Soild but unspectacular, not a bad beer although i consider it a bock lite since it lacks the strength and robust flavor of a true bock. Its o.k. when you consider the price. lownote (585) - Austin, Alabama, USA - SEP 6, 2015
Pours dark copper with a bit of head. Clear. Yeasty aroma. Corn? Thin bodied. Pretty light. Low on bitter. Really not awful, just kind of bland. Could use hops. BrewMaster0912 (49) - Marysville, Ohio, USA - JUL 2, 2015
Pours a clear amber color with a thick frothy head, very light carbonation. Has a light caramel scent, you can also smell the hops. The taste is smooth, you can taste the hops and a light caramel flavor as well. vipinvelp (4603) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - MAY 20, 2015
Clear amber, light brown lasting, lacing foam head. Sweet caramel aroma, light caramel taste. (Houston 201505) bartzluke (598) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 15, 2015
6 oz pour from chilled bottle into shaker pint. Quite clear, light brown, moderate carbonation, and a bit of a thin head. Taste is a little nutty. Light body. Fairly weak overall, but nicely drinkable.

no real aroma, maybe a faint barley. Taste is mostly just water. Some very, very faint toffee. the feeling on the palate is soda like. DocJitsu (2079) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - MAR 30, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2016 Pours a clear brown-amber with a quickly dissiapting, off-white head. Light nit’s of fruit with some spoiling milk aroma. Moderately scrubbing on the tongue. Flavors approxinate the nose; though that rancid milk comes out even more noticably. One nearly has to try to make a commercially available beer this bad.
Addendum: I first reviewed this on 3/30/15. Had it again in NOLA on 1/16/16. Much better. I was impressed with how rich the flavor was of this bock. I’m adjusting my rating accordingly. kevinator (2887) - The Colony, Texas, USA - FEB 17, 2015
No aroma detected but a faint sense of old barley. Average bock/amber color with a foamy head. Taste was somewhat bland with a slight toasted hint. Light palate with strong carbonation. Is it better than a macro pale lager? Is that saying much? No. UXO (1896) - CANADA - JAN 31, 2015
Pours pale to medium amber with a short ivory head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, spotty lacing. (3/5) Nose is grainy caramel malt, toasty and slightly nutty. (5/10) Taste is moderate sweet, almost non-existent bitter. (4/10) Light body, moderate to low carbonation, slightly sticky finish. (3/5)
Thin and light bodied despite the darker colour, certainly nothing impressive in the flavours. Mostly malty and boring, with a little toasted flavour that drops dead pretty quickly. Maybe marginally better than most other AB-InBev offerings. (Didn’t know it was AB-InBev when I ordered it, but there wasn’t much doubt by the time I was finished.)

Not horrible and not great either a run of the mill amber a little too carbonated for me and a little on the watery side for flavor about like a more flavorful lite beer.
