2.3/5  rDev -19.9%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

So my buddy Jason brought over a 12 pack a few minutes before I was going to crack open a Sammy Smith Nut Brown. Haven't had an Amber Bock in a long time, so decided to try it again.

Pours a nice-looking transparent "amber" color. Foamy inch head that drops down sharply. No lacing. Smells lightly sweet and malty.

Taste is most unimpressive. Mild, sourish malt flavor. Smooth, yet with a slightly burnt sour aftertaste. My breath smells like rice. Maybe that's 'cause they USE rice to make the beer. Can't think of any other reason than rice = cheap. So is this beer.

Mouthfeel is thin. I imagine one could pound a few of these in short order, as it is not filling, but why would you want to? There are lots of beers in the same price range that are much tastier. See: Newcastle, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, and anything by the Boston Beer Company.

A dreadfully medicore beer. Better than Bud Light, but that ain't saying much. Now where's my Sam Smith?

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.
