They say it has a rich taste, not really, more like a bud/miler/pbr/stc taste, plain would be a good description. It's a local beer for Texas and maybe after a hot day outside, grabbing one from the fridge would help you cool down. It was free so I can't say if it's like Bud with their 30 pack for $15, I'd pick a Bud Ice over this.

Nothing to see here. Pours iced tea brown with no head or lacing. Nose is light syrup. Taste light syrup, some Cheerios. Taste light/med sweet. Light watery body with medium carbonation. Not worth a return visit.

Not a bock. Ordered at a restaurant and was disappointed. Water would have been more interesting.

This is no bock. If it is its the lightest version. Don’t know why I drank this.... guess I had to see.

Bottle, pours dark amber with an off white head, sweet taste of malt and caramel but a little watery, it’s okay if nothing better is available

Walked into The Yard House (Newport Beach) on 13th April 2014 with a huge list of beers I wanted to try from their website: this was the only one they actually had available! Took my draught pint outside into the sun and ordered my next beers from one of the waitresses using the menu card. Anyway back to my first ever American Bock and second beer brewed in Texas. I wanted to love it, but that didn’t happen, it was fine though. Brown to amber in colour, tanned head, not much lacing. The nose was malty with some nutty bread hints with maybe a yeastiness below the surface. The taste was sweeter than the aroma indicated, malty molasses played on the tongue with caramel and light chocolate notes coming through. Medium bodied but not really ’Bock like’ as I know it.

From the can in Austin, no better way to slam this stuff. Slightly smoky scent, caramel malts. Very sweet roasty malt throughout. Med/light mouthfeel

Not bad, being from Texas I’ve had this beer for years. Funny though, I remember years ago Shiner was sort of a joke, in recent years they’ve risen to become a "top shelf" beer.
