Lone Star Bock has essentially no head, but one can get a thin, beige one if the bottle is swished & poured in. No lacing, here. The appearance is clear, highly bubbly, and amber. Aroma is faint, but one can detect some sweet caramel. Taste is of sweetness, lots of toffee, bread crust, and a touch of hop bitterness at the end. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Lone Star Bock finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, and quite drinkable. For a light-bodied bock, this is nice, and I would say it can be described at being very good.

Doesn't taste like much in the bottle. Pouring it into a pint glass is the only way to get the maple syrup-y smell and flavor. Once it's poured, it's a nice, drinkable beer. Not too sweet, so it doesn't get old after awhile. Decent beer, especially for the price.

I was raised on good ol' Lone Star. So, when I saw this I was all excited. I love Shiner Bock, so I was anxious to try this. I was a lil disappointed. Too much of a caramel taste. Kind of grows on you after 2 or 3, but still a disappointment. And for the price might as well buy Shiner Bock.

Apparently this is brewed under contract by Miller Brewing Ft. Worth under contract of Pabst so they can still have the "Brewed in Texas" logo on the beer.

12 oz bottle of this new Lone Star offering pours a clear copper color with a thin, off-white head. Not much for retention or lacing.

Nose is a pretty offensive combination of burnt toast, plastic and maybe at a stretch, caramel. Not good.

Taste is near-burnt caramel with a moderate sweetness. It’s not as bad as it smells, but it is not really all that tasty. It is better than Lone Star and Lone Star Light, but compared to its competition, Shiner has this beat pretty handily. Michelob Amber Bock and AB Ziegenbock taste equally as bad as this, but seem to have more flavor overall. It’s not horrible, but I really can’t see myself buying this again. Perhaps if it had the typical Lone Star price point of 3.99-4.99 per sixer, but at 6.99 (what I paid for it), no way, Jose.

Served in a Freetail 2012 shaker pint glass.

Thanks to twiggamortis420 for this bottle!

Shiner Bock, meet thy new neighbor and enemy, I guess. I dunno, it sounded all dramatic and shit in my head... Anyway, this stuff pours a clear amber topped by a small bit of short-lived off-white foam. The nose comprises French toast (lightly syrup-ed) and sweet flowers. Didn't see that coming... The taste holds notes of mild caramel, sweet flowers, a kiss of mild grass, and a vague sense of barley. This would actually be kinda nice if it weren't so painfully bland, as though they were trying only to intimate, to simulate flavor on a basically blank canvas. Perhaps it's a postmodernist statement? The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a slightly slick feel. Overall, an offensively inoffensive beer, if that makes sense. This stuff smacks of a marketing maneuver to get people to pick up something that's not called a light lager but doesn't stray all that far from the light lager template. I could stand to drink this stuff, but I doubt I would ever actively choose to do so. Like I said before, look out, Shiner: your bailiwick is being encroached upon...
