Expected this to be much darker and bolder for a bock. This has little flavor and is typical of many big company beers. Should have stuck with them, but the bock on the label tricked me.

A miserable joke from the craft beer section. Weak flavor, weak head. The color of tepid Coke after all the ice has melted.

Horrible, could be one of worst beers I have tried. Had at The Orleans in vegas cuz it was only non fizzy yellow beer they had that was free at tables. My mistake I should pay to have a decent beer. Horrible medium malt butiric flavor. Mouth coating stale sugar. Couldnít even finish.

Just sickening dirty malts. Pours clear amber but really flat. Could not put and keep this down. Just wierd sweet malts coving an otherwise grain tea.

Caramel in taste. Very dull beer with rather poor taste and aroma. Typical beer from huge brewery.

Bleh... nothing to ever write home about. Itís a "gateway beer" to the very definition. Thereís some flavor there that might interest people who havenít tasted that in beer before... and in a pinch itíll work...but itís just a bit boring.

Pours with a pretty decent head on it, but quickly goes away, leaving some lacing on the glass....Aroma is mostly of roasted malt and some caramel, but not much... Taste is actually pretty bland, even my first sips with the head werenít great. I get more sweet than bitter and maybe slightly salty and dark roastedness...Mouthfeel is thin, maybe watery even. It is very drinkable however....Overall Iím disappointed in it. Itís not terrible, but itís better than most other A-B products.

At least a little flavor here. Not much aroma outside of a light graininess with slight hint of caramel. Slightly malty taste with caramel, but extremely light body. Lots of carbonation. Watery mouthfeel. Better than a macro pale lager, but not much.

Taste is actually kind of reminiscent of a black and tan even more so than a bock or an amber lager. It really does give the illusion of someone making it by taking a yellow macro lager and a darker macro-type beer and mixing them half and half. A little bit of caramel malt and dark roasted malt, but mostly pale malt. Minimal hopping- probably noble hops, but who can tell? Aroma is a bit better than Iíd expect. In one store, I saw this priced like a macro lager, which is a good bit of variety at that price range. Possibly intended to compete with Yuengling Black and Tans in markets where Yuengling is sold.
