I was wondering if this was Bock-lite or Bock-by-Bud. It was billed as a local Texas craft beer. It was free. Even free, it was a bad deal ...

Fizzy amber lager, not much bockish about it, similar in damp, light malty effect to the Shiner it emulates.

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

3fourths (8554) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 15, 2003
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.

JMerritt (1887) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - JAN 9, 2003
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.

Crit (3534) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 12, 2002
Light brown, huge lasting off white head.Stale beery light malt nose.Light malt taste with slightly dry malt finish. Gassy and fizzy. No body

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.
