1.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured into a pint glass. A transparent copper color with half finger of head that was bubbly and short-lived.
Smells faintly like wet hay. It has an unpleasant smell too, hard to place but not nice.
Mild malt sweetness at first, a faint touch of bitter (not really bitter, but less sweet). Watery taste overall.
Medium body, moderate carbonation, unremarkable.
This was difficult because I used to drink Shiner all the time years ago when I lived in Corpus Christi because it was the only beer with some flavor to it. Itís a caramel colored American lager with a little less carbonation and a touch of sweetness.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Dark copper pour. No head to speak of. Highly carbonated, think body. Toasted malt aroma, bland taste. Bleh.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bronze orange color. Little head. Taste of malt, yams, copper bread, and salty cheese. Good considering the low abv. One is plenty, or forever.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass,
Aroma- Has a slight doughy aroma with a floral hop backdrop
Appearance- An amber to dark brown color, Slight off white head that does not linger.
Taste- A nice malt flavored beer with some bitterness
Palate- A medium bodied beer with a medium carbonation level. This pairing works for me
Overall- A pretty good bock style beer. If someone has not experienced this style of beer I would recommend that they try this one first, I think this is a nice mid-range flavor for this style

Pleasant caramel malt taste. Smooth wit h no bitterness. Mild malt aroma. Clear dark brown color with a head that thins out quick. Surprisingly refreshing for a dark beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2014 Pours clear chestnut brown, brief fizzy head. Aroma is beery... that aroma you get when walking into college beer hall... yeasty dough. Flavor is lightly sweet malt. Palate is a little like drinking root beer (with less fizz). For a beer it is watery. It?s not bad - straight forward, barley pop.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Reading Phils game. Medium amber pour under a thin light tan head. Simple, a little sweet, malty flavor, nothing too heavy or sticky. Good for a ballgame, but nothing amazing.

Decent product. As a Texan I am a little biased to the product. I believe that Shiner is an average beer at best that is worth trying if you are looking to expand your horizons to lagers within the United States. Other than that, not much more to write about.

Like PBR with caramel color. Has nothing whatsoever to do with a Bock beer.

While their are plenty of other beers that iíd prefer over this one, this is old faithful. Although it doesnít taste all that great, this is a piece of home. When I was traveling for work for extended periods of time, this was a little piece of home that i was able to enjoy in the pacific northwest.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Okay malt and nut aroma. Has almost no head but a nice brown copper body. Flavour is a bit of dry malt with a medium finish. Itís a rather boring bock.
