Easily the best beer that AB brews hands down. Not quite as pronouced as the Shiner Bock counterpart it competes with, but the overall taste and body of this beer makes for a very tasty brew.

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2004 People see the Anheuser-Busch label and immediately, their ability to rate objectively evaporates. This bock, which is actually Busch’s answer to another Texas bock "Shiner", is in my opinion, superior to its local counterpart. "Zeeg" has a lightly sweet aroma, light head, deep amber appearance, with a lightly hoppy start and a wonderfully smooth finish. You can’t get this beer anywhere but in Texas, and it isn’t a Chimay by any stretch. However, it has been, at least thus far, very underrated here.

Insipid. bland, distasteful, flat, flavorless, mild, savorless, stale, unappetizing, unpalatable, unsavory, vapid, watered down, watery. Yawn.

Pours a dark caramel color with medium-sized white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is malt and otherwise nondescript. A lot of carbonation with a bland malty flavor. Not even close to a Shiner in my opinion (especially on draft where you get Shiner's nutty flavor).

Spotted this on the way to visit a buddy in TX. Never seen it before so I had to get a sixer. Okay, but nothing notable or even special. Good color, nice head, some lacing. Rather bland maltish flavor.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - SEP 21, 2003
Brown color small head that faded fast,light malt aroma with a maybe small caramel as well.The taste was nothing special light malt semi sweet with little else to offer.The after taste was forgettable with mainly light malt.This is a dissappointing brew and is only good for trying once anything else would be palate suicide.

Brown colored Bud is what I thought when I tasted it. Way too much carbination for my liking. Tasted more hints of a nut brown that an American dark.

bleh. another crap attempt (see AmberBock) to cut into Shiner's market. Shiner still has the market on dark lager/'bock light' fellas

Well I'll give credit for A-B for trying (just not very well) to make a local beer style, yep it's an attempt too cut into Shiner Bocks market (didn't aim very high on this one). Really very bland, nothingness beer. Some maltness charcateristics. Just don't get fooled again beer.

A very "horsey" beer. Horse shit aroma, horsey barnyard flavors, but not in that good Belgian way. This is rated almost as high as Shiner Bock, but Shiner is much better, and actually a quaffable product. This stuff is pretty rancid. Ugh.
