Who wants a Shiner? I do! The word shiner always sounded dirty to me. as in "I just got a shiner from a guy at the Vince Lombari rest stop on the turnpike." or "My girl was on the rag, so I had to settle for a shiner."
A lot of people write off Shiner Bock, but Its nothing to sneer at. It has a minimal head and carbonation level but that only serves to let you pound 3 or 4 of these tasty billy-goats. It lives up to the bock taste in its malty sweetness. and just look at that rich auburn brown color. Not everything has to be a work of art.
Feels good on the tongue, with an almost clean finish. A lot of drink ability for a bock I'd say, and I didn't mind its muted features.
Serving type: on-tap

Purchased from one of the local grocery stores.
A: A nice amber coloration. Unfortunately, the head is moderate at best and the retention is very poor.
S: Plain. The malt prevent in comparison to the hop, but still weak. That said, it is no way offensive.
T: Malty and sweet.
M: Quite crisp and refreshing. Heavy on the carbonation and thin.
O: A decent brew, but disappointing overall. I expected more.
Serving type: bottle
