3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewery in Portland, RBSG. I was pretty sure this was called "Blitzkrieg Bock", which is a more clever play on words than Blitzkrieg Alt, and would seemingly be more in keeping with a bock style at 7.2%. But whatever. Deep golden, approaching amber territory. Sweet pale malts, apple, caramel.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap @ Fat Heads PDX. Clear golden orange pour with white foam. Pretty bland and generic sweet beer. A lot of bread, caramel, and fruity esters. Particularly grape and some baked apple. Maybe a little bit of citrus. Pretty much no hop character at all to speak of, which is fine, I guess. But just too sweet and sugary for me.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Really strong for an Alt, almost harsh alcohol flavor in the finish. complex is maybe an overstatement for this, its not that complex just bigger version of an alt. prefer sticke or #1
