look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

appearance: a darker color than other beers of this price, but still, its pretty stone cold avragness

smell: decent. nothing offensive, but nothing that I really enjoy. Avrageness yet again

taste: once again, its just ok. Ive drunk this by the pitcher before, and it had been good nights, but nothing I expressly enjoy

mouthfeel: whatfeel? not much here eather. I'm sorry to run on a tangent, but this is average yet again.

overall: 4/5

wait, why that rating? I said that this beer is the perfect example of a perfectly average beer
price point makes me add an extra point. even at the shittiest bar, this beer is still available, and is always a cheap, easy to get option.
If funds are tight or options are low, get this beer
you at least, will not be disappointed (but nor will you be impressed)

if you can get another brew do so
thats all I have to say about this one

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: After the head recedes, it looks a lot like cola, maybe a little prettier. Amber Bock pours a dark... well, amber. Not an ugly brew, being kind of translucent-dark when held up to a light but quite bubbly.

Smell: Colds keep bothering me when I'd like to review beer, but I smell roasted barley, and some general mild earthiness.

Taste: Good, with more flavor than a typical macro, even if it is somewhat watery.

Mouthfeel: Again, it's not quite as thick/creamy as some other bocks I've tried. Very drinkable, but somewhat watered down to others of the style. It might be a tad over carbonated, too. As with lots of other beers worth drinking, it gets better when it isn't as ice-cold.

Overall: I've been going to this one for a while as the only dark available on tap in a few pubs I've frequented. Reasons being: far more flavor than you would get from the macro straw-colored beers available, and less expensive than a truly nice beer. She's my go-to middle of the road dark. Quite a cheap date, Michelob Amber Bock.

I end up drinking this dark beer more than I would like because it is usually available everywhere and is sometime the only dark around. The appearance and smell are average the taste has nothing that offends . A little watery. But still better than a lighter lager in my opinion
