Shiner was my go to beer throughout college. It's an outstanding bock and there's a reason it always gets a gold medal in international beer festivals. At the price point, can't go wrong. Just don't let it get too warm.

I really like this beer. I picked up a 12 pack for $14 at the liquor store. You get what you pay for though. You definitely want to drink this beer ice cold. The warm it gets it starts to lose its appeal.

I would not call this poor by any means in my opinion. It's smooth and goes down easily. Not a very good but not a poor as I see in some ratings. Okay/pretty good is my score.

One of my personal favorites! Easy to drink, but complex enough to have multiples in one night.
