look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Half finger creamy rapidly receding head, brown amber body.  Some decent lacing but not much retention.

Smell is half cheap uriney macro beer, but with some chocolatey malt.

Taste. Hmm. Like a really malty bid light?  Nor horrible but the main taste is corny, and the rest just tastes a bit cheap.  There's a vague, sticky aftertaste.  

Mouthfeel tastes like some foamy fiz pumped into what would otherwise be watery.

It's not horrible but not good either. Really probably shouldn't be classified as a bock, though I guess I see what they did there, maybe a really dark amber.
