look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Picked up at the DFW airport, asked for a glass, poured into a pint glass; color is amber, nice frothy head light tan in color, dissipates quickly (glass was chilled).

Smell is mild breadiness, lager type scent but underdone.

Taste is very neutral mild sweetness, light cara el and bread flavors, with solid bitter finish.

Mouthfeel is clean, crisp, not too many off flavors or lingering, but maybe too much so.

Overall, this a mild average bock, could use some more caramel flavor, but the bitterness was ok

look: 2 | smell: 1 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5

A - Brew is very dark with nice clarity. Not too much head. No lacing. Below average.

S - Not too much of a scent... Very bland and bready.

T/M - Over carbonated. How do people drink/enjoy this beer??? There's no flavor other then light malt.

O - This beer is bad. Very bland and disappointing. Highly not recommended.
