2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
@ Party Town / Florence KY I remember in college drinking this when I wanted something better than the PBR and Bud. It is still that way, except now Iíve had "real" beers, and this becomes a sweet caramel malt with carbonation. Appearance is good right after the pour: amber brown with a 2" golden head. Soon, itís down to no head-no lace, end of the story.

Amber color. Aroma is weak but slightly roasty. Flavor is a bit roasty and with some maltiness. Good for what is is for sure but not anything to write home about.

This is decent when compared to other American macrolagers. Itís good BBQ or lawn mowiní beer. Itís a touch sweet and is rather malty. The liquid is brown and claer with minimal aroma.

Thought this beer was okay the first time I had it. Of course, I first had this in a frosted mug that diluted the flavor, and hence, the offensive qualities of this brew. After having it the "proper" way, I saw why my local barbecue joint had chosen to serve this stuff ice cold. This lager has a thin, weak body. It takes no time at all for its cereal sweetness to become skunky and metallic. Donít expect this brew to have complexity or rich flavor. Youíll be sorely disappointed.

Nice color, no so nice taste. Too bitter for me (coming from a guy who loves IPAs). Iíd have it again if I have to chose between this one and all those blah light lagers out there. If there are any other options I wouldnít

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Amber color with foamy off-white head that dissipated quickly, very little toast aroma, quite flat taste, low carbonation, abrupt finish. Better than a generic lager, but not much better.

Draft at my hotelís complimentary dinner in Brentwood (suburban Nashville) Tennessee on April 1, 2013. Large foamy head that quickly headed south leaving little lacing, aroma of malt and sweet grains, some sweet malty taste but mostly watery with an astringent finish. This beer is neither a bock nor much of anything else.

I love dark brown lagers and ales. Michelob Amberbock is a nice example. Beginning with its aroma which is roasted, like fruits also. It has a nice full body, with a healthy reddish brown color, foamy and fuzzy. And, an excellent taste, deep, roasted, and with fruit traces.
