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.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass.

Appearance: pours a thin off white head that drops slowly with the mildest of lacing. Color is a clear deep amber with no visible streaming carbonation.
Aroma: very, very mild. Just a bit of breadiness and slight caramel.
Mouthfeel: mostly light, slighty sticky with a dry finish.
Flavor: roasty caramel, bread crust, a bit of raisin and cocoa, with mild lingering hop bitterness.
Overall: nice, easy drinking beer that should pair well with many foods.
