This is the same beer as Shiner Spezial Leicht.

The beer pours a clear yellow color with a white head. The aroma is heavy on the grain with nothing else going on. The flavor is more of the same. I get a lot of grain and some grassy notes. This beer tastes almost exactly like Miller Lite, which I assume is what the brewers were going for., Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Purchased a 12 -pack of this to share with a friend while out at the lake. The word 'light' had me not expecting much ...

A- Bright lemony yellow with high carbonation and a large white head when pured into pint glass.

S- One note: Light sweet malt scent.

T- Malt, very light. Slight hop bitterness and a slightly skunky aftertaste.

M- Light-bodied, smooth.

O- Meh ... Certainly a step down from other Shiner brews. I guess it's probably a step up from the so-called yellow fizzy beers and at least your money goes to a smaller brewery than InBev or Miller-Coors ... Am I grasping at straws?

Pours out to a thin white sudsy head that lasts but does not lace. Very pale yellow and lots of carbonation bubbles. Aroma is very light and grainy and slightly grassy. Flavor is very light and thin. Not much going on. Reminds me of another all malt low-cal/low-carb beer that is no longer brewed. For what it is it is OK.

Shiner Light Blonde has a medium, stark-white head, a clear, light-straw color, with lots of streaming bubbles and almost no lacing. The aroma is of musty, sweet & sour grain, with a little spice noticed in the sniff. The flavor is of sweet, musty grain, paper, sourness, and grass. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Shiner Light Blonde finishes dry and crisp. Overall, this is a substandard beer, even in the light class. Not much here.
