Not what I was expecting. After years of being a southern thing along with Fat Tire, Shiner Bock has finally come up to CT. There was a lot of hype surrounding this beer and when I tried it, it was hard not to be let down. It was thin for a bock, with the smell of the wheat and a little grapefruit on the nose. The taste was similarly thin although very refreshing. I thought it was a pretty good beer but altogether forgettable.

Altogether this is a nice beer which tastes good and is easy to drink. It isn't all that particularly special, but it's a hell of a lot nicer than what you'd expect from most large American breweries. Definitely something worth having on hand for just about any situation.
