2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A-B runs full-page ads for this in BYO, but considering how they boast about using rice right on the label, I don't see why. Decent enough color. Thin head fizzles away like any Budweiser. There's a hint of roastiness here, and a slightly bitter hop aftertaste that lingers briefly. Another mega brew, easily forgotten.
But it might have gone better had the bottle I had at Bennigan's not been served in their usual frosty glasses. How a place with over 20 beer taps care so little about beer stumps me. For the $5 they charged, I could have a fine imperial at any brewpub.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
A specialty beer with a rich, roasted taste. [Name is in CamelCase] An American bock-style lager brewed with three unique malts including roasted and caramel and specialty malts. This dark mahogany lager has a rich, nutty aroma with a gentle hint of caramel malt sweetness. This American-style bock has a deep malty body that pours with a tall head.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle pours a clear brownish amber with a thin off-white head, absent of any lacing whatsoever. Smells like rust and malt. Flavor is an improvement over the aroma with sweet malt flavor and other subtle tastes. Aftertaste is sweet malt. Overall, a little too bland, a little too sweet, but certainly not awful.

Originally rated on 9/16/08. A step above beer from the likes of bud, coors ect. Nice deep amber body. Caramel malt flavors with a slight bitterness.A decent enough brew, I find this one to be very similar to Ziegen bock.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
DATE: July 8, 2016... OCCASION: watching BattleBots on a Friday night with the fam... GLASSWARE: Michelob pokal... pours a dark amber, almost mahogany body that is nonetheless translucent, framing out a healthy amount of effervescence... the creamy white head sits ably, with variable bubbles... surprisingly robust plum and malt, though sugars suggest a macro birth... a soft, drinkably swift rush is provided, much like a flat soda... the taste is heavy in toasted malts, with plum, apple, and enough caramel to provide a true sweetness... some molasses as well... I find this beer to be above meager expectations, with its flavor profile sweet and sessionable, as a compliment to foods or as a succession of brews...

This was dark and I guess if I had to choose between Michelob ultra and this then maybe I will choose this beer

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
A hard to detect aroma of malt. Pours a clear brown with no head, kind of flat. Tastes like stale Diet Coke. Slightly sweet caramel with a hint of malt and a slightly tart finish. Watery feel hardly worth drinking.

Backlog. Bottle->shaker. Chestnut brown with small white head. Lite roasted malt, some caramel sweetness on the end. Boring but basically drinkable.
