An excellent brew. The best macro Bock on the market. Probably the only brew I’ve ever had that is better out of the bottle than on tap. Not to say that it isn’t good off the tap, but out of a bottle it can’t be beat.

Had a bottle of this after work tonight. This brew pours a clear pasteurized orange walnut with a large frothy whitish head that lasts about a minute before it diminishes into a thin strip that is gone by the end of the glass. Lacing is not evident. The moderate balanced nose though not overpowering is astonishing considering it comes from an Anheuser-Bush bottle. Hints of lightly roasted cereal and grains, flowers, perfume, grass, soap, earth, and alcohol are all present and accounted for. The flavor is balanced if light with a nutty yeasty average finish. The “safe” palate is medium with a somewhat watery/oily texture lively carbonation and a moderate astringent/alcoholic feel to the finish. A safe sample for an ‘American Standard Lager’ connoisseur. Also nice for when the ’poundin ’maniac’ wants a little flavor without having to worry about feeling filled up after 9 of ’em. Not bad, I’d like to see how this would do in a blind taste test. I would also like to see how much better this would be if wheat was subsituted for the rice.

I have never had bock before this beer, I really don’t have much to judge it against, but I think it is the best of the Anheuser Busch beers. Nice husky flavor, very nice dark amber color, probably the only ’sipping’ beer I’ve had out of the American macrobrewery offerings.

Dark amber color, creamy head, light and smooth flavor. Nice, easy drinking beer.

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.

muzzlehatch (4420) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAR 14, 2002
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.
