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.

    Very solid beer. Agree with the comments about it filling the gap when Guinness is a bit too filling. This is a great beer to have while grilling some brats and casually tailgating for a fall football game. Really enjoyable beer from the great state of Texas.

    Pretty much the best beer to come out of Texas. It has a great taste that stays with you and is very smooth. It isn't too heavy and Blakepoto is right, it goes great with pizza.

    This was good beer before I knew what good beer was. Moderate malt flavor. Fairly bland. Easy to pound. Wouldn't pick it up myself but if you hand me one. I would drink it

    Smooth and dark, this beer is good in any season. It is less bitter than some other bocks I've tried. I'd suggest it on draft, and let it get warm to really taste all of the flavors.
