Amber Bock had in 16 oz plastic cup at Irish festival, four finger head

The color is amber brown, head is off white, almost cola colored

Taste: fairly complex for inBev... malt forward beer, bready, and toasty. As the beer warms a chocolate flavor appears.

Smell: malt

Mouthfeel: watery

Overall, this beer is what I would have if I only had a choice from domestic brews.

A: The beer is crystal clear amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that died down but consistently left patches of bubbles covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: There are light aromas of caramel malts in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste has flavors of caramel malts along with a hint of malty sweetness.
M: It feels light-bodied and a bit thin on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is a lot lighter in body compared to other beers in the style, making it easier to drink for people that are used to drinking American Adjunct Lagers and Light Lagers.
