not really a bock but a sweet brownish lager.
considering it comes from AB, I was surprised at the fact that it had some genuine malt taste.
Do not buy this if you want a bock but at a small bar this may be one of the more palatable alternatives. Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - APR 28, 2002
Tried to keep an open mind when I tried this one. Pours a clear, deep red with a quickly fading head. Mouthfeel was soft. Up front, has a hint of a toasty flavor... but it dies out quickly. And did they even use hops in this beer? Finish was a little crisp, but painfully dry. Virtually no aftertaste. A rather feckless attempt. SmellGood (339) - Memphis, Tennessee, USA - APR 25, 2002
Anheuser Busch is trying!! I just don't think they get it.................. Hugerat (452) - somerville, Massachusetts, USA - APR 21, 2002
It's not terrible. Really thin without a lot of flavor. Very easy to drink. BruceLeroy (111) - North Dakota, USA - APR 20, 2002
This is an ok beer. Just ok nothing more nothing less. It is a dark beer, but compared to how it looks it is incredibly watered down. From looking at the bottle you'd think you were buying some really good German sludge, but on the contrary it is too devoid of any flavor to be memorable in any way. Seems to be better off tap than in a bottle. Honestly....out of the bottle I would rather drink Budweiser ponies than this.

This is a very smooth drinking beer. It does not have a 'rich, roasted taste,' but it has a nice malty flavor. This is a good beer in a bar that doesn't have anything but AB products, although it really doesn't taste like a bock. jpfrog (130) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - APR 10, 2002
Decent beer considering it comes from a shitty brewery. It has a nice nutty flavor, but overall this beer is not very satisfying. duece (103) - Waterford, Wisconsin, USA - APR 9, 2002
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2007 Rich malty aroma and full flavor that is as smooth and simple in the first sip as the last. Not as overpowering as a dopplebock but more flavorful than s many ales maxhits (172) - Pico Rivera, California, USA - APR 8, 2002
Light, smooth drinking, with a sweet taste and a long-lasting head. This beer has a deep caramel color; freshness dated. Not a bad effort. quiksilverxtc99 (98) - USA - APR 1, 2002
Very Impressive, easily the besy AB beer, now thats not saying much, but it is a must try. It has a rich oakish taste and toasted nut taste going down with a michelob aftertaste. I'm addicted.
