This bock pours a clear, dark, ruby red color with a rapidly dissipating, thin white head. The aroma is faint with a touch of malts and caramel. It has a light body with lively carbonation and a crisp mouthfeel. The flavor is only slightly malty up front, with nothing in the finish. Overall, avery bland and tasteless beer that needs some more malt to make it a true bock. Unimpressed.

After reading through the ratings for this beer it seems as though all the 5 stars are based on Texas people: "wooohoo Texas yeah! Right on!" While all the lowest reviews actually talk about the aroma, taste, etc. Shiner has an undeniable flaked corn aroma with little barley malt and no hop presence. When I initially moved to Dallas in 1993 I was 23 and I liked this stuff. We had a kegerator in our apartment and went through 3 kegs in a row. After that I could not stand the sight or smell of the stuff. Now, years later when I can discern flavors (and that I care too) I find it very similar to any BudMillerCoors offering with a handful of medium crystal malt thrown in for color. Shiner is a mystique beer though and is sought after by people who do not get it (pun intended). North Texas be dammed. We have the highest crime, most polluted air, and crappiest regional beer. We are indeed, number one.

This is supposed to be a bock? Anyway, it is very thin-bodied, and not very malty at all. I would say it is much more wheaty and yeasty than anything else.

Shiner should be the offical beer of Texas. If you can find it outside of Texas try one. Heavier than most beers in its price range. Malty caramel flavor makes it unique. A must-try!

Deep amber color with big bubbles and no head to speak of. Sweet, malty nose. Flavor is mostly malt, with lots of caramel sweetness. It is a little watery, but that makes it all the more chuggable. Not a great beer, but I can drink it.

My "reminds me of Texas" beer. The Lone Star state's session beer, okay on a hot summer day for it is moderately refreshing and not very filling. Light amber hue with minimal head retention. Candy malt and zesty hop aroma. Taste is rather bland but not offensive. Thin to medium-bodied with a watery and lively mouthfeel. Like I stated, an session beer.

Can someone say "the bud of bocks?" - because I sure can - I had this in a country music bar, which naturally made me want to get drunk as quickly as possible, but I could stilll hardly bring myself to drink this stuff.

Pleasantly surprised! Crystal clear mohogany lager. Small, fizzy white head. The aroma is very vineous and tart. Lemon and cabernet. Smells a bit like a geueze, actually. Malty flavor with bold shots of beef broth and tawny port. A touch tart and astringent. Well-balanced. Medium-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Short, dry finish with a touch of clover. I guess I'll go way against the grain here and say that I really dig this beer!
