look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: After the head recedes, it looks a lot like cola, maybe a little prettier. Amber Bock pours a dark... well, amber. Not an ugly brew, being kind of translucent-dark when held up to a light but quite bubbly.
Smell: Colds keep bothering me when I'd like to review beer, but I smell roasted barley, and some general mild earthiness.
Taste: Good, with more flavor than a typical macro, even if it is somewhat watery.
Mouthfeel: Again, it's not quite as thick/creamy as some other bocks I've tried. Very drinkable, but somewhat watered down to others of the style. It might be a tad over carbonated, too. As with lots of other beers worth drinking, it gets better when it isn't as ice-cold.
Overall: I've been going to this one for a while as the only dark available on tap in a few pubs I've frequented. Reasons being: far more flavor than you would get from the macro straw-colored beers available, and less expensive than a truly nice beer. She's my go-to middle of the road dark. Quite a cheap date, Michelob Amber Bock.
