This is one of my favorite beers! Need I say more? Oh but I will. I've had Shiner Bock on tap a couple of places and more often than not the tap hasn't been as good as the bottle. Shiner Bock obviously has a little more sugar than most beers and it has a slight sweet taste, but is still very refreshing. I took a backpacking trip into the mountains of West Virginia last weekend and hadn't had a beer in a couple of days. All I could think of on the hike out was the Shiner Bock in my cooler. It tasted like liquid joy, I thought my companion the black dog was going to take it off me and drink it himself. It's a bit darker in appearance than I once thought the perfect beer would be, but now that dark amber is my favorite color. The smell is light and appealing, not too aromatic, but with enough weight to make you anticipate what is to come. The taste, is slightly sweet with a hint of molasses and caramel, without being too sweet. Shiner Bock goes well with wings, ribs, crabs or anything a beer is supposed to go with. The feel in your mouth is light enough to want to drink several, but heavy enough to know you have. Overall, an superb surprise from right here in the USA.
I've got a couple good buddies who feel like I do. So you beer snobs can have your beer that no one can find, spell or stomach, I'll take a Shiner Bock and I'm not even from Texas.
