Goes down good with Bar-B-Q, I’ll tell ya whut. A decent, somewhat sweet, generically dark beer. huskerbrewmeister (4) - Nebraska, USA - SEP 25, 2004 does not count
Shiner Bock is a decent beer available in Texas and in the Midwest. It beats the pants off Longhorn. I grew to like it. redmosquito (172) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - SEP 23, 2004
A nice bronze color with an off white head leaving occasional lacing. Interesting aroma of caramel malt, peppery yeast, and then a grapevine/raison like scent. Clean malty taste, not hoppy or bitter, and then a wine like finish. Good mouthfeel. A nice beer that I’d order again. danku71 (1) - Washington, USA - SEP 20, 2004 does not count
22 oz. bottle. This tastes like busch light with brown food coloring in it. AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - SEP 19, 2004
Disappointed by this one... tastes more like a malt liquor than a bock. Too sweet, and really not much else.

Copper in color with a bit of red, musty hop metallic aroma. Malty metallic flavour. For a beer called a Bock it’s light bodied and very boring. It's always amusing to try a macro style Bock... iratherbe (255) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - SEP 15, 2004
Better story on the label than the beer in the twist-off bottle, though not too shabby. A bit thin, certainly nowhere near full flavored, an attempt at some malty sweetness, more color than body yet indeed drinkable. Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 15, 2004
Appearance: clear bronze, with an admirable, bone-white, 1/2" froth.
Aroma: mild, even nearly negligible, with tiny hints of nuts and caramel.
Taste: rather flat and blase, flinty, even, at first, a nothing of a mouthfeel with very minor character. Mighty quick finish. Leaves the palate rather dryly. Flavor possesses traces of those nutty, sweet, malty characteristics, but they’re just a faint whisper in the wind. Malt is dominant, as much as such a mild-mannered component can be, and hops don’t seem to be around at all.
Not a beer I’d ever feel like drinking again, but I’d slug it in a pinch. Considering it’s popularity in it’s home state, I’m rather relieved that certain Texans are choosing this instead of Lone Star.

Most repulsive Bock EVER. Very unbalanced, just tasted somewhat funky and out there. Roasty and Malty. 11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - SEP 11, 2004
Bottle. Fairly average to slightly below average bock. Perhaps compromised by production. Nothing special.
