A - Very thin reddish appearance. Typical for this style
S - A classic bock style with lots of dark fruit, a hint of something darker and more mysterious but not precise.
T - Actually the taste is pretty nice, slightly above average. The red and dark fruit core lingers with a slightly dry and faintly bitter aftertaste.
M - Somewhat light for a bock style.
D - The best aspect of the beer is the drinkability. Goes down smooth yet with a refreshing finish. Not like Bud Light; you can actually taste this one.
They have this beer virtually everywhere here in Houston, so if nothing else, it's better than the typical domestic swill (Bud, Bud LT)

Pours a clear, golden brown with a fizzy, short lived off white head.
Lightly grassy floral notes muddled with a bready, caramel malt backing.
Medium body, fizzy carbonation.
A decent beer, nothing particularly exciting, but easy drinking, and pleasant.

On-tap at $4 a pint.
Appearance: Brown. Plenty of clarity. Not much head, and virtually zero lacing. Looks alright, I guess.
Smell: Malty. Slightly roasty. No hop aroma, really. Just has a cheap sort of smell, but it's not off-putting or anything like that. Again, alright.
Taste/feel: For a third time, it's okay. It has a thin feel with a moderate prickly carbonation. Caramel malts and the like with a slight roastiness as well. Sweet, not bitter at all... mediocre, and pretty uninteresting.
Short review for a beer that doesn't require a long one. It's a beer that... just... it is what it is. Affordable, decent, nothing-at-all-special beer. Sweet, quite thin, a good amount of carbonation, not very interest piquing. Probably wouldn't buy it again.
Serving type: on-tap
