12 oz bottle. Little aroma, some malt. Flavor was mostly malt, not a rich yeasty bock flavor as I expected. Come to think of it, it tasted more like the dark lager it’s categorized as. Oh well. Not that great.

Dark copper pour. No head to speak of. Highly carbonated, think body. Toasted malt aroma, bland taste. Bleh.

Bronze orange color. Little head. Taste of malt, yams, copper bread, and salty cheese. Good considering the low abv. One is plenty, or forever.

ordybill (92) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - SEP 10, 2014
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass, Aroma- Has a slight doughy aroma with a floral hop backdrop Appearance- An amber to dark brown color, Slight off white head that does not linger. Taste- A nice malt flavored beer with some bitterness Palate- A medium bodied beer with a medium carbonation level. This pairing works for me Overall- A pretty good bock style beer. If someone has not experienced this style of beer I would recommend that they try this one first, I think this is a nice mid-range flavor for this style

Pleasant caramel malt taste. Smooth wit h no bitterness. Mild malt aroma. Clear dark brown color with a head that thins out quick. Surprisingly refreshing for a dark beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MaltOne (217) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 1, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2014 Pours clear chestnut brown, brief fizzy head. Aroma is beery... that aroma you get when walking into college beer hall... yeasty dough. Flavor is lightly sweet malt. Palate is a little like drinking root beer (with less fizz). For a beer it is watery. It?s not bad - straight forward, barley pop.

djaquay (120) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2014
On tap at Reading Phils game. Medium amber pour under a thin light tan head. Simple, a little sweet, malty flavor, nothing too heavy or sticky. Good for a ballgame, but nothing amazing.

Decent product. As a Texan I am a little biased to the product. I believe that Shiner is an average beer at best that is worth trying if you are looking to expand your horizons to lagers within the United States. Other than that, not much more to write about. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Like PBR with caramel color. Has nothing whatsoever to do with a Bock beer.

While their are plenty of other beers that i’d prefer over this one, this is old faithful. Although it doesn’t taste all that great, this is a piece of home. When I was traveling for work for extended periods of time, this was a little piece of home that i was able to enjoy in the pacific northwest.

DeanF (1716) - Nunavut, CANADA - AUG 26, 2014
Okay malt and nut aroma. Has almost no head but a nice brown copper body. Flavour is a bit of dry malt with a medium finish. It’s a rather boring bock.
