A mediocre beer at best. Was a little disappointed with this beer. Seemed like a commercially brewed beer. The flavor was lacking and the complexity was nil.

Best overall everyday beer I have found so far. Price is excellent for the quality

Deep copper color, medium head. Lightly hopped, medium malted. Nice light tasty malty bock. Rich flavor, smooth maltyness. Nice beer. Finish is smooth. Aftertaste is malty, not bitter.

Draft- A great mild flavored beer for when you want something thirst quenching but still flavorful. This would be a great transition beer for those MillBudCoors drinkers out there who want to discover what real beer tastes like.

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2003 Great not cheap but not expensive beer. Nice to drink when I don"t feel like forking out for the great stuff.

OK, OK. Maybe it is thin for a bock, but I do enjoy the taste.

This is a great lite-bock. Perfect for summertime guzzling. The serious bock drinker will find this brew watery and bland, but for those new to bocks or the lite beer crowd (whose opinions do not matter), this is the bock for them. Also, this is a great beer with hambergers which most bocks are not.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2006 This is my staple brew. Whenever I don’t know what to get, I always pick up a 12 pack of this. Living in Texas requires you to drink this on a regular basis as well. Nothing special here, but definitely head and shoulders above most beers in the supermarket beer cooler. Re-Rate 23-Mar-2006: This is one of my favorite "lower-tier" beers when on tap. This beer has the perfect balance of sweetnes and bitterness and *taste* for easy drinking. Since most restaurants don’t carry anything "good", I usually get this beer. Keep in mind I think this beer is much better on tap than from the bottle. This is definitely my top beer if you measure by volume consumed. For that, I will give it +8 points on the overall total.

Malty aroma with a strange hop bouquet. Decent body, but sort of bland. Not a bad beer, but nothing to write home about.

Nice clear amber color with a full head. The aroma was bready and malty, but the flavor was pretty bland. In all, this was uninspiring.
