2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

Bottle. Caramel nose, a bit of corn, chocolate. Orange-amber-brown color; clear, with a low head. Some grain in the flavor, caramel, grass, a bit of earth. A bit too sweet but not bad.

Smooth ale with nice hope to complement the grains. Medium carbonation that makes this a solid brew.

Pours odd dark caramel color. Sort of like a root beer color. Dark and clear. You can see through it. Tan head. One finger lacing. Short lived.
Aroma is of roasted malt, but barely. Some hops. Maybe a little toffee, and tree bark.
Tastes not a whole lot different than water. Thereís some hops bitterness. Maybe some toffee sweetness. But its more bitter than sweet.
Mouthfeel is very light. Very drinkable. More bitter than sweet. Pleasant bitterness at the finish....yeah. Watery, but satisfying.
Overall Iím not crazy about it. It is weak overall but finishes strong. It reminds me a lot of Budweiser. I could see myself drinking this again.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is one of my favorites, and has been since way back. Shiner has tried countless styles and none come close to this classic. The color is a deep dark amber. Very little hop finish. It has everything in a bock. The ONLY knock against this brew is it does have a slight after-taste once it warms up a bit.

Brown/amber in appearance, with decent (middle of the road) lacing and o.k. carbonation. Tastes of malts.
Definitely one of my go to beers when there isnít a selection

Bottle to shaker glass. Pours clear deep amber, small quick head. No lacing or retention. Aroma of faint toasted malt. Taste is sweet. Light bodied, average carbonation, thin mouth feel. Finishes dry. Tasting notes of toasted malt, grass, caramel. corn and wood. Very plain, not a Bock.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Old rating. Bottle from Old Town. Pours a clear amber color with a minimal off-white head. Slight caramel aromas with some molasses and a touch of dark fruit as well. Taste is slightly sweet and partially sour. Malt foward but still fairly well-balanced. Light body with average carbonation. Watery mouthfeel. Dry finish.

Flavourful without a bitter finish. There is a hint of hop after-taste, but itís not bitter which I find to be pleasant. This is an excellent balance of flavor in a light beer without having a bitter end.
