COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Unlike other high-gravity brews, Andygator® is fermented to a dry finish with a slightly sweet flavor and subtle fruit aroma. Reaching an alcohol strength of 8% by volume, it is a Helles Doppelbock.

mansquito (3930) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Oceana, new orleans tap: pours holden with little head. Aroma is sugar and starchy fruit. Taste is mostly sweet. Alcohol is well covered. Otherwise this is pretty meh.

Shark_Pants (378) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 18, 2015
Butterscotch, stewed banana and sweet malts in a generally very sweet aroma. The taste has banana bread and not a lot else. Alcohol not really noticeable. Not bad at all but not highly memorable either.

Rock_Buffalo (23) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 18, 2015
The Andygator pours with a golden glow and light head, accompanied by a cloying waft of almost overly sweet fruit. The head subsides rapidly but the aroma lingers, stinging the nostrils. From the scent, you would expect the Andygator to be almost overwhelming in it's sweetness, but the flavour is less concentrated than the aroma. Eminently drinkable, but not striking in any way, this ale could become a trap at 8% as you don't notice the strength but could easily drink it all day. Frangimus

Bork (411) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - JAN 14, 2015
A highly drinkable but mostly forgettable pale doppelbock. Sweet and malty with notable alcohol, yet not so that it gets disturbing. A little short on the finish.

Not a lot going on in this one. Light style, with a bit of a swampy flavor.

Golden orange color with a little carbonation. The aroma is light fruit and bread dough. Taste is sweet with an abrupt finish.

hotstuff (4393) - Indiana, USA - NOV 27, 2014
Rated on 02-19-2013 at Abita Brew Pub. This draft beer’s appearance is a small white head with a short retention, transparent yellow body, no visible carbonation observed, and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is citrus fruity hops, hint of spice and malt. The flavor mimics the aroma. The mouthfeel is light carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. This beer is quaffable but lacks character.

For what it is, this is a decent beer. I often share this with friends who only drink AALs. Nice gold pour. Small frothy head. Hops, sweetness, and wet grain on the nose. The only sign of the high alcohol is the sweetness in the body. It's a little toasty. There is a little yeast and some dry hop flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hangover (1087) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - NOV 13, 2014
Golden pour with a very thin white head. Yeasty, bready aroma. Flavor is toasted malts with an nice ceral backbone. Lingering straw flavor. Not a hint of the high abv. This one could be very dangerous. Pretty good but it’s sure not a dopplebock as the label implies, certainly an imperial pils per the ratebeer description. I do love an imperial pilsner, this one ain’t bad.
