I agree. It's a nice beer and I wouldn't mind cloning it.

I like this one too.  In fact, most of the beers in the  Michelob specialty  line seem to be pretty good.   Except of course  for Ultra...which has almost as much flavor as seltzer.  The way I see it, the inclusion of Ultra under the Michelob banner of brands defeats the premium image that they otherwise seem to be fostering.

I also like Michelob Classic Lager ...I think it's a great value and  a criminally under-rated and very well made product that gets lost in the massive choices one sees these days on the store shelves.

It's interesting...quite a few beer geeks I know are starting to re-visit some of these big brewery offerings and they find themselves surprised at how much they enjoy them.

i almost went for the classic lager.  in comparison, the cost of a 12 pack was reasonable compared to craft brews as well. again very pleasantly surprised.

I agree.  Amber bock is a decent beer.  I also enjoy the classic lager from time to time.  My enjoyment of the classic lager started in college and has never gone away.

Kegs of amberbock were the go to choice back in my grad school days.  We could float those things in no time.
