I had this beer while I lived in Texas. A local favourite. Not a whole lot going on here. This may have been considered a tasty beer pre-microbrew era, but nowadays it is only slightly more interesting than the big name lagers. Good if you wanna consume en masse at a party.

A: Isn't dark at all for a bock, but it has a nice brownish gold color to it
S: Do not smell too much with this beer. Left something to be desired as I was hoping it would smell more like a strong lager
T: Very drinkable. Nice balance of darker lager tasting notes with some slight hoppy after tones. Not too much complex flavors happening, but could definitely be a great session beer because of its drinkability. Malts are roasted, but are not burnt or over roasted.
M: Pretty standard. Nice amount of carbonation. Not overwhelming, but almost underwhelming as far as bocks are supposed to be
O: If I found a relatively cheap case of Shiner Bock I would not be opposed to drinking a plethora of them in one sitting (hence the drinkability). But for the beer nerds and connoisseurs out there I would not seek out this beer over some of the other options. Worth trying, but nothing spectacular.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on August 11, 2014.
The pour is fairly attractive with its dark mahogany pour leading up to a modest off-white head.
The aroma is very sweet and caramel-malt based with perhaps some butterscotch and clean crisp hops, albeit feint.
The taste tends to bring out the malty sweet notes more than anything with only the slightest bitter finish. It tastes like something from the 1960's.
