Rated while drinking: Light caramel color with a big fluffy off-white head. Subtle whiffs of sweet malts. Flavor is almost like Dundee’s Honey Brown with a thimble of bitterness. "...similar to the bocks of southern Germany"? Pwobway not.

Aroma is nutty malts and caramel/toffee. The flavor is toffee/caramel and a slight edge of industrial malts in the finish.

Bottle: Poured a darker colored amber. Aroma is malty. Taste was a sweet up front caramel malt, but had a candy like licorice finish that seemed almost souring. Leaves the palate dry.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Root beer colored body with no head. Smell is caramel and light molasses. Taste is the same with notes of licorice. Not horrible but too watery. Not really of fan of this but drinkable.

Pours an average bubbly root beer brown with an aroma of watery licorice and retarded coffee malt. Flavor is smoky-sweet malt that just, well, it doesn’t work. It’s watery and it’s everything a half-assed craft-wannabe is; that is, it sucks. Sorry, but it does. Watery mouthfeel. If this is Tejas, I’ll go to hell.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
pours a copper to light red color, with little to no head, which was white. aroma of malt, and caramel, nothing really anything else. the flavor is malty with slight taste of caramel absolutely no hops or bitterness. the palate is very water, and plain. overall this is really boring and not recommended

Dark brown. Caramel smelling and tasting, fake, not good at all. Barely drinkable, but better than a Bud.

At 4%, not sure why they’re calling it a bock, especially when it tastes like a porter. Rootbeer brown color. Tan, creamy head, that goes away after the 2nd sip, which is always within 30 seconds of the first sip, btw. Malty brown aroma. Toasted malt flavor, creamy palate. Roasted malt, velvety finish. I wonder if they used the wrong bottle, or label, for this one. At any rate, an enjoyable beer by any standards.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
last and worst of the pack. 3/3/10.
nice dark copper color with a off white head.
wtf? it smells sweet and sour?... imagine malt syrup flavored cotton candy with lots of citris acid ’for flavor’ mixed with butter and ’green’ (yes green is a flavor).
it tastes the same but some how there is no balance to the sweet.
it is light-medium bodied with a syrupy mouth feel and crisp over carbonation. ouch. 3/3/3/2/3/1.4
