VERY understated. Almost watery. It would be exceptional with sushi or spicy food, to clear the palate. I don't prefer it for sipping on its own.

Mediocre beer. Pouring it into a glass and letting it sit for a little bit improves on the flavor and smell but not by enough to where I'd call it good stuff. Spend your money elsewhere.

This one didn't do it for me. Flat flavor. Slight sour taste. Stale finish. A little pepper on there tongue

Auburn pour with thin white head. Not much aroma. Semi sweet malt body. Lite mouthfeel. Overall, a lite easy to drink beer.

Texas Yuengling.. But not as good.. Very bland and flat.. Just a slighty flavorful Amber lager.

Poured a slightly reddish brown, left a fizzy off white head that receded immediately. Leaves no lacing on the glass.

Smells very plain, basic beer scent. Yeast, malted barely, maybe some corn syrup.

Tastes similar to Yuengling Traditional Lager, most minor caramel notes from the malt, some brown bread.

Light bodied, fairly high carbonation, crisp and clean and refreshing, but maybe a bit too bubbly.

Fairly middle of the road, no off flavors, not too watery, but nothing spectacular either.

While I prefer heavier ales, if I'm going to have a bock, this is the one.
