a nice bronzed ruby pour like a single-malt scotch with a head. the foam is adequate and will lace on demand. however, that’s the very zenith of the product-- if i would have dumped it in the sink right then and run, i might have come away with a favorable impression. but i gave it a sniff and the aroma belched a litany of unsavory constituents. the nose is as ugly and abused as any hapless and incompetent pugillist. starchy notes of wallpaper, moldering hay, flooded basement, and yesterday’s soggy cornflakes. flavor is like a macro-brew fake oktoberfest with a slightly orange-cedary taste diminished by it’s watery body, prickly carbonation, and bitterness which comes from pickle juice rather than hops. i drank it all, but it wasn’t pleasant. like wasting a huge appetite by gobbling a box of stale ritz crackers.

Nice amber color. Aroma reminiscent of a well made(???) macro. Flavor not very distinctive. In all, no great shakes.

I had this one off tap and I was impressed! It has a nice subtle dry finish to it, and it is a very clean cut taste, not bad

All through college in Houston,
people would go on and on about Shiner.
Personally, I thought it resembled
carbonated iced tea. Ho hum...

Nice copper color. Decent flavor with a smooth maltyness. A requirement in Texas lite bock beer drinking.

The beer that got me through grad school. Nice rich colors, very smooth drinking. Not the most complex bock around, but certainly a favorite in Texas. Closer to mainstream brews than micros, but a pleasant, consistant drink. You always know what you are getting when your order a Shiner Bock!
