It wasn’t the best bock that I ever had, but then again it could have been a little bit colder. I think it would have been better if it would have been colder.

Reminded me of a watered down Yuengling lager. Very disappointing for a bock beer.

Dissapointing - rather bland & kind of acidic. Slightly skunky nose, rather flat. Just not a good beer...

Had it on tap and was not very impressed. Better than the normal american mass brewed swill, so I guess it has it’s place in the world...

Got Stout? (173) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 22, 2002
A rancid brew at the wrong temperature, but a wonderful one at the right. A smooth, not-too-bold-for-anyone first drink is accompanied by a nutty and wholesome finish. My Austrian grandmother loves this...!

SmellGood (339) - Memphis, Tennessee, USA - APR 21, 2002
Although not a great beer, I definitely like this beer....and I’m not even from Texas.

JFGrind (1835) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 17, 2002
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!
