This is probably the worst beer I've ever had from the liquor store. It's a lot like drinking brown water with a little bit of alcohol in it. There's no taste whatsoever. I will never buy beer from Shiner again.

Rich, copper hued body with a thin yet lasting white head. Mild, roasted malt aroma; hazelnuts. Warm, nutty, caramel flavors; brown sugar. Smooth, medium bodied mouthfeel.

A decent enough beer though it comes across rather weak in all areas for a bock beer. It's especially odd to have such a relatively low ABV for a bock styled beer. This would make a pretty respectable amber lager or Vienna lager, but lacks the oomph and appeal of a classic bock beer. It's roasted grain and nutty flavors are a plus and makes the beer enjoyable enough for what it offers.
