Like a shitty Yuengling. Bud’s attempt to compete with Shiner in Texas. It’s cheap. DrewFace (969) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - DEC 15, 2014
Light aroma, light caramel and very light roast aroma. Dark brown pour, light white head. Malty, lagery, light caramel malt. Not so bad. Thank goodness for the steak I’m about to eat. BOSSbrewer (2705) - Arkansas, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours a light brown with a thin quickly dissipating head. Aroma of slight caramel. Flavor follows and was slightly sour. Light bodied. Decent beer but not great.

Hey, not too bad. Easy to drink and not over bearing. My go to beer with chili and any other hearty dish I can get my hands on ARH (1125) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 18, 2014
On tap poured into a weizen glass. The aromas are mellow, but malty, with tones of caramel, butterscotch, nuts, and a slight charred quality. It pours a dark, hazy brown orange color (cola) with a light, soapy tan head that disappears completely by mid glass leaving an oily surface and a light lace. The taste is medium levels of sweet with a slight burnt bitterness. The texture is thin and oily with a medium-light body and a light, fuzzy carbonation that comes across as nearly flat. There a dominant nuttiness to the flavor with some citrus and butterscotch. It finishes relatively clean with a light burnt aftertaste that fades fast.

Deep dark brown coloured body with a bit of a cola glow and a super thin, small layer of a tan head. Aroma of vanilla, caster sugar, caramel and a touch of toasted malt and perhaps some light nuts - not much else there at all. Light-bodied; Strong toasted malt flavour with a bit of cereal and grain noticeable, some pungent caramel notes and a little bit of a nutty and metallic twang at the end. Aftertaste shows some decent sweetness, but mainly a grainy, cereal and metallic flavour that doesn’t show too well. Overall, a noticeabley mass produced beer with some decent flavour, but not enough to pass as a good beer worth drinking again. I sampled this pint on draught at Friends Bar in Austin, Texas on 05-May-2014 for US$4.99. Tonkun (1296) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Tap. Amber pour with minimal head. Candy, caramel. Sweet overall with not a lot of flavor Nsanders (1144) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Tap. Deep orange brown with no head. Smells like cream soda with butterscotch. Taste is candy sweet. Body is lighter with a light fizzy feel. Shanebrews (293) - Virginia, USA - MAY 22, 2014
This was developed specifically to compete with Shiner Bock and Sam Adam’s Boston Lager. It is not the equal of either of those beers. Ziegen Bock is thin in the nose and the palate, remarkably thin for an amber beer. The taste is not unpleasant but all malt. It also has no head retention.

On tap at DFW. Aroma is typical dark fruits and malt. A hint of skunky hop but overall pretty malty. Pours brown with a nice frothy head. Taste is figs/dates and heavy malt. Warm and fuzzy in the mouth with a little bit of a cloying finish. Overall a comforting Lager.
