Decent taste and drinkability. Great choice for when ya ain't feelin' snooty.

Pours a mild brown with a one-finger head into my glass. It's nice to see this available here after hearing about it from friends down in TX.

Sweet malt with a caramel note.

Sweet and toasty with caramel toffee in the background.

Grainy finish accompanied by more of that nuttiness.

I like it. Won't win any awards but it's good as is.

One of my favorite mass produced Bock beers. Smooth taste without being too bitter. If you like Bock beers and you can't find your micro brew of choice, this one will do just fine.

Definitely my favorite to pick up at the local store and keep on ice at home.
