Appearance: Brown-amber, ok head but fades out quickly.

Smell: Toast, a bit of fruit.

Taste: Slightly sweet bread, a bit of fruit.

I used to have this occasionally in Missouri, it is not too common up here in Minnesota. A decent lawnmower beer if you want something different tasting than a pale lager. Not too strong, so you can have a few of them in a sitting. Nothing too special here.

Shiner Bock is a great going-out beer. In a pool-hall with the buds, or a strip club....whatever the setting. It's a great beer to grill with, both to marinade and to drink while you cook. Shiner is the beer of Texas, and not without good reason. Grab a 6er and try it out next time you throw a grill on, and see what I mean.

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.
