There are beers that I would buy anytime and anywhere, and then there are beers that are perfectly suitable for accompanying a meal, when dining out. I would put this pleasant, malty, reddish-amber beer in the latter category. Although inevitably served too cold and lacking much head, it is a light, but flavorful beer with some subtlety, hints of wine, fruit, herbal nose when opened (but quickly fading), etc., but also somewhat course at times - i.e., alcohol not well-integrated. I would say that its better than its Mexican counterparts as a restaurant beer. Could use more hops at the finish.

Moretti offers a good set of beers. This red bock is rather good and not so bitter. The slightly creamy after taste is a pleasure.

Intense notes of caramel, dark reddish/copper with a good beige head, light/medium body, Law/medium carbonation, caramel...a good surprise despite it remains an industrial beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a bottle into a Sierra Nevada stem glass. Pours dark brown with head and lace. Aroma of caramel malts and molassas. Medium carbonation and significant mouthfeel. Flavors of roasty malts, caramel, molassas, dark chocolate, minerals, slight bitter herbs. Overall mostly flavorful although not as much body and a little sweeter and without the bite I’ve found in German dopelbocks.

Bottle. Aroma is spicy hops, woody, yeasty and like red wine. Flavor is sweet and nutty, light syrup. Palate is fizzy and like a soft drink. Good beer!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not very aromatic but a pleasant pour appearance and a mild appealing flavor. I don’t get a bitter aftertaste as described here...I experience a lovely, light sweetness which I find to be extremely enjoyable and easy drinking. The carbonation level is near perfect to my preference also. Low volume, fast dissipating head with little to no lacing. Nice rusty brownish red color.
