L: Pours a brilliant amber gold color with a small white head and no lacing on the glass.

S: A bit of caramel and toasted grain, a small mineral note and maybe a slight hop. That's what I could smell but honestly, the aroma is nearly non-existent.

T: Some toasted grain a slight bit of caramel, no hop presence. Quite watery tasting too, honestly not much flavor here.

F: Light bodied, but also seems to taste a little flat.

O: Not recommended at all, there is almost no aroma or flavor to this.

I found this in a convenience store in Lousiana, have never seen it before and picked a few up to try. It poured a nice dark amber color with a white head that fades. The smell is of bread with a mild maltiness to it. The taste is of malts with some sweetness but rather plain. The feel is watery and light. Overall ok nothing to seek out.

Picked this up in a convenience store in Oklahoma on a road trip. Not what I expected from a beer named ZiegenBock, it was very smooth and drinkable with no offensive flavors. The color was dark amber with a substantial foamy head that lasted several minutes. Disappointed in the lack of any flavor, tasted like carbonated water with a hint of caramel.

Pours an effervescent ambner with 3 fingers of an head. Some lacing & head retention

S: Applejuice

T: Pears, faint leafy hops, some dryness & faint caramel up front. Faint metallic notes, dryness & more apple juice sweetness as this warms, Finishes watery with applejuice, insipid

MF: Light body, firm carbonation

Dissapointing, I guess someone is buying this, why I am not sure

Tastes a little watery but had a great flavor. With the 4.9% alcohol I wouldn't consider it a light beer but it tasted like one. Would recommend to friends who enjoy weaker tasting beers.

My bottle says it's 4.9 percent. Pairs well with summer sausage, brick cheese, and crackers
