3.45/5  rDev +20.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 4.5

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

2.66/5  rDev -7.3%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

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.

Serving type: bottle
