Not as sharp of a taste as a normal bock. Almost tastes like a miller lite and a blue moon had a kid

Surprisingly tastes like an American adjunct lager even though it’s classified as a bock. Nice and easy to drink. Pours out darker amber color, some mild head without much lingering lacing. Smells very faintly of sweet malt. Tastes of grain, caramel, biscuit, sweet malt and again reminds me of an AAL. Clean finish with moderate carbonation that fades as the beer warms. Thin mouthfeel. Not bad but I wouldn’t pick it as my go-to Bock.

Taste like water. No taste. I don’t feel alcohol in it. Waste of money.

Really great for this style of lager although I do prefer the Negro Modelo over this beer. Cheers! B- (80-84) score range

Really great for a cheap dark beer. It’s just a full build to it, nice bitter taste, and a thick, dark look to it. Recommended for getting a good buzz on with a bit of a tight budget
