3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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!

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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Pours a slightly hazy amber with an off-white head that disappears and leaves some lacing. The aroma is mainly honey and cloves with a bit of yeast. The cloves are stronger in the taste along with some malt and yeast and a sweet aftertaste.

bottle - pours almost clear amber with nice tan head along with some lacing. Nose is caramel malts, yeast, alcohol and candy. Aroma is nutty, alcohol, old-timer fruit and sheer pleasure. Sweet all around. Quite possibly my favorite new beer since Malheur 12. I will be having this one again and will share it.
