Shiner is a Texas standard, not the best and not the worst. It is nice that it is in the northeast now so I can have a part of home when I want.

BB 020615 bottle at 40 degrees into shaker
Aroma of malt, weak
Head large (6 cm), off white, frothy, diminishing to 2 mm ring and center island
Lacing poor - few small islands of tiny bubbles
Body medium red-amber, clear, continual bubbles rising
Flavor of malt, weak; no hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate medium, watery, lively carbonation

Appearance 3.5, Aroma 3, Flavor 3.5, Palate 3.5, Overall 3.25
A very sessionable beer, mild flavor and aroma. Body is very attractive with the sun shining through but the lack of lacing is detrimental.

Amber in color, 1" off white head that dissipates quick. No lacing.
Faint aroma of grains, bready yeast, sweet corn.
Not much excitement in the flavor department. Taste followed the nose closely. Akin to drinking just about any other American amber adjunct lager.
Overall; As stated earlier, not much excitement drinking this beer. One of, if not THE, most mediocre bock beer I've ever had. Bland, light bodied and boring. You won't be missing much by passing on this beer, trust me.
