Thebest bock for the money, if itís a bock. For 3.50 a six pack it just canít be beat. Of course thatís also the only time to get it too. It is pretty weak and doesnít have anything that jumps out at you.

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.

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.
