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

Someone had a leftover beer in thier fridge and didnt want it, which makes a perfect excuse for my first AB product review. Although the fact that someone gave it away should give me pause. Poured into a pilsner glass.

A - It's well...you guessed it - dark amber colored. Even an aggressive pour yielded only the thinnest half-finger head of very soapy looking white bubbles. Lacing non-existent.

S - Very faint, but what little smell I got was decent. You can smell some roasted barley.

T - Not horrible. Just...weak. Initial taste is roasted and slighty sweet malt. A little bit of a spicy hop twang. But everything is in such miniscule proportions that I cannot go so far as to call this "good". Especially since it's supposed to be a "bock", and it has almost zero bock characteristics. Taste dies out almost instantly, leaving a taste reminiscent of paste I ate when I was a kid. Probably not a good thing to have your beer taste like paste.

M - Watery. Waaaay watery. With lots of carbination. Mouthfeel wise, this is no different from any other AB product I've ever had.

O - I cant lie, I have drank a good bit of this back in my youth. But I wanted to review it 100% objectively. Now that I have, I could be nice and say how Amber Bock is sometimes the best choice at restaurants or how it's a gateway from Coors/Bud/Miller to "better" beers. But I wont. Truth be told, it's weak flavored, watery, mislabled, and just...not very good. I would never pay to drink this by choice.
