12oz Brown bottle with twist-off cap. Poured into a mason jar glass

Appearance: Pours a clear, deep amber with a finger of head that quickly dissipates

Smell: Caramel malts and faint hop aroma

Taste: Similar to the aroma with cracker malt up front, slight hop bitterness, and a clean, sweet finish

Mouthfeel: very watery compared to a traditional bock

Overall: Judging this beer as a bock will give it very low scores, but this beer is a great lager for warm days, tailgates, and hanging with friends. Its easy drinking and quite enjoyable. If this is priced the same as macro beers than this is great, but I really don't like Shiner trying to market itself for more than what it really is. I always pass it up if its more than $8-9/six pack or more than $13/12pack.
