Chocolate malt and a smooth drinking lager beer. This nicely balanced brew is well worth a try.

Black but not too heavy on the tongue. I like the roastiness to it but it overwhelms the actual hop flavors and aromas. But, you know the hops are present since they make this beer balances and drinkable. I can see why my buddy likes it.

Black with flecks or red when held up to the light. Thin khaki head with some lacing. Caramel, roasted malts, lager-like hops. Drinks easy, but nothing special.

12 ounce single bottle from a Shiner Family Six pack purchased at the local Harris Teeter. Pours a nice dark brown color with a little bit of head. Aroma is very malty with some chocolate and coffee notes. Taste is similar to the aroma and is very refreshing without being too filling. This is one of Shiner’s finer beers.

Deep dark brown pour with a tan head. Aroma light roast and grainy. Taste is grains, light smoke and coffee. Slight bitterness. Light body.

Shiner brews all of their beers light to style. Bohemian Black Lager is not as chewy as I like a scwarzbier to be. It is also more brown than black. It’s a basic attempt at the style, nothing to really make it stand out, but it’s drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Purchased in Vermont, part of their tester mixed-pack. Pours a dark cola-brown colour with a creamy beige top, good retention and some creamy lacing. Aromas of mild roasted malts with hints of vanilla and caramel. Again, light roasted malts with watered-down caramel malts. Not really sweet, not bitter. Just a decent lager that goes down smoothly and with darker edge.

12 oz pours a beautiful dark brown and has the aroma of coffee and chocolate...however the taste is very bland, dry, and watery

"Different label these days. Porter-like pour. Aroma a little dusty, but underneath a good dose of roasted malts, coffee, toffee sweet. Aftertaste great...chocolate, roasted malts, a kiss of smoke. Smooth, thin. Possibly the best Shiner I’ve had."

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown pour, healthy beige head on this one. It provides excellent lacing. Aroma is toasted malts, mild pine hops on the nose too. Taste is cocoa, coffee, chocolate, and toasted oats. Thin mouthfeel, easy to drink. Pretty good overall.

Bottle - small foamy head, very dark amber/brown color, mildly roasty malt aroma and flavor, mild hop balance - not bad overall
