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

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 Iíd go out of my way for.

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

This seemed to fizzy and unbalanced. Weak flavor. Not very interesting. Overall, forgettable.

Sampled AIBA 2004. A little bit sweet in both aroma and flavour. Surely this is just an amber coloured lager, it has almost no bock qualities.

Really a good beer with BBQ or if the only other beers served begin with a Bud___!

Good beer if you just want something you can find easily and want a decent beer. Has a lovely colour and a good aroma. Flavour can be a bit metallic at times, but i find that this varies. One of my favorite every day beers.

Iím from Texas. Thus my DNA spells Shiner Bock. I love this brew. Another example of something much better out of the bottle than on draught. Iíve drunk more of this than water in my lifetime. Beer looks like a good solid dark amber bock; nice white head and nicely carbonated. Smells like a big Germans wet jock. Dry and fetid smelling. Something admirable in a brew. Tastes interestingly yeasty and cheesy, I love that about this brew. Itís cheap but it smells like a belgian. (to me you purists will probably cut my sack off for that). Aftertaste is dry and bittering. Spritzy and watered down on the palate. Another thing youíll find in most Texas brews. Unbelievable drinkability. In austin we drink this like it were the fountain of youth. My liver has Shiner Bock tatooed on it. G-rat

Pours dark wiht an off white head. Taste is of light malt, very mild but crisp. Smooth with a nice aftertaste. Maybe a little weak for a bock but very good nonetheless.
