Bright gold appearance with a small, off white head. Fruity, sweet malt, biscuit-like aroma. Taste is sweet malt, gently hopped, with hints of lemon, honey and toffee. Nicely carbonated, medium bodied mouthfeel. Sweet, long lasting finish. The allusion to a ’doppelbock’ in the commercial deScription seems a bit of a stretch.

a very bad beer IMO. some carmel, some lemon zest, apple, and a hint of spice. the spice gave it a weird funk that didn’t mesh with the rest of the brew though... i don’t know it was rough going down.

(Bottled on 1/17/2007) Fresh tasting spritzy lager with a nice and spicy hop character. Very Dormunderish in flavor profile. Nice and dry, which make for good drinkability. Good dose of Pils malt. Nice surprise here.

(12oz bottle, bottled 3rd week of January) Naturally I’m drinking this one on Mardi Gras. Medium off-white head atop crystal clear apple juice body. Aroma is moderately sweet, caramel, some cookie, light floral, lemon. Taste is moderately sweet, caramel, some herbal, light lemon. Alcohol readily apparent. Watery medium body with some stickiness.

eaglefan538 (2966) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - FEB 14, 2007
Pours a pretty golden color wtih a bright white head (full finger thick) that has solid retention and leaves behind very good lacing. The aroma was grassy and bready with some honey, very pilsner-like. The flavor followed suit, strong sweet and thick bready, doughy, pilsner-like, imperial pilsner-like, finishing with a strong bitter and grassy hop touch. Imperial pilsner, blonde bock, whatever you want to call it, but definitely hoppier than your average bock. A little too cloying by the end of the glass, despite the strong hop presence.

UPDATED: APR 18, 2010 The aroma actually smells like it has some roux. There is also malted corn, and herbal hops but I get the feeling there is actually a lot of adjuncts in here. The appearance is deep golden with a small sized head. The flavor does have a little bit of those adjuncts but it is mostly corn, bread dough, and astringent hops. The palate is smooth but thin. I don’t know what to think of this beer. It is definitely different but more weird than anything else.

Pours a bright straw color with an acceptable white head. Clean grassy earthy aroma. Surprisingly sweet. Has a boiled corn taste along with pale malt sweetness, some maple syrup, and mild hoppiness. Kind of like a very pleasant non-astringent malt liquor (if such a thing exists). Not bad, I just don’t know what it is.

Bottle poured into a stein. Aroma is like sweet sugar candy. Flavor is flat tasting and slightly sweet. Not really a dopplebock like their website claims. In fact its rather dull and hopless. Even lacks in malt. Aroma is interesting. Basically this is an interesting failure that should’ve had the kinks worked out.
