A- Clear dark red amber body with a light tan foam cap.

A- Caramel and biscuity malt aroma.

T- Grainy sweet caramel flavor. Light balancing bitterness. Some phenolic flavors that makes the caramel flavor taste somewhat sweeter and old. Mostly clean finish with a sweet phenolic seat belt taste. Actually the aftertaste reminds me somewhat of non set jello.

M- Medium body, low to medium carbonation.

D- An ex left me this beer. It was better than I expected. Don't fear drinking this, but don't seek it out.

the beer pours a dark brown color with red tints, the head was off white and reduced to a filmy layer.

It smells of caramel and spice with a slight metallic scent, the aroma is pretty good. It tastes similaar but with mre metallic flavor, I also tasted more caramel and some light grassy hops. The beer has a light feel with plenty of carbonation and a slightly dry-lingering finish.

I was very impressed with this beer, mostly because the store by my house sells it for $3.99 a six-pack.

Beer pours a deep copper color with a modest cap of foam that dissipated quickly. Sweet grain and tobacco in the aroma. More sweetness on the palate, too much. Some bready notes mix it up until the beer moves into a vacant center and finishes with a touch of bitterness and metallic twang.

Not the best bock out there, but not bad for south of a south of the border bock.

From bottle...poured in small tulip glass.
Copper brown color. Small head.
Aroma of toasted malts, toffee, caramel, tobacco.
Significant carbonation...modest mouthfeel.
Flavors of medium sweet malts, minerals, citrus, water. More malt than light Mexican beer have, certainly, but light compared to Christmas - Holiday beers, or as it says "Estilo Bock." All in all, compared to the big beers I drink I would call this a session brew with slight caramel malt body.
