Which one makes the better tasting beers, Shiner or Holsten?

Honestly haven't tried Holsten. Is this a Canadian brew? What type of beer? Lager? Bock? Ale?

edit: Nevermind, I Googled it and found it's a German lager. Looks much too light for my tastes.

They make several different kinds of beer. The Festbock is far from light, and it comes with a 7% punch. Can you handle it? :-)

Oh yeah...now you're talking. That's a bit like the Celis Grand Cru, a Belgian white beer at 6%.

Hehe---. I'm going to see if Shiner's sold locally to try a bottle (or a can). In the meantime, I'm sucking on a tall can of Holsten Premium. It's an in-between type of beer and with only a 5% punch. Goes down smooth. :-)

No Shiners in Vancouver...so I'm drinking a Holsten - a strong Teutonic brew.

Kokanee - smells like perfume. Pacific Pilsner is a way better.

Sure, it's brewed in Rochester and I had it from time to time when I lived in upstate NY. Never was much of a favorite of mine though.

But you Canadians have lots of great beers and ales! Mooseheads, Molson Golden, Molson Canadian and Labatt's Blue are big favorites of mine :-)
