UPDATED: NOV 4, 2006 OK, they told me this was a local craft beer. What makes it a bock? Not a terrible American standard lager. One was more than enough. Did not bother to finish it. // Tried another and could not drink it. Swill.

Wary but interested - $4.50 a six in a big display. Damp cardboard maltiness confirmed my suspicions - not that good, but worth the shot, anyway.

The fact that this is called a bock it what cracks me up. Just another bad tasting amber lager in my opinion, and the excessive bitterness part is way off.

Just a step above BMC. When a commercial description includes the phrase "without excessive bitterness," its just best to skip it.

It"s ok. Seems a lot like your standard North American lager with a little color and sweetness added. I"d much prefer this over BMC.

Okay, so it’s not a true bock. Okay, so the flavor doesn’t inspire poetry. The fact remains that this is a decent tasting beer that is extremely drinkable and doesn’t offend the taste buds like most domestic lagers. The color is a gorgeous amber. If you’re in for a long night of drinking with friends, this is a good choice since it goes down smooth and is not too filling. The labels are easy to peal off without tearing. Besides, Shiner Bock is the quintessential Texas beer, and that alone is worth a decent rating!

Doesn"t shine, nor is it a Bock. Poorly named and a poor excuse for a decent beer.

bock, what bock? thin mouthfeel, averagely lager-ish flavor. it’s like a dark michelob.

Nice amber color with weak aroma. Small amount of hop flavor with a thin body. This tastes like a light version of a typical German beer. Nothing great, though.
