12oz bottle 6/22/14 (Judicious Spirits Singles)-48° in Mug-Pours a medium golden with a small white head. Aroma of malt, grains, and hops. Taste of the same with more malt. This medium bodied brew is not bad but just not my favorite style.

Enjoyed at Total Wine’s summer beer tasting class. Nice mild malt aroma. Nice flavor. Mildly effervescent mouth feel. Full body, creamy texture. Good after-taste. One of the better ones in this style.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Decent recreation of the style. Loud enough without being weak, but weak enough that it’s not as full as it could be.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sun Devil Liquor bottle. Pours a nice golden color with active carbonation but just a thin white head. Sweet aroma of malt and corn with a hint of alcohol. Flavor is strange, it starts sweet and then ends almost tart/sour. Not really a style I’m familiar with but this seemed a little strange.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Rich, malty aromas from a crystal clear light copper body with a fleeting white head. Caramel and light butterscotch jump out with raisins and plums following. That distinctive German lager taste and creaminess comes through along with a dry, leafy bitterness and a good alcohol bite. It all wraps up into a delicious, sweet, herbaceous and warming finish. I think even the Germans would agree this is an excellent Maibock.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear bright orange pour with a white head. Sweet caramel malt, some candy/sugar, lemon peel, and a bit of yeast. A nice fruity ester aroma, some bread, and a bit of yeast. There’s a lot of apple, lemon peel, and sugar sweetness on the palate. A bit of bread, some yeast, and toasted malt. A bit too sweet for my tastes.

12-oz long neck bottle.
Pours a nice golden-amber color with a moderate head.
Pleasant aromas of malts and hops with an additional perfumy scents.
Sweetness comes first on the palate, immediately balanced by a bitter finish. slightly creamy and overall satisfying. True to type.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
I love this beer and can never have enough of it. While I have yet to try Sudwerk's Doppelboch, this one rates as my favorite right now. A nice gold appearance and a wonderful mouth feel, my only complaint is the dry mouth after a enjoying the swallow of this fine beer. If you are lucky enough to find this in your beer aisle, don't pass it by.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Colonial Wine and Spirits, 3/27/12
Aroma: A rather sweet nose, malts, some apple, bread, and some sort candied sugary sweetness
Appearance: It pours a mostly clear golden color with a small white head and some spotty lacing
Flavor: Taste is heavy sweet, the components are the same as the nose, with a grain/bread finish
Palate: The body is medium, it has a slightly cloying, smooth feel, and just a hint of heat on the finish
I didn’t love this one. They were a little heavy handed with the sweetness for my taste, and there was something fake sugary about the feel that also took away from it for me. Overall, this wasn’t terrible, but it certainly wasn’t for me.
