This is the first Bock Iíve ever tried and I think I like the style, but I canít say this was a premium example of it. It was certainly passable, but didnít have much in the way of taste or mouth-feel. I enjoyed the maltiness that was present, and thatís always a sure way to up my rating of a beer. Still, it wasnít as good a beer as Iíve had in the past. I will try the style again, must definitely, but I doubt Iíd try Shiner Bock unless every other style of beer I like were unavailable. So that does mean Iíd give it another go; itís not bad, just really, really low on my cravings list.

PapaSkeetSkeet (918) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - JAN 26, 2015
lightly hazy deep amber with film of egg-shell-colored head. Aroma of strong lager flavor, slight airport bathroom/urine (in a pleasant way ;), lemon grass, grainery. Body is medium-light, grit-watery texture, moderate carbonation, moderate-to-moderate-heavy burn. Flavor is lager, touch of raw wheat grain, wet hay, crisp and pleasant finish. Flavor is more enjoyable than the aroma. Body isnít bad. Needs more head and heft in the flavor.

Pours a nice amber color with a small head. Lots of malt flavor, but a bit thin on the mouthfeel.

czar (4768) - Quťbec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 23, 2015
pours clear dark golden with a very small light beige cap, minimal retention and lacing. sweetish toasted maltiness, some fruitiness - aroma has lager-like mellowing notes - cherries perhaps, dusty yeastiness, plain sweetness - brown and barley caramelized sugars, some grass, metal. light carbonation, light body - slightly watery, sweetish, chalky and grassy-herbal finish. blah.

tekstr1der (41) - New Hampshire, USA - JAN 21, 2015
Pours light brown with large-bubbled head which disappears completely. Aroma is malty, bready and pleasant. No bad flavors; more malt, caramel and bread. Very light, not complex, but really not bad. I could drink this all night and not complain.

Dark with medium head. Bready and malty. A decent beer that I really liked back in the day

loubar (113) - Los Gatos, California, USA - DEC 30, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Cost Plus. Clear dark brown color with a head that thins out quick. Mild malt aroma.Taste is of sweet, bready malt up front with a crisp lager taste in the middle leaving a lingering sweetness in the mouth after its gone. It hasnít got much in the way of hop bitterness or explosive flavor, but itís not supposed to. I found this to be an excellent, drinkable lager beer.

Bottled. Pours a brown/amber caramel color. Small head. Aroma is malt, caramel, a little bit of green apple note?or citrus maybe. Little hop character. Flavor is malty and caramely. Not bad. Refreshing. Definite lager quality. Not bad.

Not very satisfying. Nothing stands out about this beer. Pleasant but not memorable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Obfuscate (133) - Minneapolis, - DEC 12, 2014
Very solid session beer if you like a Bock. Good beer to eat with food. Little caramel and roasted malt. Nothing to blow your mind but itís not meant to.
