All I have to say is that for a Bock beer it is not very good. But for just a dark Lager it is good. It has a nice dark color, a little light on the flavor side but by far A-B best product.

Bottled, ’born on’ Feb 22 (thank God its fresh, huh). Appearance dark, translucent, very clear and filtered-looking. Aroma somewhat sweet and malty; a surprising amount of caramel malt for a product such as this. Flavor is...not bad exactly, in the same way that Al Gore looks ’not bad’ in comparison with the yokel occupying 1600 at the moment; rather pretentious and full of itself for actually having flavor, though the flavor actually seems to be that of Tootsie rolls dissolved in tepid water with a few grains of rice and corn. Compared to other A-B products, oh who gives a shit its bad anyway.

Not horrible. There is a decent malt flavor. This is not to be confused with a decent maltiness, because the texture is way too thin to describe it that way. Better than the major products from the big guys, but in no way would I describe it as ’flavorful’ or anything of the like.

not as thick as you’d expect from a dark beer, but its smooth. a good winter beer.

I had this on tap. Not a bad beer for A-B. Nice color and a decent aftertaste.

Certainly better than most mass produced beers, this is any easy to find solid performer that my wife knows is a safe choice when trying to find something for me!

they have no right to call this ’dark’ anything! I can’t really tell the difference between this and regular Michelob!
