Had straight from bottle so just giving a mid level appearance here. Easy drinking beer with plenty of flavor for a cheap price. Dark malts, some sweet molasses, and a slight adjunct lager aftertaste. Easy drinking and a good alternative to the macros at a BBQ. Certainly worth drinking with plenty of dark malt flavor to feed the taste buds. Not bad.

As someone who really enjoys German style bocks I was disappointed. It was light, nutty (more like a brown beer), a bit watery and lacked defining flavours. It is an
easy drinking American beer that tastes like it is from a big brewery. It will work with a burger but don't bring it out to impress friends.

12oz bottle in a standard pint glass.
A- See-thru brown color, some amber. Off-white head is minimal yet leaves lots of sticky blotches of lacing ( I'll learn that it's from the sugars). Lots of bubbles.
S- Sweet malts, minerals.
T- Brown sugar and malts. Mineral or metallic.
M- Light and syrupy. Mucho carbonation.
O- I want to like it, but it is just too sugary sweet for me.

A - Somewhere between amber and brown. No head retention and no lacing.
S - Bready malts, and brown sugar, and grass.
T - Very metallic. I don't remember it being this metallic. The bready bock taste is there with a little bit of sweetness. But then the metal comes back.
M - The feel is very crisp and carbonated.
O - There is nothing offensive about this beer, but it's not all that great either. As uninspired as it is, it's super drinkable, even as it warms. This was definitely one of the "gateway" beers for me. Growing up in Texas, I thought Shiner was the end-all, be-all for beer. Maybe it's gotten worse, or maybe my taste buds have matured. Either way, it's not something I would seek out anymore. Still, it holds a special place in my heart and is definitely a step or two above the macros.
