Thanks to my future sister-in-law for this one. This wasn’t bad for a Busch product. A Shiner Bock wonnabe. Had a very slight malt taste to it. Besides taht tasted like a beer.

Thanks to my pal Dan, dberger624, for sending me this Texas Bock!

So, Shiner Bock is such a big seller in TX that AB had to invent a competitor???? That’s just F-ing LAME!
Actually pours a deep dark crimson body, with a ring of tan lacing. The aroma is sweet, malty, some burnt toast and honey. The flavor brings a week but present notes of molasses, some toffee malts… very much a dark lager.. Actually, it far better than I had anticipated, especially for being an AB product, one of their better beers!

Thanks to Smeagol who carted this home from Texas for me. Could have picked something better though. First thing that stood out about this beer is the strange color. Looks unnatural to me. Kind of a dark orange/brown. I am sure that the color was not generated naturally. Thin had with ok carbonation. Sweet malty aroma with a hint of cat urine (nice). Flavor has a hint of roastyness to it. Mostly malt and a little chalky. Maybe a little bit of nuts also. Kind of chewy aftertaste that makes you slosh your tongue around for a while. An ok beer for ABC but not for any self respecting beer producer.

Small head. Faint sweet aroma. Fizzy and a little fruity. No hops, some nutty flavors.

Metallic, slightly nutty, slightly toasty. Pretty much a Shiner Bock twin.

Found this at some hole-in-the-wall grocery store in Fort Worth. It's kind of like Shiner Bock, but a lot more bland and adjunct-ish. Better than most A-B efforts.

Possibly the best beer that Anheuser-Busch makes. A dark color. It is smooth, but it has very little head, even from the tap. A slight taste of hops.

hmm, AB trying to make a "micro" brew here. Smelled and tasted like stale cardboard made into malt! I still had to try it since i was in Texas this weekend.

Half-decent, but nothing mind-blowing. Virtually no head, much like my married life. Very smooth finish with a hint of caramel. Really, it tastes like a darker version of the mass-produced American Standards. Cool bottle though.

Nothing incredibly special about this beer. Nice deep amber color, not much head or lacing. A little hoppy but very little body in this beer. Not much to it. This beer has nothing on Shiner. Too thin and watery.
