Clear golden with medium body, little carbonation and very short lived head. Aroma is malty alcohol, taste is corn and malt. Hard to detect much sign of hops. Lithuanian Colt 45?

See through golden yellow color with orange tint. Aroma is grains and sweet malts (apples?). Lightly oily mouth feel. Taste of creamed corn and bread. Not enjoyable

16.9oz bottle, of course advertised with the alcohol as the main selling point. Nose of meaty spaghetti sauce, and not in the good way I sometimes got from hops in Franconia. Pours clear golden with hints of orange (of course that’s Doppelbock!) and a large, frothy bright white head. Taste is very sweet but not cloying to start, cirsp with dirty graininess and old hops. The sugariness isn’t actually too bad here, and there’s a ’Euro Pils’ character here that was missing from the last I had from these guys (a strong/imperial golden lager) despite the promise of a maltier dark beer (neither of those terms applies). Does dry toward the end, no bitterness to speak of, but a very mild astringency. Very faint apple and butter. Light body a little rough with the alcohol, but generally works well as a no-thought alcohol transference mechanism. I don’t have too many problems here, and am not outright offended.

Clear deep yellow gold color, small head that did not last long nor did it leave any traceable lacing. Sweet grain, light apple aroma. Sugary Sweet, corn, apple, light alcohol burn. Considering high ABV, this is rather smooth and easy to drink. After saying that, it is not something that I would normally drink. Funny label. OK for what it is. Pass it...

Wow. Brutal. Pours gold with a white head. Gross fusel alcohol and weird malty sweetness. Pretty bad.

Finhead (1632) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - JAN 10, 2014
Clear, pale gold pour with a white head (not like a true doppelbock). The aroma is just corn and basements. It has a medium body with oily texture and lively carbonation. The taste is sweet with some harsh alcohol burn toward the finish.

Drake (11937) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 1, 2014
16.9 ounce bottle from Beer Run, 12/14/13. Pours a clear golden color with a medium sized foamy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of heavy corn, pale malts and some dusty notes. The taste is heavy corn, pale malts, doughy notes, the mildest bit of hops. Thin bodied, boozy. Malt liquor, basically.

Wow. Dreadful beer. Sugary and brutal. but does have some Bock undertones. Artificially sweet orange sugar, faint yeasty butter. Horrid stuff.

This is one of the worst beers I’ve ever had. Tastes like pure alcohol, rubbing alcohol. It got one extra point for high alcohol content.
