Very Impressive, easily the besy AB beer, now thats not saying much, but it is a must try. It has a rich oakish taste and toasted nut taste going down with a michelob aftertaste. I’m addicted.

Originally rated on 9/16/08. A step above beer from the likes of bud, coors ect. Nice deep amber body. Caramel malt flavors with a slight bitterness.A decent enough brew, I find this one to be very similar to Ziegen bock.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
DATE: July 8, 2016... OCCASION: watching BattleBots on a Friday night with the fam... GLASSWARE: Michelob pokal... pours a dark amber, almost mahogany body that is nonetheless translucent, framing out a healthy amount of effervescence... the creamy white head sits ably, with variable bubbles... surprisingly robust plum and malt, though sugars suggest a macro birth... a soft, drinkably swift rush is provided, much like a flat soda... the taste is heavy in toasted malts, with plum, apple, and enough caramel to provide a true sweetness... some molasses as well... I find this beer to be above meager expectations, with its flavor profile sweet and sessionable, as a compliment to foods or as a succession of brews...

Berries, caramel,and especially toast aromas. Tastes are of berries, toast, caramel, some brown sugar too.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

This was dark and I guess if I had to choose between Michelob ultra and this then maybe I will choose this beer

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
A hard to detect aroma of malt. Pours a clear brown with no head, kind of flat. Tastes like stale Diet Coke. Slightly sweet caramel with a hint of malt and a slightly tart finish. Watery feel hardly worth drinking.

Backlog. Bottle->shaker. Chestnut brown with small white head. Lite roasted malt, some caramel sweetness on the end. Boring but basically drinkable.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a thin head on a clear dark straw body.
The aroma is faint caramel... and nothing.
The taste is caramel sweetness, then candy sweetness. Not a hint of bitterness to balance it out.
The texture is sticky and fizzy.
