a quality texas brew. i had already polished off about a 12 pack of shiner when we got to the ol' zb, so i'm not sure what it tasted like, but its made in texas, so it has to be good

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2003 Picked this up while doing a quick liquor run in Dallas. Seems to be more of the same: a decent amber color, but feels like water, has no kick to it at all, and flavor is completely one-dimensional.

Malty aroma. Amber color, very bubbly, small white head with no retention or lacing. Flavor is of herbs and malt. Finish is earthy and a tad skunky. Far too carbonated for my taste, which is distracting.

Bottle. Dark amber. Slick malty body but a watery aftertaste. A little musty and also has some caramel sweetness.

First I must second the suggestion to visit the Big Texan for steaks. You won’t be disappointed. Not much I can add, definitely a Shiner copycat. A beer to drink if moneys short and your not feeling adventuresome.

Indistinguishable from Shiner. Both characterized by the same lack of taste and general averageness. A decent beer if money’s short though.

Better than Shiner, and a little cheaper too. Great for everyday drinking when you don’t want the unique, expensive stuff.

I prefer this one to Shiner Bock. This is my Budweiser, by that I mean that when I am too broke to explore or buy better beers, this one still does the trick. Always easy to find on special when forced to go to 6th st.
