This is what all the local fratboys here at UT drink when they want to ígo all outí on the keg. Anheuser is obviously trying to corral all of the Texans who strayed from their other crappy beers to drink Shiner. Pretty mild for an amber, little hoppiness. If I wasnt so bitter that Anheuser made it, I would like it more, but not that bad of a beer.

Your basic amber lager. Reminded me a lot of a Killians. Enjoyed this one while eating one of the best steaks Iíve ever eatin, at the tackiest restaurant Iíve ever been to. If you ever get a chance to go to the Big Texan in Amarillo Texas, I encourage you to go. Itís good for a few laughs and the steaks are awesome.

This beer is indeed Anheuserís answer to Shiner Bock and tastes pretty much like Shiner, except the Ziegen is considerably fizzier, which is a bad thing to me. Decent and Iím surprised A-B was able to pull this off.

Darker beer, like a Penn Pils, but this was very dissapointing for a bock beer. Enjoyed it at the GermanFest in Muenster, TX last weekend. Glad I tried it but donít recommend to bock fans.

Tastes like Shiner, but copying is better than sucking.

Very good. Lager-smooth with the flavor of a bock. I would not call this beer full-bodied or írich,í look for a darker beer for that. This beer delivers what you would expect of an amber beer.

Nearly impossible to get unless you are in TX or work for AB. I was able to score a case of this and I was not at all disappointed.

(bottle) I think this is a TX only beer from what I have heard. It was OK, with a slight bite. To me it was almost a twin of Shiner, to which I am not fond of. Every once in awhile though, it was a touch better than Shiner.

Iím a die-hard Shiner fan, but this is a pretty good beer. I little milder than I had expected. Goes down smooth. Nice dark amber color with good head and mild lacing. I still prefer Shiner.
