A decent bock. A higher IBU, say like a 30 or 40 would've made it much more satisfying.

friend ordered for me at the Anna Maria oyster bar, not sure if from tap or bottle. Nice color, absolutely no foam, no lacing etc. smell is pleasant enough, malty but slightly vinegar like. malty slightly fruity flavor, no hop flavors discernable at all, lightly watered down, very little carbonation. overall is an option for sure when out places that don't offer better selections, definantly drinkable, especially over some of the other ab junk.

Had this brew as private labeled Ug's Chug in the Florida Keys. Decent brew, but not a real reflection of a Bock

No "Beer Snob" review here. Bottom line is.....you will love it. Winter time beer of choice for me. Stick to your ribs taste. Similar to a Marzen so you can drink like it's Oktoberfest all year long.

This one was a sacrificial lamb left in my beer fridge after mopping the floor with one of my friends at the poker table. Seeing as how Michelob was a gateway beer for me, (ala Killians, Heineken, etc) I had to give it a go again for nothing other than nostalgia. The bottle pours in to a fluted glass with a sudsy vanilla head atop a translucent walnut brown lager. The head settles quickly in to a thin layer of foam with an appealing collar. It has an appetizing appearance, I'll give it that. The nose is fairly subdued, with a malty smell and fruity undertones. A bit of copper-like aroma as well. It's a slightly more sophisticated fragrance than Bud. Typical AB flavor profile with a beefed up malt presence and a bit of toffee sweetness. Slight fruitiness through the middle with no discernible hop character and only a hint of any balancing bitterness. Some lingering corn flavor and only the faintest suggestion of toasted malts in the finish. This is billed as 100% malt, but the aroma/flavor certainly lead one to believe that there are some adjuncts in the mix. The mouthfeel is medium-thin, with a light, slick body. Gulpable, crisp and refreshing. An easy quaff that's pretty clean. Is it a bock? No. It's a pig with lipstick. However, just because I can pull out the common threads from lesser beers like Bud, doesn't mean that it's a bad beer. I rather enjoyed it. It's a dark American lager . Basic, but better than most beer enthusiasts would have you believe. Now, bring back that signature Michelob bottle!

On tap at Santa Maria Restaurant in St. Augustine, FL.

Pours a medium brown with a foamy one inch head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells vaguely malty and slightly metallic.

This is certainly not bad, but it does nothing absolutely to stand out. It's slightly doughy and slightly caramelly. There's a bit of a flat metallic character as well that sort of detonates the flavors into submission.

This is medium bodied, with a creamy mouthfeel, and a higher level of carbonation. It's drinkable at least.

I didn't expect much out of this, and it met those expectations.
