A - Looks OK for beer, a little on the dark side, but as a bock, it should be.
S - There is almost no detectable smell to this beer at all. It could be caramel colored water for all I can tell.
T - Shiner Bock has very little flavor, but to its credit, it doesn't have any bad flavors, either.
M - Mouthfeel is OK but I was hoping for more.
When I pay a premium price for beer, I expect to obtain a premium beer. Shiner Bock is a serious disappiontment, because it sits beside the likes of Sierra Nevada and Sam Adams. I should have bought one of those.

Pours a clear, golden brown with a fizzy, short lived off white head.
Lightly grassy floral notes muddled with a bready, caramel malt backing.
Medium body, fizzy carbonation.
A decent beer, nothing particularly exciting, but easy drinking, and pleasant.

On-tap at $4 a pint.
Appearance: Brown. Plenty of clarity. Not much head, and virtually zero lacing. Looks alright, I guess.
Smell: Malty. Slightly roasty. No hop aroma, really. Just has a cheap sort of smell, but it's not off-putting or anything like that. Again, alright.
Taste/feel: For a third time, it's okay. It has a thin feel with a moderate prickly carbonation. Caramel malts and the like with a slight roastiness as well. Sweet, not bitter at all... mediocre, and pretty uninteresting.
Short review for a beer that doesn't require a long one. It's a beer that... just... it is what it is. Affordable, decent, nothing-at-all-special beer. Sweet, quite thin, a good amount of carbonation, not very interest piquing. Probably wouldn't buy it again.
Serving type: on-tap
