OK. Having sampled around 250 different beers, I'm learning more and more every day. We all see, smell and taste differently. That being said...
From draft at the local casino;
Pours a nice deep dark amber like a good bock should.
Decent tan head like a good bock should have.
But that is.where the good characteristics ended for me.
Smells malty and sweet but stale.
Tastes like it smells. Malts, sweet caramel, but a dry stale flavor ruins it for me. While cold it seems too sweet for this style of beer. As it warms, the stale cardboard flavor overpowers the flavor making it difficult to finish. This is nothing like Celebrator or even old reliable Shinerbock. I guess I would drink it in a pinch, but I find it fair at best.
Unlike prev. Review, I cant find even the slightest resembelance to Guinness Extra Stout, or anything else.

Serving type: on-tap

It pours reddish-brown, overwhelming that dissipates rapidly, some lacings, and decent carbonation. it has sweet malty taste, little aroma, with hints of roasted grains. There is no bite or edge, goes done easy , and is not filling. Above average come pared to the lesser Anheuser products.
