look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

12 oz brown twist off bottle with a "Born On Date" freshness date on the neck label.

A- Thin off white lacing barely holds together, deep reddish brown hue with a good clarity.

S- Clean nose with a mild malt character ... only a hint of toasted malt, nothing like a bock IMO.

T- On the sweet side with very little depth, touch of sharpness form the carbonation and simple hop bitterness. Finishes with an odd dextrin sweetness.

M- Ample crispness, a bit of smoothness and a creamy moderate body.

D- Not a bad stepping stone beer, quite plain but quite drinkable at the same time. This beer is to AB as Killians Red is to Coors. Misleading with the whole bock thing ... I'd love to see an all-malt 6.5% abv+ version from AB.
