I had this one on the recommendation of the bartender at the Flying Saucer in Fort Worth & I quote, “it’s like Shiner Bock but tastes good…”.

The beer is a reddish brown with some sticky beige lacing.

It has a nose of caramel and grains. Nice and fresh.

The taste is slightly sweet and grainy. A bit of slowpoke sucker, apple and whole grain bread.

The mouth has a bit of heft and I enjoyed the low carbonation levels.

Nice bock, the sweetness would keep it to a once a night beer for me

On tap at the Common Table. The beer pours a reddish-brown color with a tan head. The aroma has a good bit of cocoa in it, as well as some light spicing. The flavor is similar. I get some chocolate and dry cocoa, as well as some spice and a hint of earth. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

No easily read date code

Pours a murked up brown with some floaties, with a thumb of tan head. Sediment settles down somewhat over time, great lacing & above average head retention

S: Dark fruit & faint brown bread notes

T: Brown bread, dryness & toffee, plus dryness up front. Dryness, toffee & little brown sugar, some leafy hop, & little pear as this warms, a little apple peel too, faint oxidation as well. Finishes with pear, leafy hops & more oxidation & some toffee, Became undrinkable once warm, a little sourness showed up as well

MF: Medium body, slight carbonation

Drinks alright up front, I suspect it is old. I would try again if assured I was getting fresh product

Long live Malts.
This is a good example of how interesting malts can be.
As other reviewers have noted, this beer is a bit on the sweet / sugar candy side, but I don't think that diminishes any if you appreciate sweet, malty beers.
The color and aroma are fantastic. Well worth the try. This is one of the better beers from this brewery that I've had so far.

12 oz bottle poured into tulip glass.

A - Pours a murky reddish brown with 1cm of beige head, which dissipates rapidly.

S - Sweet caramel and some smoky roasted malt.

T - Much like the nose, this tastes quite sweet with a major caramel note. There is a good amount of maple, some bread, and a good amount of roasted malt.

M - Thin-to-moderate body with low-to-moderate carbonation. Sticky mouthfeel.

O - One of my favorite bocks! If you're in Texas and want a good bock, forget Shiner and go for this!
