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

The aroma is similar to most North American mass produced beer. Pretty color, and much darker in looks than taste. It is easy to drink and unremarkable for the most part. Not really a bock.. more of a 'Dark American Standard' I might even prefer it's regional imitation (from A/B I think?) Ziegen Bock.

Dark brown colour, has some decent malt in the nose. . . the flavour is sour and very unlike a real bock - though not all that great, I prefer it to many other mass produced beers.

Nice some what golden color,malty aroma mild hops and the taste was very disappointing not much there at all for taste everything was mild at best,and the ABV.how sad i was kind of looking for a little kick there but it's just to damn low.I can't believe i paid shipping to get this one in to the great white north,But it had to be tried and for it it deserves what it gets a less then average rating.

I wonder HOW and WHY this beer is shipped from TX to Kitty Hawk, NC? Tasty malts - caramel, but leans towards the syrupy side. Very slight hops at the end. Easy drinkin' with no thinkin'.

This is what u pick when the other choices are Bud & Miller. Nothing at all like a bock, but it does somewhat resemble beer.

This is about as good an imitation of a bock as "Texan" GWB is an imitation of a president. Thin, corn-syrupy-sugary, zero hops, drinkable and better than Lone Star but extremely boring.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2009 On tap at the Houston airport. Sweet, no head, dark and reminicent of Big Rock Trad. A nice session beer. Had a bottle in a world of beer pack. I still not a bad beer.

If I was expecting an American Standard, then Shiner Bock would have been an agreeable experience. Instead, the label makes the audacious Bockian claim, and the brew fails in this regard. Shiner has your typical straw-colored "light beer" body, and little aroma. There isn't much to say about the flavor; while it is tastier than the Budweiser clan, there is little detectable malt sweetness that I typically associate with a bock. Drinks more like an American lager, unfortunately.

A good regional brew. Been around for awhile. It is not great but it is not the worse in the world.

Usually I can be fairly forgiving with a crappy American lager beer. Usually these pale yellow jobbies are fairly innocuous, semi-sweet, watery, boring, but not actively bad. Shiner bock is actively bad. Retch-inducing. Seriously--something in there seemed rancid. I have no place in my heart for such a thing.
