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.

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

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.

Maxbier (398) - Maryland, USA - NOV 29, 2014
Clear brown with quickly dissipating tan head. Light orange malt aroma. Flavor is sweet caramel malty with medium carbonation. Easy drinking friendly beverage, not vert interesting but nothing offensive, nothing off. Pleasant surprise. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

skmikeg (999) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - NOV 26, 2014
Pour clear light amber with virtually no head. Aroma is of toasted malts, caramel, sweet malts, and very light grassy hops. Taste is pretty much the same as the aroma. Has a medium-light body with a semi watery mouthfeel and a mostly sweet, medium-short finish. Overall, a rather mediocre beer that is however very drinkable.

ajnepple (2541) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - NOV 16, 2014
On tap at Brooks Place Tavern. Amber-brown and pretty clear appearance with a beige head. Aroma and flavor of toffee, caramel and bready malts. Medium plus sweetness and minimal bitterness. Smooth and sweet, but not that good.

thin to virtually no head on this beer. Donít know if it was just the bottle I had or whatever. Aroma is sweet bread. Also a little fruity.. I could have sworn grape, which I thought was also in the flavor. Also some hops and spices.

friends of mine told me I needed to try this beer. Iíve since realized that they are not my friends. This may pass as a good beer when youíre huddled with a bunch of cattle on the prairie, but not any where else.
