I’m a little surprised they get away with calling this a bock. Bocks tend to have a more full body and malty taste but this is simply a darker version of Michelob without the head. Nonetheless, it is a very drinkable beer and is quite agreeable on tap. Whenever I travel to Texas it seems to be ubiquitous. That’s OK I guess since it is a middle of the road session beer. Not very special but accomodating.

This is not the same beer it was 10 years ago. It has changed into a watered down beer that is easy to drink floating down the Guadalupe river.Very little head ; brown to amber color ; malty cardboard aroma ; light taste. Perfect for all day summer consumtion when water or the lite beers won’t do

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2004 Attractive appearance but not very flavorful. Light body, too thin for a proper bock. Still quite drinkable, but nothing extraordinary.

no too much taste. Some hoppy flavors, otherwise pretty watery flavor. Nice color but does not make up for the taste

Pours a brown/red color. Smell is malty and also a little sour. Flavor is malty and bitter. Also a little watery. Not a very good bock.

nice dark bock, but not a very full taste, needed more distinctive charactor and a longer lasting head, though the pale blonde head was nice while it lasted.

Bottle. Light brown, sweet doughy malt aroma, nice body. Flavor is roast grain, bready malt, and some acidity that kind of ate away at the tip of my tongue. Drank it at a bar so it was sure better that the A, M, or C. Nice session beer.

Bottled. Boring, Boring, Boring. This tasted like nothing but a beer. Not distictive charactor at all.

On draught at Pappadeaux in the Houston airport. Glad to finally find this classic Texan beer. Copper-colored with a thin off-white head. Toasted grain and malt in the nose. Medium-bodied with a flavor somewhere between a Bock and an Adjunct Lager. Malt, stale hops and caramel are what the beer offers. The finish is smooth and does not contain much flavor other than some sweet malt. I can’t really call this beer a disappointment because it met my expectations. It does not do the Bock style justice though.
