Dark amber color with decent head and retention. Malt forward with the taste and smell and a slightly rich feel with little carbonation. An okay beer.

An OK tasting beer. But if you are looking for a traditional bock beer, keep looking. This has no
resemblance to that.

Looks good in the glass - like an amber. But almost no taste, bitterness or hop character. Not sure what makes it a "bock." For the same price you can get far superior Full Sail ESB or Amber, or many other decent offerings. Pass.

Took a chance on it since the store I stopped at didn't have shiner bock. Good tasting beer smells of floral and caramel notes. Not as good as shiner but a lot smoother and easier to drink than some bocks. Can taste the caramel and corn tastes. No skunk to it. Goes down easy around a fire. Found myself drinking the whole case

The big wigs sure do know how to make these beers look appealing. Something just pulls you in with the labeling and the marketing. I remember liking this one so let's see how she pans out this time around.

Appearance - in bottle, but a beautiful looking one.

Smell - Dark caramel malts, sweet toasted grains. Metallic tomato. Light fruits and floral notes. Some processed corn but kept in check. Smells like Budweiser but with no skunk. I like this nose. A lot.

Taste - Smooth and tasty. A hint, and I mean a hint, of bock bitterness which steps out of the way almost immediately leaving a clean and crisp finish. Identifiers would include tomato, metallic baked bread, washed out grains. Towards the end it develops a metallic after taste. The taste really is pretty good, and definitely refreshing.

Mouthfeel - Carbonated, which is not surprising for a big labeled beer. Under the carbonation is a creamy wash that gives the impression of a full-bodied beer. Finishes crisp and clean.

Overall - The last few beers I have rated I haven't been very impressed with. They were less than satisfactory. This is a nice change of pace and a welcome addition to my beer cache. I thoroughly enjoyed this Amber Bock and I will buy it again.
