GUEST POST: Shiner Bock

Beer: Shiner Bock
Brewery: Spoetzl Brewery
Style: Bock
ABV: 4.40%

Serving Style: Bottle
Glassware: Tulip glass
Drinking Establishment: Stuff Yer Face, New Brunswick, NJ
Primary Consumer: Todd
Guest Reviewer Qualifications: He knew that Shiner is brewed in Texas, and he didn’t even have to look it up on his smartphone.



Sight: Dark copper color. Initially a finger’s height of head, which dissipates rather quickly.

Scent: Slight yeasty scent; overall, underwhelming.

Flavor: Very mild flavor; not bold by any means. Has an undesirable aftertaste.

Feel: Light bodied, moderately carbonated. Easily drinkable.

Concluding remarksAmongst the Bocks consumed this night, in my opinion, I drew the short straw with this beer. The dark color got my hopes up for something flavorful and bold. I was disappointed. Not necessarily a bad beer, but by no means great. In the mood for something light, and a fan of Bocks? Sure, why not? Have this one. But I wouldn’t request this again unless there were some slim pickin’s otherwise.


THANK YOU, TODD! Sorry you drew the short straw with this brew; but rest assured that although your beer didn’t shine that night, your photography skills certainly did.  I’m sure Jon and his boli would agree.

We are always looking for interested and interesting beer consumers to review a brew we might not have seen or had time to review in the month. Let us know if you’d like to contribute something, in exchange for internet fame, a line on your resume, an unpaid internship, a free ride, a huge tax rebate, a happy ending, and everything else everyone else has promised you in life. Sounds like a sweet deal to me.  Email us at!
