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.

UPDATED: SEP 22, 2016 Bottle - Pours a medium amber with fizzy, thin, white head. Aroma of caramel malt, but not much else. Flavors of light cracker, caramel malts, mildly hopped, with a hint of fruit. Thin.

Over all Shiner Bock is a nice clean mass produced beer with no unique characteristics. Good for drinking on a hot Texas day.

Pint, from draft. - This is most definately not a bock. Itís way too light and not malty enough. Itís a good malty plain lager though! Breadcrust and slight toffee dominates this malt-forward lager. Its okay.

Bottle. Rosy amber with a fast fading beige head. Aroma of prunes, bread crusts, a faint vinegar note - smells really quite like a kvass. Itís sweet and fairly plainly malty with some stewed fruit, but thereís a little helpful bitterness at the end. Just about OK.

Pours a deep brown from a bottle, very scant head. Sweet malt all the way through, one-dimensional and unoffensive. Meh.

12 oz. bottle. Pours amber with a small beige head. Aroma of mild malt and bread. Taste is similar. Bland. Drinkable in large quantities if you for some reason have the urge to do so.

sinfull (1460) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUN 10, 2016
Brown color. Thin , beige head. Aroma of bread and caramel malt . Same notes in taste . Too sweet and too carbonated to be really good. Almost kvas.

klaing (282) - Florida, USA - MAY 22, 2016
Dark tea with effervescent carbonation, no head. Mild nutty malts with mild herby malts. A mild bock overall but very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Shiner is probably one of my favorite beers ever, easy to drink. I prefer it to be a little flat
