smooth, great, the bock...2112 bigal9699 (152) - Orange County, California, USA - JUN 16, 2002
Hmmm - what can I say - they tried, they failed. Very thin palate and flavors. Its not bad for a macro - but there are so many nicer quality bocks available at just a tad more of a price. Want a nice affordable bock - try Salvator. srqbeerman99 (15) - sarasota, Florida, USA - JUN 15, 2002
Hey, remember michelob dark? Well they tried again but didnít quite get there. Itís a pour in a glass wannabe dark impersonator!

I fully appreciate Michelobís (AB) interest in different types of brews, and I applaud them for taking that bold step that many domestic/macro brews donít. Unfortunately, this beer heavy on the acidic alcohol taste that warm domestics are known for. This beer should have just been called Michelob Amber as there is no trace of a Bock flavoring within its contents. A decent beer on the wallet, but a disappointment on the pallet. mattduling (64) - Fairmont, West Virginia, USA - JUN 7, 2002
It is good to get a beginner broke into dark beer. Good transition beer from college to real beer drinking.

Better then most cheap American macro brews. But still not that good. The color was quite nice, the head was nothing spectular. Overall, if I donít have it agian I wonít miss it. qwikstreet (43) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2002
A nice dark tasting lager. It is not too strong that limits you to only a few bottles a night. I can drink this all night. JPDIPSO (6216) - Wauwatosa, USA - MAY 28, 2002
Amber, yes. Bock, no. AS typical for most large brewery specialty brews the flavor is derived from specialty grains than the brewing method and use of quality malts. I guess I have picked this when the only other options are the typical american standards. VA Homebrewer (525) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - MAY 28, 2002
Slightly disappointing as I expected this to be at least a reasonable attempt at a good beer. Maybe a little more malt sweetness, but the rice is still very evident. Aside from the light malt increas and a darker color, this is no more impressive than regular olí Michelob. greystreet80 (191) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 23, 2002
Surprisingly tasty, a decent combination; the amber and the bock. Itís not too strong of a bock or an amber. But it is very rich and filling.
