Texans cannot brew beer yuck, yet they act like Shiner is gods gift to the earth. The beer is obviously dyed. Shiner beer doesn't stack up to even your most common domestic beer. Save yourself the trouble don't buy shiner, unless you like beer that tastes like syrup mixed with stale bud light.

A beer almost as bad as a sober moment in texas. When you have to add food coloring to a beer you are making it wrong. When they say everything is bigger in texas, they must be referring to the hype around this swill as well.

Presentation: 12 oz twist off- what, coke doesnt even use a twist off

Appearance: A pretty obviously fake dyed brown, little head, little carbonation very little evidence of depth.

Smell: Aroma of whatever is already in the room with a hint, hint of malt, they should probably call up DOW chemical and purchase some sort of aroma along with the coloring they add.

Taste: No body, a coors light mouth feel, with a hint of O'Douls amber. Unlike most bocks, gets much worse the warmer it gets.

Notes: the love for this beer in texas explains a lot about the state, get into an argument with a texan and they'll tell you how much better than bud it is, like that's an achievement that nobody else has reached and can't be topped. But hey, maybe in texas being slightly better than the worst macro swill american lager is something to be proud of.
