UPDATED: MAY 20, 2003 This is an average beer. It has a nice malty taste ad goes down failry smoothly, despite having a hint of a burnt taste. It's better than the rest of the AB products, but is only good when you are on a budget. It's my occasional cheap beer for when I am broke. It's kind a blend between halfway decent brewing and Budweiser. No real Bock taste though. It's kinda light with obvious food color added to it. It's kinda a shame, really. For a little more $$$, AB might be able to make something decent. It's taste varies on tap though. Sometimes it's good (ice cold,) sometimes it tastes like fermented deer urine.

Didn’t have the roasted malty aroma or taste I was seeking. An average Lager with good color or is that too much red dye #2? If this is a bock, then it’s a bologna sandwich in a steakhouse.

My wife and I were on our honeymoon in Savanah, GA, and we went to the local convenience store to get some beer, and this was about the only thing other than coors light or bud light we thought might be worth a damn. Boy, were we wrong. Should’ve paid for the MGD on that day.

Kind of a ’training wheels’ bock beer, but at least they’re trying. Just a whisker too light and sweet to be a noteworthy bock, but much better than standard Mick, and HUGELY better than most American mainstream products.

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.

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.
