Bottle… Clear yellow lager with a mid-sized, fluffy, white head. Excellent retention. Grainy, acidic, grapefruit and lemon peel aroma. Medium to full-bodied and lightly creamy with lively carbonation. Well-balanced. Mildly bitter with slight honey sweetness and a suggestion of tanginess – also, sort of boring and grainy. Finishes gently acidic, delicately bitter and dry.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Very pale golden beer. Aroma is loaded with fusels and corn. Higher alcohols, pale malts and other sweet nastiness. This is a malt liquor, not a doppelbock. Really terrible.
