Massachusetts

2.9/5  rDev +3.6%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

12.5 oz brown bottle with “Best Before End” date printed on the label.

Appearance: Pale golden straw colour, perfect clarity with a decent amount of white lace that lessens to a ring.

Smell: Grainy with a lemony undertone and faint cooked veggies.

Taste: Grainy without a doubt, ghost like acrid flavour perhaps from that carbonation and fermentation by-products. Faint citric and grape tones hit in the middle with a lightly warming alcohol. Hops are bitter indeed though do not reach the point of being unbalanced.

Mouthfeel: Sufficient crispness with a sturdy medium body, dextrins in the mouth give it a slight creamy slickness.

Drinkability & Notes: For what it is priced for ($6-7 a six pack) it is not worth it just for flavour sake. Worth a try in my book yet I was not surprised to end up with a mediocre beer.

3.53/5  rDev +26.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Presentation: Short 11.2oz brown bottle, with freshness stamp.

Appearance: Bright pale yellow in colour with a thin white lace head. Carbonation is moderate.

Smell: Dry grain, light fruit esters and a floral aroma way in the back of the nose.

Taste: Crisp and refreshing up-front with a lemony hop flavour and semi-salty sharp rind-like bitterness. Carbonation aids in providing a creamy feel. Malt sweetness is even, dextriny, not overpowering and creates a full-bodied brew. The palate then dries up with grain tannins. Sweet alcohol and light hop floral flavours in the finish.

Notes: 5.8%abv. Super Bock is more of a malt liquor vs. a bock of any type, and it rivals nearly all of the malt liquors that I've tried. Very refreshing, with a nice alcohol kick to match.

1.86/5  rDev -33.6%
look: 2.25 | smell: 1.25 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Pours a deep yellow with minimal head. Smell is off putting and almost literally smells like crap. I can't put my finger on it but it just does not smell good. Tastes like a mixture of corn and barley together. If you like corn, then you will like this beer. Not a lot of body. The taste finishes strongly with the corn/barley. I did not enjoy this one at all.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Color- light gold.

Medium head quickly settling.

Aroma- gentle sweet sorghum lager.

Taste- A mildly sweet refreshing lager, clean and simple throughout with a hint honey. A great lawn mowing brew that is better than the mass produced domestic giants' offerings for a lighter (not lite) lager. My rating my seem high, but I rate within the context of a

Poured from 330 ml bottle into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). Tasted on 9/28/2013.

S- Just like a North American beer

T- Like a mass produced North American beer

M- Same as above

O- Not so good. Just like a run of the mill North American beer like Bud or Millar
