3.38/5  rDev +20.3%

A: Pale colour but on the darker side of euro lagers, clear, minimal head, no lacing. S: Malt, minimal hop content, fairly pleasant for Euro Pale Lager, hint of yeast. T: Sweet, very malt forward, some fruity notes. M: Light body, initially well carbonated but faded along with the crispness. O: For what it is it’s pretty good, no noticeable ajunct content.

Served in a bottle at Peculier Pub in New York, NY

A: Pours a crystal clear pale yellow in color with moderate amounts of visible carbonation and some faint hints of light golden yellow highlights. The beer has a quarter finger tall fluffy white head that quickly reduces to a very thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer with a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light aromas of sweet adjunct malts are present with corn and grains standing out.

T: Moderate flavors of sweet malts with a lot of grain and corn adjuncts. No hop flavors or bitterness are perceptible.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly smooth.

O: A very offering for the style - not offensive but probably not interesting (or good) enough to warrant trying again.

2.8/5  rDev -0.4%

Bottle at Peculiar Pub, New York, NY

A: The beer is crystal clear light yellow in color and has a slight amount of carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down but never completely faded away.
S: Faint aromas of sweet corn adjuncts are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of sweet malts and corn adjuncts. No bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a little smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer goes down easily, but there's nothing special about the taste. It's a run of the mill Euro Pale Lager.

2.21/5  rDev -21.4%

This bottle was received as a gift. Reviewed from notes. Poured from 11.2 oz. bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pours a clear straw color, with about a finger's worth of white fluffy head and moderate visible carbonation.

S: Pilsner malts, graininess, corn, and just a bit of grassiness in the background.

T: Pretty standard grainy corn AAL lager flavors, moderate pilsner malt sulfur. Nothing to make it stand out from the myriad of other AALs around.

M: Light thin body, alcohol is well-hidden, and carbonation sensation on the low side.

O: Despite its name, this shares no characteristics of any Bock I am familiar with. Really just not a good beer.

2.35/5  rDev -16.4%

Looking at the bottle and ratings this beer has garnered there is an instant feeling of regret upon purchasing Super Bock, an American Adjunct Lager - yuck! Well let's not jump the gun, it could quite possibly be the greatest beer purchase ever, probably not in a million years, yeah.

Poured from a 330ml bottle into a nonic pint.

A: Body presents a clear lemon yellow, with a thin white speckled lace for a head.

S: Adjuncty (if you are a real word) grain aroma, malt, vegetal matter and dare I say it; a twist of lemon.

T: Crisp Lager flavours, full grain/malt base with that lemon again, although it does taste like artificial lemon so don't get your hopes up. Finish is dry and malty.

M: Mid to light body with flat carbonation.

D: Look I can see how one would drink this in Portugal when 99% of the alcohol you get there is wine, however it is a boring Lager with little merit apart from the fact that it doesn't taste like the beer equivalent of faeces, which is difficult it seems for most Lagers to manage. Also it is interesting in it's cloying artificial lemon flavour so I will give it that.

Note: It was a challenge finishing this beer - the off-lemon taste was off-putting - came close to a drain pour. Super Bock as it turns out was a super mistake. You have been warned.

Food match: Seafood... though it would be a waste of good seafood, make it a cheap fish & chips, don't waste calamari or oysters on this one.
