Half-decent, but nothing mind-blowing. Virtually no head, much like my married life. Very smooth finish with a hint of caramel. Really, it tastes like a darker version of the mass-produced American Standards. Cool bottle though. pjk33 (390) - Sligo - Curllsville Heights, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 24, 2003
Nothing incredibly special about this beer. Nice deep amber color, not much head or lacing. A little hoppy but very little body in this beer. Not much to it. This beer has nothing on Shiner. Too thin and watery. Dogbrick (13789) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 23, 2003
800 beers and no end in sight. This beer is a light amber color with a medium thin off-white head that disappeared quickly. Thin and quick lacing. The aroma is faint sweet malt. Kind of thin with a light hops and honey-nutty flavor. The finish is lightly sweet with a hint of hops bitterness. This isn't a terrible beer, it just doesn't pack much punch. captspastic (21) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 17, 2003
Easily the best beer that AB brews hands down. Not quite as pronouced as the Shiner Bock counterpart it competes with, but the overall taste and body of this beer makes for a very tasty brew. Evster64 (107) - Kempner, Texas, USA - NOV 12, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2004 People see the Anheuser-Busch label and immediately, their ability to rate objectively evaporates. This bock, which is actually Busch’s answer to another Texas bock "Shiner", is in my opinion, superior to its local counterpart. "Zeeg" has a lightly sweet aroma, light head, deep amber appearance, with a lightly hoppy start and a wonderfully smooth finish. You can’t get this beer anywhere but in Texas, and it isn’t a Chimay by any stretch. However, it has been, at least thus far, very underrated here.

Insipid. bland, distasteful, flat, flavorless, mild, savorless, stale, unappetizing, unpalatable, unsavory, vapid, watered down, watery. Yawn. carboloader (674) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 14, 2003
Pours a dark caramel color with medium-sized white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is malt and otherwise nondescript. A lot of carbonation with a bland malty flavor. Not even close to a Shiner in my opinion (especially on draft where you get Shiner's nutty flavor). Aggie80 (829) - Michigan, USA - SEP 28, 2003
Spotted this on the way to visit a buddy in TX. Never seen it before so I had to get a sixer. Okay, but nothing notable or even special. Good color, nice head, some lacing. Rather bland maltish flavor. Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - SEP 21, 2003
Brown color small head that faded fast,light malt aroma with a maybe small caramel as well.The taste was nothing special light malt semi sweet with little else to offer.The after taste was forgettable with mainly light malt.This is a dissappointing brew and is only good for trying once anything else would be palate suicide. kyzr (1596) - Montana, USA - SEP 16, 2003
Brown colored Bud is what I thought when I tasted it. Way too much carbination for my liking. Tasted more hints of a nut brown that an American dark.
