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
Just not even close style wise. Big disappointment. When I drink a bock I want sweet malt. This just tastes cheap

I was very disappointed with this beer. It almost had no flavor. I thought it looked great when the bartender brought me over a tasting glass but was very surprised to taste almost nothing. A lot of carbonation and very light and almost no taste notes that my taste buds could pick up.

It is a sad day when the Micro's sell out to the big guys - And it has happened again. Shiner Bock - used to be a standard in Texas for quality Bock beer. The taste was rich and had a decent mouthfeel. They mostly had taste.
Now that the Sell out has occurred (Apparently to the Devil Anheuser-Bush) they have watered down this beer. The Color is still good and quite deceptive. The taste is nearly non-existent. Essentially a little more flavor than regular (American) Budweiser. But not much. This is a weak watery beer and a sad disappointment. The head is short lived and the aroma is nearly extinct as well. I would have recommended this onel highly about a year ago. But no way will I sully my wonderful reputation recommending this. Avoid it.
Oh Well - Another one bites the dust. : - (

A - Brew is very dark with nice clarity. Not too much head. No lacing. Below average.
S - Not too much of a scent... Very bland and bready.
T/M - Over carbonated. How do people drink/enjoy this beer??? There's no flavor other then light malt.
O - This beer is bad. Very bland and disappointing. Highly not recommended.

Served on tap at Dr. Dremo's in a pint glass.
Appearance: Clear light copper color with a smallish offwhite head that dissipates to a small ring of foam rather quickly. No lacing whatsoever.
Smell: Anemic aroma of roasted malts, corn, and precious little else.
Taste: Tastes like stale tortilla chops with some light caramel overtones. Light wintergreen aftertaste. Blech!
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, slightly crisp. Ho-hum.
Drinkability: I think I'd rather not repeat this experience ever again. Not the worst beer I've ever had, but certainly among them.
