L: pours brilliant pale straw as streams of bubbles rapidly rise to form a thin white sudsy foam cap with moderate to poor retention. T

S: light grain, a hint of cracker, light floral hops and a hint of fruit. The malt and hop aromas are medium low.

T: mild malty sweetness becoming more grainy with light bread crumb notes as it crosses the tongue. There is a faint trace of fruit but overall it has a clean fermentation character. Hop flavor and bitterness are low and the balance is towards the malt. It finishes medium dry.
F: body is light and the carbonation is medium high.

O: This is a light beer with a smidgen more flavor than the norm for light beer.

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?

This transparent yellow beverage smelled a bit like hops, I thought. I tasted none, though. It was like lightly beerish flavoured carbonated water. And I don't like carbonated water. I'm an American. I was outside on a hot day, and I still would have preferred a Shiner Bock. Even those are pretty watery, though.

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.
