I'm 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.
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2017 Not a bad beer. I think people confuse this with a traditional boch when it is more of a red/amber. Better the Amberboch. JohananaV2 (278) - Hurst, Texas, USA - JUN 5, 2017
If it's summer time and you need a refreshing beer to drink that doesn't taste like piss, go for this one. It's light enough with plenty of flavor and is amazing on tap

Complimentary beer at the embassy suites north dfw. Poured into a plastic glass, Amber hue, minimal head. Lost of toasted malt, mild grass. Medium mouth. Okay. rgf001 (325) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 21, 2016
No significant aroma, no hops or malt. Quite estery for a lager. The primary flavor is a light caramel, not appropriate for a Vienna.
A bad copy of a Shiner bock, which is not a great beer to begin with. Bronzan (158) - Windsor, California, USA - JUN 27, 2016
Had some of these at the house, then a bunch at a Rangers game. Enjoyed them more than most ambers. Fairly clean. Not terribly malty.

Pours a bronze/amber color. About two fingers tan colored head. Slight retention, very slight lacing. It is amber, but clear.Pershing (594) - Garland, Texas, USA - APR 3, 2016
Aroma is quite malrty. I smell medium roasted malts ,caramel, perhaps floral hops.
Tastes good. Nothing wrong with the taste, it’s just...there. Sweet, not so malty though. Artificially sweetened? Weird. Metallic twang at the end. Something is not right.
Mouthfeel is light and refreshing. That’s about all I have to say about that.
Overall, it’s a beer that’s more amber than Bock. Not terrible. It’s good enough to drink again, but it’s not something I’ll be looking to buy. I’m not going to say to avoid it, but if you haven’t tried it, really, you’re not missing anything.
Dark amber with a thin white head. Lively carbonation. Thin body with a smooth mouth feel. Light caramel taste with hardly any noticeable hop bitterness although it’s there. Clean refreshing finish. Not bad for a Texas macro bock. cagou007 (1234) - FRANCE - JAN 16, 2016
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. kathouse (1942) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - DEC 21, 2015
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. BeerRenter76 (1053) - Texas, USA - NOV 4, 2015
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.
