Slightly musty lager nose, amber color, foamy head. Sweet malt body up front with something like honey in the middle. Little bitter. Soapy mouthfeel and quick profile. Harmless overall.

Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 19, 2004
On tap at Maynards of Excelsior, MN. The appearance is a rather dull looking tea color with no head and no lace. I was not albe to pick up much aroma due to either the lack of one or the smoke in the bar. The flavor is malty like a Bock, but rather watered down, as is the palate. Overall, this is pretty marginal, but goes well with food.

Nice, dark amber color with a quickly disappearing head. Disappointing aroma and average taste make for a dull beer.

DerBiermeister (586) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - MAR 12, 2004
UPDATED: APR 1, 2004 This beer is pretty lacking. Its aroma is negligible, its appearance not much more than average, its flavour minimal, its palate less than regularbasisbuyworthy, and my overall impression thereof is...um...not terrific. The taste is just not very appealing and doesn't inspire any real desire to get this beer again.

Light amber color. Little layer of a head. Malty nose, medium average taste - malt. Suprisingly it doesnt't hurt.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 5, 2004
Well, this thing is finally in Portland, off tap even. Pretty normal brown color. Aroma? Don't think so. Taste is quite sweet, but the body doesn't balance out. Very drinkable, but nothing exceptional.

DEbeer (192) - West Virginia, USA - MAR 4, 2004
I guess Shiner really isn't that bad for a bock, but i really hate bock. The carmel sweetness is there, but the balance is lacking. For the style, Shiner has done a decent job.

I suppose this is what an american bock could be, but its not what I wanna see. a walnut/mohogany body, well carbonated with a thin white top. musty, funky and vegetabley with some breadiness and grain character. weak, but plenty of dmso. corn and flaked grains. something along the parallel of a huber bock. kind of warm with some ripe fruits on finish

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - FEB 29, 2004
In the bottle, this is usually the cheapest Beer of color in the store. Brown in color, decent short-lived head. Caramel color does not necessarily translate into flavor. Probably the most flavorful mass-produced beer in texas, but that's not much credit.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 27, 2004
Draft, shaker glass. A little bit of caramel, DMS, no hops. There's a hint of bock bite here. Lightly sweet flavor; grainy, husky finish. Medium-light body, watery texture, lively carbonation. The bottom line is: Texas can keep this one.
