Bottle. Light brown, sweet doughy malt aroma, nice body. Flavor is roast grain, bready malt, and some acidity that kind of ate away at the tip of my tongue. Drank it at a bar so it was sure better that the A, M, or C. Nice session beer.

Bottled. Boring, Boring, Boring. This tasted like nothing but a beer. Not distictive charactor at all.

On draught at Pappadeaux in the Houston airport. Glad to finally find this classic Texan beer. Copper-colored with a thin off-white head. Toasted grain and malt in the nose. Medium-bodied with a flavor somewhere between a Bock and an Adjunct Lager. Malt, stale hops and caramel are what the beer offers. The finish is smooth and does not contain much flavor other than some sweet malt. I canít really call this beer a disappointment because it met my expectations. It does not do the Bock style justice though.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle: Aroma smells just like a classic German pilsner. Pours a transparent brown without much of a head. Flavor is that of a classic German pilsner. If I havenít made it too obvious yet, this is a transparent brown weak flavored classic German pilsner. Maybe a tad of roastiness but so little it's insignificant. No caramel at all. Not even close to the other Bocks I've had.

Very nice & smooth bock. Not too bubbly and thicker than Iíd imagined. Needed a bit more spice for me, but overall a very easy drink and definitely drinkinable in quantities.

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.

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.
