This rice-bock is not a real bock, though it has hints of bock flavor. Everyone criticizing it is comparing it to DOPPELBOCKS, which are not the same as BOCKS. Bocks, like Shiner and Saxer are damn hard to find and taste a bit maltier than this weak offering from Michelob. Save yourself a beer bummer and get something else.

Had this in a monstrous 32 oz draft version at a crappy and bland steakhouse, it was quite nose-less even for such a huge amount. There was a hint of malt among the big carbonation and fizziness, but was otherwise tasteless. I didnt get near the halfway mark with this cheap boring beer.

not all that bad. not fantastic - but better than what Id expected. Definitely not a real bock beer (hell - its got rice in it) - but drinkable. Slight smokey note on the end. Not a bad alternative to samuel adams or bass if your looking for something easy to drink after mowing the backyard. Note - Im a big bock fan - and to all those saying this was their first bock beer - you havent had a true bock yet. Go down to the local snob-supermarket and get yourself a Willbrau Ur-Bock, Spaten Optimator, Moretti Dark, heck - even a Sam Adams Winter Lager. Then youve had a bock.

Thebest bock for the money, if its a bock. For 3.50 a six pack it just cant be beat. Of course thats also the only time to get it too. It is pretty weak and doesnt have anything that jumps out at you.

A decent, enjoyable bock beer. Im partial to the doppelbock style myself, but this is worth the occasional drink on a tighter budget. Something about Michelob/A-Bs side-products has made a positive impression on me in comparison to the other stuff usually found in the grocery cooler/aisle. Definitely been better than average, anyway. Not a big fan of their Black & Tan, though I think thats just me.

I bought one six pack that tasted good, then got another that was extremely skunky. I think that it is a decent beer, and I am extremely surprised that it came from Michelob. Re-rate: I bought another six-pack a week ago and must say that each time I taste this, I like it less and less. Maybe its because Im finding a little bit better stuff to try now.

Stinky. Cola brown, not amber, with off-white head. Decent appearance, but thin with ersatz carbonation. Better than Bud & Mic, worse than Petes or Sam Adams.

I like this beer. It was one of the first beers that I ever thought was worth drinking. Good aftertaste and long finish.
