For me, this is one of the most drinkable and enjoyable beers I have ever had. It is not over-carbonated like most common American beers. I like the mouthfeel of ZiegenBock. To me, over-carbonated beers all have bite that I do not like. ZiegenBock does not have this bite but is quite pleasurable on the palate. It is also lightly sweet, not bitter.

I call ZiegenBock my favorite "dinner beer" or "table beer", which is mostly the only way I drink beer. I have one almost every night with my dinner for 2+ years now. I don't understand all the low rating reviews it gets on BA. I love it, it is my first choice preferred beer. My local convenience store carries it just for me.

It is owned by AB but is brewed here in the Houston area.

I liked it. It was cold, fresh and tasted great. No problems with it whatsoever. As a matter of fact, I thought it was great!

Drinking it at a Chili's in Houston International. I find it very good with the boneless wings. I could pound a few of these down with no problem. Surprised to read that it is an A Busch product. Must have been an aquisition because this is too good to be their recipe.

Had a disinctive Amber taste but not much else. Very light body, light IBU. Copper in color. Overall, I was not pleased

It appeared to be a dark Amber beer but the flavor was very fruity and enjoyable. It is a great summer beer that doesn't leave a bitter aftertaste and does give that refreshing Amber spice.
