A widely available beer that is not too close to a true bock beer, but easy to drink.

I really like this beer, although I might be a bit biased as I’m from Texas and it’s pretty much the drink of choice at all the various social events.

I keep going back and forth with this beer. As a teen, I loved it. It was the first beer I ever really enjoyed. Nothing goes with tending the pit or eating Texas brisket like a cold Shiner Bock. Once I started getting into better beers I realized that Shiner isnt that good of a beer. It comes off as skunky and lacking character when compared to other types of beer. It doesn’t even taste lock a bock. Now, after touring the little brewery in Shiner, I cannot turn my back on this beer. It will always be welcome in my fridge, with a place next to Belgium’s finest or anything Sam Smith makes. Damn Texan pride!

Decent beer, nothing special. Medium head on a copper liquid. Pleasant malty aroma, flavor is fairly neutral, a bit caramelly. Slight bitterness comes through in the aftertaste.

Nice amber color, okay head. Bit of an after taste, but smooth while going down. Has a bit of an astringent quality to it.

I bought a case because it was on sale this week. nothing amazing, but drinkable. a middle of the road beer, not one that sours the face, and not one that you just have to try again.

Although you will almost *never* get a head like the pictures at www.shiner.com would have you believe, this is still a really good beer. A *very* decent micro-brew that is also widely available (from on tap at $10+ a plate resturants to gas stations) -- at least in it’s distribution area...
Not the best beer you’ll ever find, but definately not bad...
Nothing beats a hot Texas summer day and a cold Shiner Bock...nuff said.

Decent malt taste but a little thin.
