Notes/Commercial Description:
Brewed in Houston, ZiegenBock is a beer of the South. Only available in Texas, this American-style amber lager, offers notes of roasted grains in the aroma and a sweet, smooth taste with a hop finish. The select imported hops and specialty malts create a taste worthy of a 2006 Great American Beer Festival Bronze Medal.

I liked it. It was cold, fresh and tasted great. No problems with it whatsoever. As a matter of fact, I thought it was great!

look: 3.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.25

Light brown copper color with a thick beige head with good retention.
Predominant aroma of caramels and bread.
Flavor doesn't improve this. It basically tastes artificial caramel notes, grains and maybe a very distant herbal hop. Some cardboard and corn. Aftertaste is a bit astringent.
Watery body with medium carbonation.
It felt too bland for me. It might not even be an option over Adjunct Lagers. Later checked that Inbev is producing it, making friends in Texas...
