Shiner Bock

I've been to Texas numerous times. Seems that Texans greet you at the gate with Shiner beer.You could say that I never refused and have had my share (and you'd be doubly right). Now, Shiner has returned to South Florida recently.

Wasn't long ago I was drinking a Shiner Bock in my living room. I didn't remember being in love with it. This beer is like the Budweiser of Texas I guess because of its availability. Brewed by the Spoetzl Brewery in Shiner, Texas, the brewery brags that "every drop of Shiner is brewed in Shiner". Well, these guys have been around for 100 years, so someone is drinking their beers. Let's go!

The aroma is fruity and earthy, smells lightly sweet. Flavors start out with malty caramel, with dirty and grainy flavors backing that up. Some fruity pear and apple flavors also show up in the profile. Medium to upper-level carbonation is noticeable as well. Not hoppy at all and the flavors remain on the sweet, yet not overly sweet, side. You will finish with a small dose of metallic flavors mixed with more fruitiness. Refreshing, crisp, easy drinker. This is a not a spectacular or memorable beer, but it deserves its dues. It's pretty good!
