It is a beer. Looks like flat cola and tastes like watered julmust. I could drink a lot of it. Just not noteworthy. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

tectactoe (3118) - Michigan, USA - SEP 22, 2013
UPDATED: APR 1, 2014 Tap: Deep brown with mahogany hints... Almost red-ish. Barely any head, beige tinted and more of a skin than anything. Aroma is very subdued. Slightly metallic, grainy, with a very faint hint of toasty, caramel malt. Uninspired. Taste is a bit better, with some light buttery toffee malt, faint caramel, toasty bread, and light cocoa powder sweetness. Notable crisp yeast, somewhat astringent and sharp metallic bitterness that hinders but doesn’t kill things. Clean finish with some mild residual sweetness and a dry breadiness. Not great but fairly mediocre.

Bottle: taste is a little bit of yeast. This is not really a great beer because the taste is not really there. A good drunk beer.

ben4321 (4781) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 12, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2013
Location: Draft at IAH, 9/12/13

Aroma: The nose is light and malty, some earthy and must notes, quite faint though
Appearance: The pour is a nice dark amber color with a froth of beige head
Flavor: The taste is sweet and malty, lacks a balancing hop presence of any kind
Palate: This one feels a little watery and slightly sticky, plus-carbonation, short finish
Overall Impression: When this is the closest thing to craft you have other than Sam, you have a beer selection issue. You didn’t need to know this was AB to know this was AB. AB making a beer only for Texas: your expectations will be correct. At least it has a decent look.

GIJOE (927) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Smells like Bud, looks like Bud, tastes a little better than Bud. You can put a suit on a pig, but it's still a pig. Only available in Texas and they can keep it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Light, non-offensive yet watered down amber. Basically Texas's way of saying, "We label our Amber Bock just a little different 'round here."

Headbanger (3536) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 21, 2013
12oz bottle 7/21/13 (Judicious Spirits-Mountain Home)-42° in Hurricane Glass-Pours a clear medium amber with a small tan head. Aroma of malt, caramel, and toffee. Taste of slight malt. This light ot medium bodied brew is lacking greatly but it is an AB product.

Cybercat (4033) - Georgia, USA - JUL 8, 2013
Pours barely translucent cola brown, not much head. Aroma has malty and caramel notes and a hint of horehound. Flavor is mainly caramel with malty d horehound notes. Smooth, firm, fizzy texture finishes the experience. Overalll, not too shabby. Fine with lunch.
