3.25/5 rDev +3.5%
A- Dark amber almost brown. The head fades quickly and fails to leave behind any lace.
S- Hints of sweetness along with a crisp finish. There's still something in the aroma that reminds me of a BMC.
T- Sweet up front with a slight tartness that gives way to a hint of roasted malt. There is a faint earthy hop bitterness that lingers at the end.
M- Light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
D- Drinkable, nothing offensive, but not much going on.
This beer isn't bad, but it's not great either. I like the color of the beer, but it's virtually headless.

A=pours a dark copper color with a one finger head that dissipated before I was able to take a sip or smell.
S=Big on the caramel malt with a very faint hop aroma in the background
T=caramel malt, not too much else going on a faint hop bitterness in the finish
M=light body with very high carbonation levels make the beef pleasant on the tongue
O= Average in every sense of the word, a forgettable beer but it's widely available in areas In my state that traditionally only sell BMC

12 fl oz bottle served in a pint glass, reviewed live:
A - Pours a transparent amber/copper color. The head of 1.5 fingers seems creamy enough, but dissipates very quickly. Disappointing.
S - Caramel, clean barley, and not a whole lot else going on. Incredibly mild.
T - Follows the nose closely. Unimpressive caramel malt, a strange mineral taste, and a little bitterness near the finish. I miss the assertive malt character of a normal bock. Boring, even.
M - Way too crisp, and way too light for a bock. Doesn't work at all.
D - It's certainly drinkable, but I'd pass on this boring beer.

a thin tan head settles quickly on top of a reddish brown body leaving no lacing. smell and taste are both very caramel forward, not much else. once again shiner produces a thin watery over carbonated beer. overall not excited as some with this beer. goes down quick and smooth, just doesnt offer much for flavor other than being a malt bomb. once again i would like to see some hops to cut thru the sweetness of this beer.
