Iím new to this whole thing, but I drank some Shiner Bock while in Austin. Compared to what else Iíve had, it was pretty good.

Goes down good with Bar-B-Q, Iíll tell ya whut. A decent, somewhat sweet, generically dark beer.

Shiner Bock is a decent beer available in Texas and in the Midwest. It beats the pants off Longhorn. I grew to like it.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A nice bronze color with an off white head leaving occasional lacing. Interesting aroma of caramel malt, peppery yeast, and then a grapevine/raison like scent. Clean malty taste, not hoppy or bitter, and then a wine like finish. Good mouthfeel. A nice beer that Iíd order again.

22 oz. bottle. This tastes like busch light with brown food coloring in it.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Disappointed by this one... tastes more like a malt liquor than a bock. Too sweet, and really not much else.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Copper in color with a bit of red, musty hop metallic aroma. Malty metallic flavour. For a beer called a Bock itís light bodied and very boring. It's always amusing to try a macro style Bock...

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Better story on the label than the beer in the twist-off bottle, though not too shabby. A bit thin, certainly nowhere near full flavored, an attempt at some malty sweetness, more color than body yet indeed drinkable.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Appearance: clear bronze, with an admirable, bone-white, 1/2" froth.
Aroma: mild, even nearly negligible, with tiny hints of nuts and caramel.
Taste: rather flat and blase, flinty, even, at first, a nothing of a mouthfeel with very minor character. Mighty quick finish. Leaves the palate rather dryly. Flavor possesses traces of those nutty, sweet, malty characteristics, but theyíre just a faint whisper in the wind. Malt is dominant, as much as such a mild-mannered component can be, and hops donít seem to be around at all.
Not a beer Iíd ever feel like drinking again, but Iíd slug it in a pinch. Considering itís popularity in itís home state, Iím rather relieved that certain Texans are choosing this instead of Lone Star.
