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."

Right then.

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
