every time a new one comes out I get it. the Ruby was the only one i did not care for. I liked the 98 ALOT as well as the 99. The Bock will always be a fallback but I enjoy most of thier stuff. The tour is fun too!

I'm a big fan of Shiner as well. The 2010 cheer is actually a huge favorite of mine. Never tried the 2009. Also, my buddies and I love the smokehouse on a hot day. The blonde and the bock are good as well. Not sure why the cheer has taken such a beating. I found it to be the best winter seasonal I've ever had.

I didn't like the ruby red - too much ginger.

I think cheer is a nice departure from the usual holiday beers that are full of spices (no hating on them). I can see how some people would be turned off by it though.

I love their Smokehaus, and wish some would come out this year. That is my favorite brew that they make.

And their Blonde is always welcome in my place. And like a bunch of others here I really liked the Dortmunder.

Shiner is a solid, available beer that is better than miller/coors/inbev options, i like their anniversary series, the Alt, and blonde, but there are better beers.

So does it have less body than the bock? Does it have a different taste?

Black Lager defiantly has a different taste. There are a lot more toasted grains in it.

I wish Shiner made a pale bock. I cant find anybody that does that I can buy commercially.

I tried there reunion variety 6 pack not too long ago. It included the following: Hefewiezen, brewers pride, kosmos reserve, bock, black lager, and blonde.

Of the six, I enjoyed Hefewiezen(though not really a true hefeweizen), kosmos reserve and brewers pride.
