3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Dark brown color with small head; red hue. The aroma is mild, lightly fruity (apple). The mouthfeel is lean and smooth; some caramel flavor, malt, dash of chocolate, with light oxidation feeling; light residual sweetness; ordinary bitterness, with some roasted nuts in the end. Short final.
Weak Doppelbock; quite common American interpretation (although examples exist in Germany as well); not exciting, no class.

Tap. Red black with medium off white head. Not too sweet like some doppelbocks. Pleasant edge. Nicely bodied. Occidental is an upcoming brewery. Worth drinking if you encounter them
