Why didn't someone warn me?

It tasted like someone opened up a can of Miller Genuine Draft, brought it to a boil, added some table sugar and infected yeast then stuck it back in the bottle.

Hmm...I always thought it was pretty good for a commercial beer.

Well, it's probably pretty old by the time it gets up to WI. Shiner is one of those beers where you have to drink it within a certain "window". It goes skunky quickly, IMO.

I had a couple draught's the other night at Saltgrass for dinner. mmm, mmm good...

I have always thought Shiner was pretty good. Plus the Shiner Bock bread served with dinner is excellent as well.

An update:

The next day Loose Stool Lucy came for a visit. Either the beer doesn't transport well or something.

www.ratebeer.com has a pretty low rating as well.

Hmm, well Leinenkugel's Bock is very tasty. New Glarus has their Uff-Da Bock, but that is more german than american...still, a very tasty bock.

The stuff we get in Nebraska tastes ok, but I would agree that it tastes best in Texas. Love it with brisket.

I don't think it's that bad, but I'm definitely no fan. It's BMC, only slightly maltier. It's a good river beer though, since you can't take glass and we can't get Oskar Blues beer here. Like I said, it is slightly maltier. I'd say I get it just about as fresh as Texas does. And I have drank quite a bit of it.
