look: 3 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.25

Appearance (3.00) : Has a nice amber body, lightly carbonated, with a small head (about a finger's width). The color fit that of other common bocks.

Smell (1.50) : Smell? I couldn't place a smell for this beer. It was very lacking aromatically. I smelled trace amounts of hops and a sweet smell, but it was challenging.

Taste (2.50) : Smooth and sweet, almost watery. I couldn't taste the malts whatsoever and I don't find that it fits the Bock style nearly enough. Tastes more like a darker pilsner.

Mouthfeel (2.00) : Fine. Nothing special - I do like the carbonation, however.

Overall (2.25) : Not at all what I expected from this beer. Entirely too watery and sweet and unfitting for the style.
