it is very bitter, particularly in the finish. The aroma was hoppy and malty.There was lace. Body is on the light side and though lots of hops, it is akin to a more hoppy pilsner taste.

1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
"Dockside Doppelbock:" Underattenuated and sweet with plenty of butterscotch and some tart fruit in the nose. Clear copper coloured body topped by a low, white, fully diminishing head. Buttered apples and husky grain flavours dominate. Butterscotch is lasting. Slick texture to the light, watery body with low carbonation. Unpleasant. Sampled at the Dix Winter Beer Festival 2006/2007.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2005 2005: Light amber colour. Aroma of acetaldehyde, rhubarb and japanese plum wine. Thin, fruity. No malt character. Not really any beer character of any sort, just sweet bizarre fruity overtones and a bit of alcohol. Is this pruno?
2004: Cloudy reddish-brown. Aroma of lime, caramel, mango and a hint of diacetyl. Candyish body, slight banana notes and caramel. Very sweet finish. Ar 7 Ap 3 F 6 P 3 O12 = 3.1

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2005 2005. Golden beer with a thick creamy white head. Very clear. Sweet honeyish aroma, fusely, vegetal aroma behind that. Not a lot of maltiness at all. Flavour is sweet, brackish, and underattenuated. Strange floral/candy flavour. Tastes and feels much lighter that 7.8% and I suspect with the underattenuated flavour that it is seriously overestimating the ABV. Another shitty beer from a brewery that has more than enough of ’em.
2004. Nut brown colour, thin white head. Served too cold. Beer has a citrusy, cola like aroma. A touch of cherry fruit and fusel alcohols. In the mouth is too watery. As it warms some nuttiness and fruit come forward. Clean spicy finish. Not bad, but needs more sweetness and body.
