Pretty impressive beer in my opinion with a strong flavor and full body. This beer is the awesome compliment to any Robert Earl Keen show if you know what I mean...

UPDATED: APR 26, 2007 Rerate Not sure what I was smelling before, slightly mettalic, decent copper appearance, faint traces of malty caramel Original 2.9 Not sure how they get away with calling this a bock. Surprised at the hoppy aroma - but the thin flavor did not match - better than most cheap dark beers - but nothing to write home about.

This beer falls into my quantity column. As a poor college student, this is one of those beer that i can get at bud prices, but vastly surpases bud quality. I also hold some texas bias. This beer is certainly not a bock, yet a decent beer all around.

its not bad. I would rather have a amber bock but i would buy this one again, not much aroma or flavor but really smooth and no after taste.

My favorite beer hands down. Unfortunately I can’t seem to find it in Pennsylvania where I live now. Local brewery that has been part of the Shiner community for decades.

Another american bock. Add some chocolate and crystal malt and they call it a bock. Very light in body. Light head. Light in flavor. Floral/fruity aroma. Just not much of a bock, more of an amber lager.

Ernest (6222) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 11, 2002
Head is small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium orange-brown. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted light bread, caramel), with a light note of peach. Flavor is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly astringent.

Dragonblaze99 (354) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2002
Medium, slightly roasty aroma. Opens rather roasty and malty, the middle has a sweet maltiness and a clear alcohol tang. Finishes unpleasantly bitter. Still one of the better American attempts at Bock I have sampled.

I drank a whole bunch of this on tap last night, it’s not great but it was better than anything else that they had at the bar.
