Better than Shiner, and a little cheaper too. Great for everyday drinking when you donít 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.

For something made by Anheuser-Busch, this isnít that bad. Deep copper color, but has the same pale white artificially carbonated head that every other macrobrew has. Has a very faint hint of sweetness, but canít compare to most bocks.

Michelob Amber Bock with a different label to make Texans think theyíre buying something exclusive to Texas. no better than Shiner. I gave this a low score for two reasons: it sucks AND it pisses me off. Hardly a bock, watery. This is nothing but deception.

Definitly a shiner copycat, with the ram and everything. Pretty sweet that A-B would make a brew specific to one state though.

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.
