COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our winter seasonal, the Fisherman’s Navigator is a German-style doppel-bock of exceptional quality, flavors and body. With a toasty biscuit-like malt backbone, it’s unlike any beer you’ve had while managing to remain strictly within a centuries old style.

This years Doppelbock style lager has no spices as it did last year but offers a spectacular mouthful of flavor. EXCEPTIONAL!! Ready Nov 1st

March Ale Alpharetta. Toasted wheat, caramel, brown sugar, biscuity. Pretty on point for the style.

16 oz. can, shared at Ale Alpharetta. Clear brown, with a thin, beige head. Nice nose of light coffee, caramel, a little salt, and syrup. Very sweet, with a touch of bitterness. Medium to heavy body, creamy, and clean. This is not a bad doppelbock.

Cybercat (3801) - Georgia, USA - MAR 19, 2015
Pours clear Amber with a nice eggshell head. Aroma has notes of toasted malt and dusty hops. Flavor has toasted malt, caramel, and subtle hoppy tones. Texture has average body and fizz. Navigate to any bar or beer store that had it.

Growler from the brewery. Pour is a brownish amber. Lighter and clearer than I was hoping, but still looks nice and is appropriate for the style. Thin head. Nose is sweet and fruity. Raisins and some nutty malt. Flavor is the same. Honey, candied pecans, red apple. Very sweet but not sticky. No hops or bitterness. Super smooth, slick palate. Really appealing mouthfeel for the style. Growler was consumed day of fill, but carbonation is low. Again, appropriate for the style. I picked this up hoping for a darker beer more like Celebrator, so I was initially disappointed, but it’s still a solid beer. Probably a little too much unchecked sweetness, but the style is all about malt, so I can’t complain.

Draft @ Cape Ann. Served year round since it’s July and I just drank it a few hours ago. Light amber color with thin head in a shaker glass. Aroma is caramel malt, toasted grain and light lager yeast.

Flavor is again toasted grain, caramel malt, mild hints of fruit and light brown sugar. The carbonation gives a creamy texture that ends sweet. All malt in this brew, as it should be. For the style is just above average and I’m glad the spice was taking away from the recipe several years back. It is a nice, straight forward example of the style and not overly complex. German lager loves will not get to excited but it should do you just fine if you like this style.

Pours a hazy garnet color with a minimal beige head. Sweet toasted malt aroma has notes of agave syrup. Soft toasted malt flavor has a touch of caramel and vanilla bean. Slightly spicy with a hint of cinnamon on the palate. Overall, just average.

Not a giant fan of this one. Tastes slightly burnt, whether a burned candy or even butter. Medium bodied with a decent head.

GCB Draught. This is really cloying and heavy beyond what i am used to for the style.

drowland (6636) - Georgia, USA - JUL 30, 2013
3/28/13. Sampled during CBC 2013. Amber red pour with a small khaki head. The aroma shows dates and dark fruits, but mostly caramel and biscuit from the malts. Malty flavor as well, plenty of caramel and biscuit, touches of fruitiness. Not bad.
