caramel color. almost like a cola. it basically tastes like a yuengling with a little more flavor and less of a bitter palate. pretty good stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark amber body, medium to thin light tan head, spotty lacing. Toasted malts, toffee, and a hint of floral hops. Medium bodied, gentle carbonation, a hint of sweetness, slightly thin finish.

First beer rating for me. Iím partial to bock, not a Yuengling fan but saw this and gave it a try. This is light compared to other bocks Iíve tried and finishes with that Yuengling after taste but its not as strong as the lager after bite. I would drink again but would rather have a Shiner.

Pours mahogany into a shaker. Off-white head crackles and recedes to skim surface. Toffee and molasses aromas. Dry with sweet caramel and toffee upfront turning to mild bitter earth in the medium length finish.

Clear brown pour with light tan head. Aroma is lightly toasted malt with a little sweet caramel. Taste follows the nose. Not bad, but not really a favorite.

Dark cloudy pour. Thick off-white head. Taste of sweet and toasted malts, caramel, sugar. Too thin for my liking. Good effort from Yuengling

dagimp (698) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2014
From a 12 oz purchased at Whole Foods. Pours a light brownish purplish clear. Just darker than regular Lager. Not much aroma but a little sweetness. Mouthfeel is light and smooth. Very drinkable. Taste is mildly sweet and fruity. I rather liked this as a cheap easy drinking session beer. Better than Shiner Bock as it has more flavor. Beach anyone? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pour from a 12oz bottle. Dark copper color, off white head that a little more than 1 finger. leaves some lacing. Smell of toasty malt with caramel and some bread. Taste of sweet malt, caramel, with something almost biscuit. Very easy drinking Bock thatís not as BIG as most bocks. Good beer over all!

Onslow (1130) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Clear dark brew, rather like a cola in color, with off white head. Aroma of caramel malts, toasted malt, astringent hops. Taste follows aroma - a little sweet malt at the start, bready, rather simple but distinct astringent bitterness in the finish. Sometimes I think nostalgic about the bocks of days gone by - Pabst Bock, Miller Bock, Strohís Bock... this brew is probably about as close to those as you can get these days and while it is OK, it is not a the brightest star in the brewers firmament.
