Flavor is a bit lacking, fairly light almost watery for a bock, land a bit to close to an American-style macro lager, a bit more malt to it then that, that but not a lot more. Light toasted-barley and caramel notes to it with a ghostly hint of black tea and faintly metallic quality to it. Very faint trace of hops on the back-end enough to taste it but not enough to really get an impression of flavor. Light bodied with a slightly lower carbonation. Not much of a Bock-style beer but lighter and easier drinking, a bit more malt flavor to it then an average macro lager but, it feels like the closest comparison.

Shiner Bock taste too much like Budweiser. I expected more of a dark lager like in Germany. All it delivered was a very hoppy American Beer. Not at all a Bock which the name suggests. Only a faint bitter taste and the an odd after taste.

If you want a Bock style beer look away from this beer.

A great beer for a hot summer day when 1-2, then 3 and 4 .... then 5 or 6 or SEVEN are not enough!

Pours amber with an off white head. there is a sweet malt aroma with the first smells, Its a very light bodied beer with sweeter flavor. very crisp and refreshing for the style. It is a very seasonable beer.

Not as sharp of a taste as a normal bock. Almost tastes like a miller lite and a blue moon had a kid
