I know that this is among the better poor quality American macro brews out there but yuck! Somebody left it here so I thought it was time to do a review of something I would never buy.
The beer itself is crystal clear (of course) but the color is a strange muddy reddish-brown (not ugly just a bit unnatural), head is thin and white. Bubbles are actually quite tiny but very few.
Aroma a very light sour dough, grain husk tannin and alcohol that's about it.
Taste is not horrifying, but not good. Very light sour and almost metallic notes (i think I'm tasting the co2). A nasty cheap sugar (corn?) quality and very minute twinge of acetic acid.
Very light in body, yet sickeningly bloating (how do they do that?). You could say it is drinkable but why? I happen to have working plumbing in my house so I was able to pour the remainder of this beer down the drain. I certainly couldn't, wouldn't and didn't drink a whole one. I'm not surprised but still somehow disappointed by this beer.
Note: Why is this beer classified under the Bock style? Just because it says bock doesn't make it so. Not much here, but just enough to dislike.
