seymour (1323) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - AUG 20, 2012
Tasted 12 oz brown bottle (distinctive Anheuser-Busch design similar to AmberBock, Michelob Porter, etc) into nonic pint glass. Poured a nice medium amber color with tall beige foam and lots of sticky lace. Aromas were weak, but some oxidized malt syrup, caramelized brown sugar, almost no hops, no yeast presence. Flavor was sugary, caramelly, with an odd and artificial-tasting candy sweetness. Light-medium body, average carbonation, syrupy aftertaste. Blah, as expected, but not downright awful. Indistinguishable from AmberBock, and almost certainly designed to undercut the superior Shiner Bock on their home turf.

Pours a pleasing amber with no head or lacing. Aroma is minimal. The taste is slightly malty and crisp. This and Shiner Bock are two of my favorite "session" beers with the boys. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear brown pour with an off white head. Aroma is somewhat nutty with a bit of caramel and bread. Taste is very faint bread and caramel.

Brown clear no head. Fizzy. Very sweet....like soda. Kind of bland. Pretty poor amber.

Very drinkable. Nice brown color. Not much smell. Taste is sweet, with a creamy hint, and slight vanilla. Smooth and light. Had on tap at the airport. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MrBunn (2391) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2012
On tap. Described by the barkeep as a dark "Texas beer." When in Texas, I guess... Body is a really dark amber or a fairly light brow. And head is very small. Aromas are sweet and sugary with caramel and toffee, almost like a Werthers or something. Flavor let’s less of the cloying caramel show through than I would have guessed as it is balanced out by a slightly cidery apple presence that seems a little out of place. I’m starting to miss beers that aren’t "Texas beers."

Nice, bread malty pils brewed in St. Louis, MO, available only in Texas. Clean, cold, yard beer that goes great with burgers, pizza or mowing the lawn.

Drank a pint at a mexican joint in the Dallas-Fort Worth airport. My waiter told me it is brewed "in the area" but further research shows that this is an Anheuser-Busch creation. It’s not bad, smooth and malty with hints of caramel and brown sugar. This beer isn’t too heavy and went well with my enchiladas.

Bottle is mediocre, tap is actually ok. It tastes a bit sour, actually. The Budweiser clone of shiner bock, not as good though.
