Not much I can say, thin weak shitty malt flavor, another bad attemt from AB,they have no right to call this a bock.

I like this beer. It was one of the first beers that I ever thought was worth drinking. Good aftertaste and long finish.

not really a bock but a sweet brownish lager.
considering it comes from AB, I was surprised at the fact that it had some genuine malt taste.
Do not buy this if you want a bock but at a small bar this may be one of the more palatable alternatives.

Tried to keep an open mind when I tried this one. Pours a clear, deep red with a quickly fading head. Mouthfeel was soft. Up front, has a hint of a toasty flavor... but it dies out quickly. And did they even use hops in this beer? Finish was a little crisp, but painfully dry. Virtually no aftertaste. A rather feckless attempt.

It’s not terrible. Really thin without a lot of flavor. Very easy to drink.

This is an ok beer. Just ok nothing more nothing less. It is a dark beer, but compared to how it looks it is incredibly watered down. From looking at the bottle you’d think you were buying some really good German sludge, but on the contrary it is too devoid of any flavor to be memorable in any way. Seems to be better off tap than in a bottle. Honestly....out of the bottle I would rather drink Budweiser ponies than this.

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.
