Smells malty, lots of metal, which is freakin' nasty. POurs a deep red/brown, very very small head, extremely thin lace. Flavor is apples on the start, malty middle, and metallic fiish. Aftertaste of bitter apple core. Honestly, I thought this would be a whole lot worse...

A tasty beer, and fairly good quality. I think it is mislabled and actually fits the description of a Dunkel more than a Bock. Not nearly enough malt and mouthfeel to be a Bock. Flavor is good with just a hint of hops, but mostly malt. A little bit thin overall.

People in Austin seem to love this beer. It is everywhere you go there. Well, people near here love Bud Light, too, so there is no accounting for favorites. I found it to be a nice beer with a reddish color and ample foam (i had it from keg) that soon dissipated. And while the aroma was unpleasant, the taste was enjoyable. Very little substance to it, but it made for a nice beer.

wildchefbill (245) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - OCT 4, 2003
Dark amber with small dissapating head. Fairly stong malty aroma. Good neutral flavor. Not too sweet, almost no bitterness. Much better and more full bodied than other US brews at this price. Not bad.

BrewEd (182) - Wilmington, North Carolina, USA - OCT 3, 2003
I get this on tap frequently when in Houston. A couple steps above most macros. Ruby/amber in color with a nice toasted malt taste. Not exceptional but enjoyable.

JorisPPattyn (7771) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 2, 2003
(draught) Mixture of brown, gold and greenish shine, totally clear. Virtually no head left after 30". Malty nose, like German dark malts, bready. Tast is a bit neutral-sweet. Bread-taste is authentic enough. An USA Bock for Germans. Filling without being full-bodied. Alcohol apparent, not overwhelming. It's convincing enough. Why all the bad critics? The manufacturer prejudice?

Compared to budmillercoors, this is the best beer ever made. For an American macrobrew, very good!

stumbled into this beer in a lounge in DC. Everyone looked at me like i was crazy. A light block with with an average "feel." I would say that the description is about 20% acurate... but i'm not saying why :)

kyzr (1147) - Belgrade, Montana, USA - SEP 16, 2003
Good amber color with average head. Not a ton of aroma, but its there. Light roast flavor, but too much fiz for me. Decent drinking bock for warm climate.

Decent Texan bock beer. Common as Budweiser, Miller, and Coors across Texas. Has a deep amber color and medium head.
