Anheuser-Busch InBev Ziegen Bock – Amber Vienna Lager at 5% ABV

Anheuser-Busch InBev Ziegen Bock Amber Vienna Lager at 5% ABV (On tap at IAH Pappadeaux)

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.) (8/20)

4.5/10 #ryansbooze ryansbooze.com
