2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Disappointed by this one... tastes more like a malt liquor than a bock. Too sweet, and really not much else.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Copper in color with a bit of red, musty hop metallic aroma. Malty metallic flavour. For a beer called a Bock itís light bodied and very boring. It's always amusing to try a macro style Bock...

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Better story on the label than the beer in the twist-off bottle, though not too shabby. A bit thin, certainly nowhere near full flavored, an attempt at some malty sweetness, more color than body yet indeed drinkable.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Appearance: clear bronze, with an admirable, bone-white, 1/2" froth.
Aroma: mild, even nearly negligible, with tiny hints of nuts and caramel.
Taste: rather flat and blase, flinty, even, at first, a nothing of a mouthfeel with very minor character. Mighty quick finish. Leaves the palate rather dryly. Flavor possesses traces of those nutty, sweet, malty characteristics, but theyíre just a faint whisper in the wind. Malt is dominant, as much as such a mild-mannered component can be, and hops donít seem to be around at all.
Not a beer Iíd ever feel like drinking again, but Iíd slug it in a pinch. Considering itís popularity in itís home state, Iím rather relieved that certain Texans are choosing this instead of Lone Star.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Most repulsive Bock EVER. Very unbalanced, just tasted somewhat funky and out there. Roasty and Malty.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Fairly average to slightly below average bock. Perhaps compromised by production. Nothing special.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a nice very dark reddish colour with an off white head that quickly dissipated. The Aroma was of high carbonation and maybe very little malt mash. The beer is light and refreshing with a slightly bitter after taste. I would have this with spicy or smoked food. Salud!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pretty decent amber lager/bock beer. Refreshing all around and real cheap down south. I remember drinking this on spring break a few years ago in florida- before I even knew what it was. Nice deep copper color with slight head. Malty taste with little hops in the background. Good finish.
