look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Appearance: Poured a clear brown color, with hints of red. Half finger head to start with, reduces to nothing immediately. Minimal visible carbonation. Lacing?

Smell: A malty nose with some subtle sweetness. Caramel and adjunct malts. Grainy. No hops at all.

Taste: Bitter bite to start, with a sour malty flavor. Like a darker adjunct lager. Again, no hops at all.

Mouthfeel: Thin bodied and fills you up quickly.

Drinkability: Nothing really like a real bock beer, more like a dark American lager. Easy to drink, but not appealing enough to want to drink more than one. Tastes the same in the bottle and the glass.

Buy again? Maybe with others, but not for myself.
