A decent, enjoyable íbockí beer. Iím partial to the doppelbock style myself, but this is worth the occasional drink on a tighter budget. Something about Michelob/A-Bís side-products has made a positive impression on me in comparison to the other stuff usually found in the grocery cooler/aisle. Definitely been better than average, anyway. Not a big fan of their Black & Tan, though I think thatís just me.

I bought one six pack that tasted good, then got another that was extremely skunky. I think that it is a decent beer, and I am extremely surprised that it came from Michelob.
Re-rate: I bought another six-pack a week ago and must say that each time I taste this, I like it less and less. Maybe its because Iím finding a little bit better stuff to try now.

Stinky. Cola brown, not amber, with off-white head. Decent appearance, but thin with ersatz carbonation. Better than Bud & Mic, worse than Peteís or Sam Adams.

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.

1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
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.

Itís not terrible. Really thin without a lot of flavor. Very easy to drink.
