If you live in Texas, you know Shiner. You know that there are worse things to find in a fridge at a party or any type of gathering. If you want something solid, Shiner Bock will not disappoint. It may not be the most spectacular beer on the planet, or even something you should drive to Texas specifically to find. But if you walk into a party, and the fridge/cooler is stocked with Miller, Bud, Coors, and Shiner, reach for the Shiner every single time and you will not be upset about your choice.

This is the beer featured in country songs. Smoothest amber bock beer you can get under $10 a sixxer. Poors a good amber color with a nice foamy head. Mouthfeel is great and smells of hops and grains. Tastes like Texas. You show up at a party drinking this stuff and your guaranteed to get laid. This stuff is great. Shiner premium is also good to try. Anything shiner is good minus the farmhouse ale. Don't drink that crap. Shiner is guaranteed to make you a badass, get you laid, and put hair on your chest.

From a twelve ounce bottle, coded, no discernible date.

Aroma of caramel,malt. Pours amber brown body with quickly dissapating white head. Head reduced to thin non lacing film. Taste is rather bland and bready. Leaves an odd, alkaline aftertaste, but not unpleasant.really, nothing like I expected.
