Amazing Platinum Blonde Dopplebock! I have had the privilege to taste beers from around the world from Munich to Prague to Bangkok. This is truly one of the beers you must try before you die.

UPDATED: AUG 29, 2003 Among the best I have ever had...Tastes like a tripple. Now on at least two occassions I am like "wow"---A rating I am sure will will roll eyes of our "most-learned" raters!!!

Pours smooth, with an average head that diminishes at a moderate pace. It’s golden amber in appearance, slightly cloudy with virtually no lacing. The flavors of honey and cloves hint at a white chocolate flavor. Palette is sparkly yet smooth, like most Capital beers I’ve tried. The flavor is complex, sweet and clovey which turns slightly bitter only to finish smooth

Except to note the great golden color with hint of amber, I'll leave the detailed descriptions to others. This is simply the best malt liquor I've ever tasted! (A rose by any other name . . . ;>)

Yum. Golden to copper in color with a lacey white head. Light caramel malt and spicey yeast fill the nose. Flavor is so clean. Malty, pilsen and caramel, just a light hint of toast in the finish. Hop character is very subdued, just adding some bitterness. The yeast is spicey, a just noticable ester that I’ve really come to look forward to in the Capital Bocks. This beer is smooth and totally hides the alcohol with its sweet malt charater. Another great lager from Capital.

The GO TO brew for this time of year. Wonderful malty sweetness to this one that is so easy drinking you may be through half a sixer and plastered before you know it. Proceed with caution.

Perhaps this is inducement from my eyes, causing my mouth to imagine things, but I really got a yellow cake element, some distinct spiciness and fruit characteristic, really amazing stuff and a beer that I totally loved. Was actually quite surprised by the mediocre reviews here.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - APR 30, 2003
Very nice. Auburn-gold, ridiculously light for anything dopplebockish. Nose is malty and a bit sour with subtle hints of cocoa. Is expectedly lighter in the flavor and palate than most dopplebocks, but far from thin, has a nice, chewy palate on it. Malts are caramel sweet with very faint chocolate hints for heft. Cannot believe the abv is correct here, simply too quaffable. Excellent, excellent stuff.
