Pours a clear dark copper to chestnut brown with a quickly dissipating, soapy khaki head. Aroma is sweet cereal, toast, metal, light toasty wood and caramel. Flavor is caramel, lots of weird artificial tasting toffee, bread crust, cereal and light metallic notes. Light body, oily feel throughout and medium carbonation. Not very good. Better than I would expect from A-B, but they have leagues to go to catch up to the little guys.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a typically carbonated transparent light red brown colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was woody. The bubbly mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a mild malty aftertaste. The mild flavor contained notes of wood and hops. Not one that I would buy again.

Red in color. Basically it’s like a Killians with more of a kick and a sweeter finish.

Bottled from Rite Aid. Decent little bock . Lacking the richness of a good bock. The wood character is mostly non-existent. Not bad for Bud though.

bottle thanks to drowland. nose is full of that crystal malt instead of maillard reaction typical of AB, like in amberbock. taste is actually much better, but it just this bland sweet mess with no real bock character at all. tolerable and nothing wrong with it other than recipe.

12 oz bottle- Pours clear dark amber with a thin light tan head. Aroma is very amber aleish, maybe a little richer. The taste is similar, like a rich amber ale, no detectable beechwood chips, or chocolate, just caramel malt. Body is light and carbonation is medium high. You get what you expect with a Budweiser "craft beer".

Bottle. Nutty caramel and barley malt aroma. Clear amber with a small off-white head. Slightly woody caramel malt flavor. Light body, lively carbonation.

poisoneddwarf (1821) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - FEB 13, 2014
12 oz bottle from the variety pack. Aroma is doughy, caramel. Pours clear amber with a collapsing off-white head. Taste is malty sweet with caramel prominent; a bit toasty. Highly carbonated, a little watery. Okay for style, but that’s not saying much.

suprchunk (2452) - Crestview, Florida, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Deep toffee colored pour. Not much of a head. No lacing. Malty aroma with some carbonic bite in the nose. Taste is slightly malty. Not bad. Tastes about like Amber Bock.
