UPDATED: MAR 8, 2008 I had read reviews of this beer and it prevented me from buying it....I gave in..I honestly think some of these people are lying...First off, I taste NO CORN, I do not think any was used.....It is not "Golden" either.....Im not a huge fan of this brewery, just to note......I think some on here are trying to compare it to the original lager or just snobes against Budweiser, we need to be open minded on here.....Now, for rating it as a doppelbock, this is actually pretty good....Pours a nice dark amber color with very nice off-white head that has decient retention....Im drinking it now.....has laced the glass....Aroma of sweet malt with a light dark roast aroma as well....Flavor is sweet and malty, and ofcoarse, some dark roast....this beer is nicely carbonated as well, has some body to it.......This is a good beer, and the best I have tried from Budweiser......this should be the beer we buy off the shelves on a regular basis....but they would lose money due to the majority of the world prefering beer with no flavor.....so sad......also, as a note, why is the color of the beer in the picture golden when this is a dark amber????? lancenelson (26) - Nebraska, USA - JUL 6, 2008
Nice malty flavor. Light on aroma and hoppiness. Good, smooth flavor with no aftertaste. The high alcohol content doesn’t affect the taste. MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - OCT 13, 2008
Mine poured darker than what is pictured. More like a dark lager, which is what it tasted like. It was from 2007. I recommend.
46.5 Oz bottle. 2005 vintage kept in my refrigerator all these years. I was afraid to drink it. I went into this with an open mind. This beer poured a slightly cloudy yellow with a full yellowish,white head. Big malt aroma with some vanilla notes. Typically bock-like. Flavor was more malt, moderate sweetness and slight alcohol. I like it and I think it fits in with other German made bocks and doppelbocks pretty well. Good. jeffwilliams11 (310) - hooterville, Michigan, USA - NOV 29, 2008
i really liked this beer. pours med amber color with nice head that sticks around fairly well. flavor is slightly hoppy, spicy, lots of caramel malts. alcohol is noticable, but not overpowering. Ungstrup (38595) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 8, 2009
Bottled. An amber-orange beer with a tan head. The aroma is sweet with nots of caramel, nuts, and alcohol. The flavor is very sweet with strong notes of caramel, leading to a dry alcoholic finish. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

2007 vintage 750mLish at Ale Atlanta. Awesome. I’ve been wanting to try this for a while, but I didn’t want to spend any money on it. Amber color. Malty aroma. Hint of alcohol. Lightly sweet. Not as bad as everyone makes it out to be. Should be rated blind to be fair. Decent. jimmack34 (647) - Lancaster, Ohio, USA - MAR 16, 2009
I paid almost $22 for this 1qt 14.5 fl oz bottle at a liquor store Roseville, MI. Pours hazy tan-yellow with a very nice soft fluffy head. Smells of caramel, molasses, and corn syrup. Tastes of caramel, honey, molasses, and some grassy hops. Very nice creamy, sticky mouthfeel, and nicely carbonated. A slow warming alcohol. Very rich bock flavor. Tastes very German. Was this beer worth the price I paid?...not really. Is it worth trying?...Absolutely. BREWMUSKCLES (2748) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 1, 2010
caramel tastes with plum, fig and prune in this farmfresh malt brew. 2007 year the beer is basically brown and is refreshing with little sense of alcohol. nice appropriate sweetness this beer as one might expect is not overdone yet the total package is complex enough to intrigue. a totally interesting and tasteful doppel i am mildly surprised. thank you Vincent. thirdeye11 (6162) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 9, 2011
(12oz bottle) clear deep copper, ring of white bubbles. Nose of light metal, rich caramel and dark fruits. Taste is toasty, grain, caramel, light oxidation, soft carbonation, a bit of an old linger but actually good overall! Leighton (22555) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2015
Bottle shared during the RBWG 2015 Grand Tasting. Vintage 2007 - what a treat. Pours clear amber with a light, tan cream head. Nicely oxidised in the aroma, with present caramel and bread. Medium sweet flavor with sugary bread, caramel, aged fruits, figs, dates. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sugary, syrupy finish with more oxidation, toasted grainy bread, leathery fruits, dates, berries. Pretty solid on the whole.
