharp scented, had to really reach to detect any malt or hops at all
Taste-Pleasant enough for an American Light Lager…nothing lingering, but no unpleasant aftertaste, I find it better than Bud and Coors, but again on par as a light
Mouthfeel is non-distinct
Overall-Not a true replacement of the Shiner Blonde, it bears little in taste resemblance to that beer to me. I do like the fact that Spoetzl is trying to work a light beer and for that I will try to keep a six or two in the lager for friends who prefer light beers.
