"Darker pour than the average lager. Smells of flowers and grain. Slightly medicinal but not overtly so. Otherwise kinda average across the board. Nothing I’d ever seek out again, but not bad. Cereal is the main player in the flavor, with a slight alcohol kick."

[Bottle] Light amber pour with a fizzy white head. Dusty grain and bread in the nose. Taste is of toffee, light grassy hops and maybe some cocoa powder. Body is typical of Mexican amber lagers. Tasting notes from 2012.

Vcoggins (39) - Cypress, Texas, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Pours a clear amber with a one finger head which dissipates quickly. Smell is mild with lightly toasted grains. Taste of sweet grains with some slight spicy hops. Light bodied, with prickly carbonation. Not a very good representation of a bock, but drinkable.

DiarmaidBHK (3393) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 15, 2013
Bottle from Pizza port Bottle Shop. Pours brown with an inch of brown foam. leaves a fair amount of lacing in the glass. Not much on the nose. It tastes oily and corny and totally disgusting. Jeez what a shitty beer!

Syzzer (590) - Oregon, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Poured from a bottle- color is a legitimate clear brown with off white head that soon reduces to a ring. The smell is a bready-maltyness that is reminiscent of smelling the Rogue brewery. Flavor is that more of an Amber rather than a "bock" which is claimed on the label. Some light maltiness, a vague touch of sour with watery finish. 5.7 BD

ccex (922) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 3, 2013
12 oz bottle pours a clear copper/brown color with quickly vanishing white head but some lacing. Aroma is caramel, cardboard, apple, and vegetables. Average carbonation and a taste that is neither bitter nor sweet. Body is thin. Unfortunately, there is a somewhat mettalic finish. Below average and worse than Dos Equis Amber/Dark..
