COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For the 8th beer in our Stag Series, weíve teamed up with Gold Ochsen Brauerei in New Ulmís sister city, Ulm Germany. Both cities are also host to fifth generation family-owned breweries and both breweries were founded by men named August. Working in collaboration, we decided to brew a Blonde Doppel Bock. Both breweries uses specialty malts from Weyerman with each brewery using their own base Pilsner malt Ė Rahr for Schellís and Schwabenmalz for Gold Ochsen. Both breweries use Emerald, Tattnanger and Saphir hops during the boil and then each brewery uses a different newer German hop variety in the whirlpool and as a dry hop. Schellís uses Polaris hops and Gold Ochsen uses Mandarina Bavaria. Both beer are then fermented with the respective brewriesí house lager yeast and matured for a couple of months before packaging.

Bottle. Clear amber pour with a spotty white head. Big caramel malt with a touch of pine to balance. Syrupy palate. Pretty solid.

JK (4520) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - APR 9, 2014
A light colored doppelbock. Well hopped for the style. Typical of the lighter bocks, the alcohol is perceivable and the malt flavors are much drier than in the darker versions. Good beer.

badgerben (4478) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - DEC 19, 2013
Copper color with a large head that quickly falls. Musty hop aroma. Bready and buttery malt flavor. Unexpectedly bitter with a noticeably vegetal hop character.

McTapps (4300) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - DEC 23, 2013
Pours out of the bottle in a clear amber colour with low head and medium body. Nice aroma of hops and flowers. Taste of mild hops, straw, vanilla, flowers, citrus and herbs. Dry finish. Nice and surprisingly different (lighter, fresher as usual) Bock.

MichaelAwesome (4300) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle shared with McTapps. Quite a bit above average Bock which turns out to be drinkable and solid. Slightly hoppy with decent malt in the back. Not a bad one.

wlajwl (3921) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - FEB 15, 2014
Aroma is pale malts, very light fruit and slightly perfumed/beery. The flavor is pale malts, fruit/berries and a tangy/mildly beery finish.

CanIHave4Beers (3321) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - DEC 3, 2013
Pours a very deep golden color with a thick white head and nice lacing on the glass.

The aroma has a good leaf rot character, itís got some herbal happiness, and a mild sweetness. Itís defiantly got some alcohol character, but itís not brash or uninviting.

The flavor is really very nice, itís not as sweet tasting as the aroma lets on but is certainly malt forward with a nice apple skin character and a good dosing of herbal and leafy happiness. Itís got a little bit of toastiness and a light but warming alcohol presence. Nothing is overbearing, everything seems right in itís respective place.

Most defiantly right up my alley as far as lighter colored doppelbocks are concerned, not that thatís a style I have a lot of exposure to/experience with.

Bocks are usually sweet and dark so Iím not sure whatís going on here as this is relatively hoppy for the style. Kind of neat.

Trev (1945) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 29, 2013
Dark gold almost amber bock with a thin white head. Aroma is grassy and fruity hop over biscuit and caramel malt. Nice medium malt body, grassy/herbal euro hop. Light fruit finish with a hint of alc. I like it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wouldnít call this a bock... but whatever. Aromas of pine and hops.. With a touch of malty sweetness. Similar flavors. Decent.
