This is probably the worst beer I've ever had from the liquor store. It's a lot like drinking brown water with a little bit of alcohol in it. There's no taste whatsoever. I will never buy beer from Shiner again.

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.

Very disappointing beer.

It loks nice, a lovely brown with a finger of tan head. The head goes right away and leaves no lace, tho.

It smells like...absolutely nothing.

It tastes like near nothing. Maybe a little metal. Just bitter. Quite horrible, really.

Feels like water.

I'd alway heard good things about this beer, but I didn't like it at all.

Had on tap at bubba a grill in houston. Served in a big mug
Dark mahogany body with no head
Smells stale and skunked even though its on tap
Tastes catty like a beefed up bud
Medium carb
Just not even close style wise. Big disappointment. When I drink a bock I want sweet malt. This just tastes cheap
