COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Copper in color, this rich, malty lager is assertively hopped with German Tettnanger hops, producing a complex lager beer, a classic example of this style.

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.

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.

Appearance: Slightly hazy orange/gold with a decent off white head. Aroma: Sweet malt, fruity. Flavor: Malt, alcohol, somewhat harsh finish. Palate: Medium to full bodied, mild to moderate carbonation. Overall: great aroma, with some nice malt characteristics, but uneven.

brokensail (9944) - Orange County, California, USA - NOV 11, 2012
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.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ben4321 (3564) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 27, 2012
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
Overall Impression: 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.

hayduke (3160) - Eureka, California, USA - NOV 5, 2011
This beer pours a clear amber with a white head with yellow highlights. Nice lacing rings as the head recedes. Good retention. Nose of sweet caramel malts and some fruit. Medium in body and with a smooth clean mouthfeel. The flavor is good, with some fruit and malt. Nice clean finish. Very drinkable brew with good balance.

GeorgeV (10) - California, USA - JUL 26, 2011
Pours clear, hazel nut brown, very nutty easy drinking Bock beer. Not boozy at all considering its high alcohol percentage, very light hop character. Over-all, very impressed with this beer.

thetmaxx (729) - West Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 28, 2011
First tasted @ West coast brew fest. I liked it so I got a six pack @ nugget on sale. Pours amber colour, with a thin white head, and thin lacing. Aromas of lagers never impress me. Flavour is nice and hoppy, which is how I love ’em. Palate is full bodied, with a thick, dry, sticky finish. Overall a nice beer (for a lager) that hides its high ABV well.
