look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Appearance - a promising pour, nice frothy manila head atop a fine-looking reddish caramel. The seems creamy and with legit body but begins falling apart quickly. Within a minute, it's a partial cover despite some spirited bead from below. The label says bock but the eye says amber.

Aroma - a glint of caramel malt, covered all too soon by blase grain. After a little setup time it resembles a basic macro lager.

Taste - sweet grains, Killians-like, a flash of toast to the malt. A notable alcohol presence supporting some caramel, but the body lacks depth. The start of a few different flavor elements here but not much development in any of them. Finishes clean, neat, a lingering note of the abv.

Mouthfeel - the bubbles are okay despite some slight interference picking out flavors. Decent weight and smoothness.

Overall - not bad, probably a stronger statement than the American Ale, but I can't see a side-by-side any time soon. I'd have it again, but not necessarily on purpose.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours reddish amber with a nice white head that dissipates quickly. Smells of some fruit like berries and slight orange. Tastes of some fruit, mainly berries. Beer is easy drinking, light bodied, sessionable. Overall a slightly above average beer.

look: 2 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

Pours a clear, dark copper color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Slight retention and poor lacing. Smells of sweet malt, caramel malt, hops, and slight adjunct. Fits the style of an American Amber / Red Lager. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with a average carbonation level. Tastes of caramel malt, sweet malt, hint of pale male, hint of hops, hint of roasted malt, and slight adjunct. There is a particularly odd roasted, metallic, grass flavor in the finish. Overall, weak appearance and aroma, but slightly better body and blend. Still, I would not recommend this brew.

Budweiser Beechwood Bock has a thick, off-white head, a clear, deep amber (bordering on brown) appearance, lots of bubble streams, and a bit of lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet brown bread crust and standardized American lager beer. Taste is of those elements, with a slight hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium and somewhat slick. Budweiser Beechwood Bock finishes crisp, easy tasting, and mild. No alcohol was detected in the flavor. This is not a bold beer, by any stretch of the imagination, but it is nice, anyway.
