I'd like to retract all previous statements and say that THIS is the best Anheuser Busch beer I've ever had. I honestly don't see how they could get any better unless they start brewing a Christmas ale comparable to Sam Smith's. This didn't have the roasted character common to many standard bock's, but it was darker and richer. I did notice a sweetness that reminded me a lot of something else, until I realized that it tasted a bit like Killian's, which is one of my staple beers. Not as good, but similar. Definitely more of a bock than Shiner.
