It’ll do in a pinch, but too many and you get the signature AB headache.

A pretty quality american beer! Couldn’t drink on a regular basis, but once in a while is good for a change.

Ya know, I admire AB for pretending to care enough to make a real beer, but it still doesn’t work. It’s pretty and looks promising, but it just doesn’t have anything resembling a bock body. Too thin, lacking the bock malts. Better than their other stuff, but when Optimator is so readily available, why the heck bother with this crap?

UPDATED: OCT 28, 2004 Like a lot of beer folks here, I’m not one to be awed by the mighty AB. But still, I think they did a pretty good job on this one. Maybe it’s a little light, but there is plenty of malt there and it has a nice toasty finish.

Not bad for AB beer, smooth beer with a nice taste

One of the better Macro brews.

Good American beer. I really like to enjoy this at the bars. It has a very smooth taste, and its not too weighty.

Not a real bock, but a nice, almost sweet taste. Great beer.

Way too sweet for me.
