In this beer blog, we are going to sample the flagship from Shiner. It is their Bock. If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this Texas base craft brewery. If you have not, please, read them to get to know this American classic craft brewery. Let us get into this bock.
It is not a see through beer. It has a reddish-brown color without a head. The aroma is pretty faded. It is hard to pick up but I believe it is a sweet malty notes. The taste of this medium body has a power of malt but it has some sweet malty notes with hints of nutty notes. The aftertaste has a sweet malty dry finish. It is a drinkable beer.
Here is a description from the beer bottle:
Bock Beer combines old world bavarian heritage with American handcraft brewing for a smooth, delightfully drinkable dark beer.
Handcrafted in this same brewery where it was first made back in 1913, this genty hopped medium brown brew is the pride of Shiner, Texas.
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
Ending, this is an American classic brew. I do not know anyone that does not like this brew. This brew has everything. It is drinkable and has some flavor. It is not really missing much. I love it. I just wish it was a little bit bigger here in Michigan. I normally go out of my way to get to this beer during football season. I highly recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
