This is the first Bock I’ve ever tried and I think I like the style, but I can’t say this was a premium example of it. It was certainly passable, but didn’t have much in the way of taste or mouth-feel. I enjoyed the maltiness that was present, and that’s always a sure way to up my rating of a beer. Still, it wasn’t as good a beer as I’ve had in the past.
I will try the style again, must definitely, but I doubt I’d try Shiner Bock unless every other style of beer I like were unavailable. So that does mean I’d give it another go; it’s not bad, just really, really low on my cravings list.

Pours a pretty deep amber with a sticky two finger white head. Somewhat musty aroma with mild caramel and metallic continental hop notes. Crisp metallic finish. ZodiacM (1160) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 18, 2017
LCI. Poured from the bottle. Nice bock, malty with caramel, reasonable tasty, not bad. jrobins422 (1) - - MAY 14, 2017 does not count
A real pleasure to drink without filling you up like other dark beers. Smooth notes of hops, with no bitter taste.

12 oz bottle poured a deep amber with a bright white head aroma of cereal and honey taste was cereal and malt with a crisp finish. Mindwarp (276) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 5, 2017
Pours a dark amber with a thin white head. Aroma is sweet and malty but not very strong so it’s hard to elaborate. Taste is also sweet and malty, feels kind of thick but turns watery reel quick. It’s an easy beer to drink but nothing special. Aggiebob (1121) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - DEC 16, 2016
Draft. Amber color with a white head. Malty aroma. Caramel taste. First shiner since ’89.
