Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass, I got my girlfriend to split it with me, I have pretty low expectations. This pours a pale straw yellow with a small white head which quickly dissipates. The smells are somewhat sweet and light no real hop presence. The feel is very light. Taste is like what I expected very light adjunct.beer, but better than the big three lights.

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.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Pale yellow with a very thin white head.

Smell: Sweeter corn and grassy notes.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth light bodied. Taste was bland, corn and grassy like notes.

Overall: Not very good honestly. Oh well, had to try it.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma is corn and grass, not bad
Appearance- A pale yellow color with a small white head
Taste- Ok flavor, but has a metallic aftertaste. It faded with each beer I drank (go figure, LOL)
Overall, an average beer at best.

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.
