Commercial Description

Shiner Bock is a distinctive, rich, full-flavored, deep amber-colored beer. Its handcrafted brewing process creates an inviting smooth taste without the excessive bitterness that characterizes many micro, specialty and imported beers.

    Each batch is carefully infused with honey just before fermentation. It is aged longer to ensure a full creamy head and a mellow aroma, with just a hint of sweetness.

    When I moved to Texas in 2001 this beer was all the "rage". Unfortunately, this beer is representative of false advertising and a palate that is accustomed to light beer. First, it's not a bock - a bock is a full flavored beer around 7% ABV. This light weight 4% beer is nothing more than a dark colored american lager. The flavor profile is nothing of a bock, something I find very disappointing from a supposed traditional german brewery in a traditional german community. If you're looking for a lawnmower beer with color, here you go. If you're looking for a beer with a "distinctive, rich, full-flavor" as the commercial description suggests, you'll need to look elsewhere. Also... the taste is characteristic of a macro brew, not any micro, specialty, or import.

    If the idea behind a rating is to give your personal favorite five stars across the board, then Shiner Bock definitely gets my five stars. My favorite beer hands down. A Texas favorite I've been drinking for years. Great flavor, not much bite, I can sink em' fast when pitching washers.

    Shiner Bock is really a beer for all seasons. The malts hit early and don't fade, and though I usually go hoppier, this finishes relatively crisp for a dark beer. I do prefer to let it warm up a bit, I just rarely have the patience.

    I could drink this stuff like Kool-Aid it does down so smoothly. An enjoyable drinking experience. One of the few beers that makes me reach immediately for another one.

    i want to like this beer, since i've lived in texas for six of the past ten years, and everybody and their dog seems to love it, but it just isn't that good. it's heavy and makes me want to take a nap. i want to have a beer or three and have fun, not zonk out.
