I agree with cola & caramel notes that were mentioned on this page. The carbonation is decent for the style, but it's sort of a little too flat & light in flavor to be considered a good drinking bock. It's okay as a transition bock beer but it's not as good as perhaps Shiner Bock. Cheers! C

Pleasing deeper, darker quality that combos as easily approachable.

Looks oaky, oaky, and brown, but not much aroma or taste. it's basically a lightly spiked sodapop. An overpriced one at that.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Look: Very dark, opaque brown. Practically no head.

Smell: A little spicy fruit, dark malt, and not much else.

Taste: Mild bready malt and that’s about it.

Mouthfeel: Average thickness, very high and sparkly carbonation.

Overall: While better than an adjunct lager, still very mild and lacking in taste or complexity.

To be honest, it's pretty bland, and it more or less tastes just like regular Michelob but with a slight artificial maltiness. Its as if they just added food coloring and a bit of artificial flavor to regular Michelob which is okay I guess. I mean its drinkable but you might as well pick up some regular Michelob cause this is slightly more expensive. And for what? A gross aftertaste? That's what you're paying for.

Yuengling black and tan is the same price if not cheaper and tastes like something. Just go with that if you want an affordable dark malty beer. Edit* Unless you live west of Indiana u.u Jesus no wonder this imitation of a dark beer still sells.

Pours an Amber amber color with a white head.
The nose is minimal.
Taste is malty, but is light flavored.
Body is light. Not too watery.
For $1, It's ok, but not a great beer.
