Can says it's ok till 42018. Interesting.

Pours a dark orange tinged maple brown and barely supports a whispy white cap leaving sheets of running lacing.

Aroma is subtle cereal if anything.

Flavor is malty sweet.

Mouthfeel is clean and almost crisp, but waery thin.

This won't hurt anyone.

Damn...if I hadn’t grown up in Shiner, Texas I would have rated it lower. Fuck you who doubt the Shiner Bock and God Bless Texas! Fuck yes! It’s a good bock beer for being mass produced. Light side, dark color. Very light hops and body. Bad, if I hadn’t have tasted others enroute to other less savory places in the world...but fuck you it’s my home town! Shiner all the way! Merrica’!!!

Great mix of a light American lager and barvarian dunkel.

Pours an amber color with a small white head. Smell and taste is of very faint grain and carmel. Mouthfeel is light bodied and easy to drink. Overall to watered down for my taste.
