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.

Pours deep copper with small white head. Aromas are sweet malts, grains, maybe some toffee. Lively carbonation, light body. Medium hoppy finish. Nothing exceptional here, but quite drinkable.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
This is an ABInBev brewery. Pours a deep clear amber with just a thin white foam. Malty aroma with hints of bread and grain. Body has a good malt flavor initially followed by some grassy hop. Gets more pronounced as it goes. May want to stick to just a first sip.

Soild but unspectacular, not a bad beer although i consider it a bock lite since it lacks the strength and robust flavor of a true bock. Its o.k. when you consider the price.

Pours dark copper with a bit of head. Clear. Yeasty aroma. Corn? Thin bodied. Pretty light. Low on bitter. Really not awful, just kind of bland. Could use hops.

6 oz pour from chilled bottle into shaker pint. Quite clear, light brown, moderate carbonation, and a bit of a thin head. Taste is a little nutty. Light body. Fairly weak overall, but nicely drinkable.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
no real aroma, maybe a faint barley. Taste is mostly just water. Some very, very faint toffee. the feeling on the palate is soda like.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2016 Pours a clear brown-amber with a quickly dissiapting, off-white head. Light nitís of fruit with some spoiling milk aroma. Moderately scrubbing on the tongue. Flavors approxinate the nose; though that rancid milk comes out even more noticably. One nearly has to try to make a commercially available beer this bad.
Addendum: I first reviewed this on 3/30/15. Had it again in NOLA on 1/16/16. Much better. I was impressed with how rich the flavor was of this bock. Iím adjusting my rating accordingly.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
No aroma detected but a faint sense of old barley. Average bock/amber color with a foamy head. Taste was somewhat bland with a slight toasted hint. Light palate with strong carbonation. Is it better than a macro pale lager? Is that saying much? No.
