I was wondering if this was Bock-lite or Bock-by-Bud. It was billed as a local Texas craft beer. It was free. Even free, it was a bad deal ... hennes (934) - Fountain, Michigan, USA - JAN 25, 2003
Fizzy amber lager, not much bockish about it, similar in damp, light malty effect to the Shiner it emulates. drinkitup (13) - Spring, Texas, USA - JAN 24, 2003
a quality texas brew. i had already polished off about a 12 pack of shiner when we got to the ol' zb, so i'm not sure what it tasted like, but its made in texas, so it has to be good 3fourths (9347) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 15, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2003 Picked this up while doing a quick liquor run in Dallas. Seems to be more of the same: a decent amber color, but feels like water, has no kick to it at all, and flavor is completely one-dimensional. jazz88 (2679) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 26, 2002
Bottle. Dark amber. Slick malty body but a watery aftertaste. A little musty and also has some caramel sweetness.

Light brown, huge lasting off white head.Stale beery light malt nose.Light malt taste with slightly dry malt finish. Gassy and fizzy. No body Nastrass (58) - Texas, USA - NOV 8, 2002
First I must second the suggestion to visit the Big Texan for steaks. You won’t be disappointed. Not much I can add, definitely a Shiner copycat. A beer to drink if moneys short and your not feeling adventuresome. hoorayforbeer (105) - Denton, Texas, USA - OCT 25, 2002
Indistinguishable from Shiner. Both characterized by the same lack of taste and general averageness. A decent beer if money’s short though. uhorpheus (215) - houston, Texas, USA - OCT 8, 2002
Better than Shiner, and a little cheaper too. Great for everyday drinking when you don’t want the unique, expensive stuff. rlhubley99 (36) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 18, 2002
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.
