This is a very smooth drinking beer. It does not have a ’rich, roasted taste,’ but it has a nice malty flavor. This is a good beer in a bar that doesn’t have anything but AB products, although it really doesn’t taste like a bock.

Decent beer considering it comes from a shitty brewery. It has a nice nutty flavor, but overall this beer is not very satisfying.

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2007 Rich malty aroma and full flavor that is as smooth and simple in the first sip as the last. Not as overpowering as a dopplebock but more flavorful than s many ales

Light, smooth drinking, with a sweet taste and a long-lasting head. This beer has a deep caramel color; freshness dated. Not a bad effort.

Very Impressive, easily the besy AB beer, now thats not saying much, but it is a must try. It has a rich oakish taste and toasted nut taste going down with a michelob aftertaste. I’m addicted.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2003 This is an average beer. It has a nice malty taste ad goes down failry smoothly, despite having a hint of a burnt taste. It's better than the rest of the AB products, but is only good when you are on a budget. It's my occasional cheap beer for when I am broke. It's kind a blend between halfway decent brewing and Budweiser. No real Bock taste though. It's kinda light with obvious food color added to it. It's kinda a shame, really. For a little more $$$, AB might be able to make something decent. It's taste varies on tap though. Sometimes it's good (ice cold,) sometimes it tastes like fermented deer urine.

IslandHaole (1091) - Yokosuka-Shi, Kanagawa-Ken, JAPAN - MAR 25, 2002
Didn’t have the roasted malty aroma or taste I was seeking. An average Lager with good color or is that too much red dye #2? If this is a bock, then it’s a bologna sandwich in a steakhouse.

My wife and I were on our honeymoon in Savanah, GA, and we went to the local convenience store to get some beer, and this was about the only thing other than coors light or bud light we thought might be worth a damn. Boy, were we wrong. Should’ve paid for the MGD on that day.

Kind of a ’training wheels’ bock beer, but at least they’re trying. Just a whisker too light and sweet to be a noteworthy bock, but much better than standard Mick, and HUGELY better than most American mainstream products.
