Bottle at friend’s party. Pours an orange color with a white head. Nose is sweet malt, some lager yeast, and a bit of booze. Flavor follows the nose with sweet malt, lager yeast, booze, and caramel. Medium in body and nice overall.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. 2011 vintage. Pours a clear, very very dark gold with about a finger of white head. Aroma is quite sweet. Lots of caramel and toffee. Taste is heavily sweet and very light bitter. Caramel and toffee with just a hint of herbal hops. Medium bodied with a thick, sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, not bad. Surprisingly, time has been very good to this beer. I’ll have to go back and see if there are any more of these 2011s left.

Aroma is pale malts and mild fruit undertones. The flavor is mildly sweet malts, caramel and mildly tart finish.

arminjewell (6322) - lansing, Michigan, USA - JUL 19, 2012
Pour on tap, clear orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of sweet fruits, vanilla, honey, caramel, toffee, touch of yeast, hints of sweet candi sugar as well. Taste is a mix of biscuit, bread, yeast, touch of candi sugar, honey, vanilla, some sweet fruits, finishing fairly sweet, slight boozy. Decent but nothing special.

Got lucky and had several 6ers of this one. It is without question much better when the weather is cold, than now when its hot. But I have enjoyed this beer very much. Lite tan blond appearance. Malty nose with some hints of alcohol. Great palate. The balance between the malt and hops are perfect. Malty flavors, not cloying in anyway. Nice clean finish. This brewery makes good German beers.

355ml bottle pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a 2 finger white head that settles quickly and leaves only a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is pale malts with some mild hops and yeast. Taste is malty sweet with some yeast and a light hoppy bitterness. Alcohol is present in this medium bodied and highly carbonted brew. A pleasing mouthfeel is present and this beer is recommended for a good tasting experience.

drowland (6129) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - APR 18, 2012
4/18/12. 12oz bottle. Orange pour with particulates under a small khaki head. Sweet, malty aroma that actually does smell like a doppelbock - sweet, caramel, fruity, etc. Sweet, fruity flavor as well with caramel and light sugars. Not bad!

JMerritt (1823) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - APR 16, 2012
Slightly hazy copper-orange with a small white head. Light alcohol, toffee, orange zest aroma. Raisins, honey, caramel flavor. Fairly rich, yet strangely (and scarily) seeming sessionable.

BigSound (196) - New York, USA - MAR 17, 2012
Transparent golden amber, had about an inch of white head that receded pretty fast. Pretty visible carbonation. Has a nice aroma of malt, light hop and maybe some green apple? Taste is a little tart, green apple, also has some malty notes In the body and some hops in the finish. Also a bit of yeast. Feel is pretty smooth with a medium body and a slight hoppy finish. Overall not to bad I love a good dopplebock, I’ve never seen a blonde one before so I was happy to try it.

Draft at Capital Tap Haus. Pours pretty clear dark gold with orange tint. Small, soapy white head. Nose is biscuity, a bit of clove and citrus. Taste follows suit: bits of rind, spicy finish. Way drinkable for the ABV.
