Is a distinctive, rich, full-flavored, deep amber-colored beer with an inviting smooth taste without excessive bitterness.

Pours dark brown with a big creamy light tan head. Aroma of malt, toffee, and slight cognac. Tastes malty, slightly sour, with a light mouthfeel. Not very complex, and light on the alcohol for a bock.

what is wrong with these bars that give you an ice covered glass, i spent the first beer having water drip on me. i want a beer not a glass that will piss on me. but about the beer. nice pour darkish brown with an average head that faded. not an unappealing aroma, but overall bland. hoppy taste that is a little watery, better than the majority of macros. a safe alternative at most texas bars.

This isn’t really a bock. More like an American Dark Lager if you ask me. Cola colored, quick thin head. Lighter aroma and flavor. What was there was some nuts and some artificial caramel. Pretty thin.

UPDATED: MAR 3, 2012 Bottle/tap. Light caramel malt aroma. Brown color with small head. Light caramel malt flavor. Watery palate. Shiner and Abita were two of the first microbreweries to challenge (quite successfully) the BMC stronghold in the south. To their credit, they have stayed independent (unlike Lone Star and Pearl) but unfortunately, they both seem to be a shadow of their former self. Now it could be that I have a more refined palate at this time, but then again, I still like other beers I drank back then (Pilsner Urquell and Franziskaner) just as much and Shiner doesn’t taste nearly as good as it did in the early 90s (at least to me). Still a nice ballpark beer.

Medium sized tan head, short lived with a teeny bit of lace. Light brown/red hued brew. Malty grainy nose. Med/light body. Medium sweet malty brew, lightly grainy, bready. Finish is medium sweet, thin. Drnkable in a pinch.

Nice deep caramel color with an equally nice malty aroma. Darn those two senses...they inflated my hopes for this beer. The taste was very lackingly muted, but with a slight nutty characteristic to it.

Not bad. Dark amber color. Some malt in the nose. Very little bitter finish. Nothing I’d go out of my way for.

The grains all have a presence, and adding their parts, making this a very drinkable (albeit thin) bock.
