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.

Beer pours a brown color with a bit of white head.

Beer smells mainly of malt, but nothing stands out.

Beer tastes slightly roasty and then finishes with a bit of caramel taste.

Moutfeel is very light and a good bit of carbonation.

Not a bad session beer.

3.03/5  rDev -3.5%

Poured from 12oz bottle into SABL perfect pint.

A. Pours 2 finger head. Decent retention. Moderate lacing. Color is an amber brown.

S. Moderate caramel and bready malt aroma. Has a bit of hop bitterness.

T. Has a bit of peaty malt flavor. Pretty bland to be honest. Has a slightly sweet malt flavor with a bit of hop bitterness. Strangely has a bit of citrus fruit flavor?

M. Light body. Medium/low carbonation.

O. Pretty light bodied, little aroma, and little flavor. Overall average beer at best. Definitely want more flavor than shiner bock delivers.

Poured this Bock from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. This Bock poured a reddish brown color, produced a very thin off white head and it disappeared instantly. Poor Head retention. The aroma consists of some malted grain and not much else- No hops any other scent to speak of. Medium in body, this bock features some toasted grain flavor, just a slight hint of sweet caramel- Not much to get excited about here- i guess i would prefer this to say AB's Amber Bock. Not a bad brew to try once. Prost!
