Poured into a 21 oz pilsener glass at the local neighborhood hole-in-the-wall.
Appearance: It was dark in the bar but it was clearly not a Bud or Miller lager. It had a light brown color that started with a fairly thick head that disappeared when I sipped it. For a bock the nut brown was surprisingly light colored.
Smell: There was some faint sweetness, especially when the head was present. Still for a bock it seemed rather subdued.
Taste: It was noticeably fuller and more sweet than most lager you would find in a whole-in-the-wall. The taste was above average and while I have had bocks which were better I have also had quite a few other beers that were not as flavorful.
Mouthfeel: Indistinguishable from Budweiser, not much thicker than water.
Drinkability: Went down easy enough and not to strong. Basically it could be drank all night for cheap.
One of A&B's better brews as far as I'm concerned. Bock is a strong word to describe this beer as it is watered down in terms of sight, smell, taste and texture that one usually associates with bock. With all this said I enjoyed this much more than the American Adjunct Lager usually released by the big name breweries. This is a great back-up beer to sip if you are at a bar with limited selection.
Serving type: on-tap
