Happy Hour: Shiner Bock

Last night I had a horrible, incurable hot flash. I opened the fridge to cool down and — to my glee — found Shiner Bock staring back at me.

If you aren't from Texas, you may not know Shiner, but if you are, then it's a household name. Shiner Bock is produced by the state's oldest independent brewing company, Spoetzl Brewery, which turns 100 next year. Shiner isn't the most complex beer to ever exist, but it's cheap, refreshing, and easy to drink.

Since the highly-carbonated, caramel-brown lager has a head that doesn't last long, it's delicious to guzzle right out of the bottle. It has little aroma and an earthy, malty, toasted flavor. Of course, it's perfect for a hot day, whether you're in Texas or not.

Have you ever had the chance to try Shiner? If so, what did you think of it?
