Good average bock. Lacking a little maltiness. Easy to drink. I would buy this.

From a bottle. Dark amber with sizeable tan head, faint malt aroma. Thinnish, not as rich flavored as you would expect for this style. Finish is not unpleasant, but not exciting either. Drinkable, a nice Yuengling.

mike67 (1043) - , New Jersey, USA - JAN 7, 2015
12 oz bottle. Pours light brown with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head. Aroma is of sweet caramel malt, grassy hops and some cherries. Body is medium and slightly crisp. Taste is of caramel malt, herbal hops and some dark fruit, well balanced. Finish is long, semi-dry. Exceeded my expectations.

Bottle->shaker. Brown with small white head. Bread, grains, nuts, caramel. Boring.

chinchill (3881) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 8, 2014
12 oz bottle. Clear dark reddish-brown body covered by a decent head that had good retention. Aroma: attractive light and medium malts with a hint of toffee. Flavor: a bit weaker than expected (from aroma), and more like a brown ale than anticipated. Excellent bitter-sweet balance. O: best Yuengling? ... maybe. Certainly much better than expected and preferable to most major brewery offerings.

Caramel-colored, with a medium-sized head. Pretty standard bock - not bad, but not fantastic. Some spice, malt, and yeast notes.

Transfer from BA review on 2-12-12 - Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance Ė Pours a light brown color with a white head. The head fades very fast leaving just the slightest bit of lacing. Smell Ė Bready malt mixed with a bit of caramel. Nothing too potent, but not lacking either. Taste Ė Bready sweetness of some roasted malts mixed in with a bit of caramel are the initial tastes present. These last through the taste experience, but fade in intensity as time progresses. Toward the very end of the taste there is an ever so light amount of bitterness which finishes off the sweet flavors and round out the taste quite nicely actually. Mouthfeel Ė Moderate body and moderate carbonation. Very average. For the bock style it may have a bit too much carbonation; but really not too bad. Overall Ė For the price, Yuengling comes though again. While not the best bock you will have, they make a pretty decent brew at a good price.

bubbleflubber (2139) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - MAY 18, 2014
Brown pour into the glass, with a nice eggshell head that leaves soapy lacing. The nose is of caramel and corn (and not caramel corn). Flavors of caramel, some marshmallow, and a light seltzer-water finish. The body is thin with a watery mouthfeel. Not a stellar bock, but goes down well enough, I guess.

keanex (1701) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - APR 12, 2014
Appearance: Perfectly clear reddish/brown/amber body with a foamy and messy off-white head.
Aroma: Sweet caramel, perhaps a touch of corn, and a very mild fruitiness. This smells very nice, definitely respectable and itís easy to figure out the style from the aroma.
Taste: A touch of malty sweetness hinting at caramel and a prominent overlying fruitiness by the finish hints at cherry. The finish has a slight tinge of metal on the finish though. Definitely an enjoyable beer that Iím not thinking about, itís just a solid beer.
Palate: Medium bodied, moderately carbonated.
Overall: This is a good beer, it has no pretense itís just here to be drank. Itís cheap and straddles the border between macro and craft to bridge beer drinkers alike.
