Very good. I was not impressed with any of the other Redwood beers, but this one stuck out as healthy and fresh and interesting.
This beer pours a dark brownish amber color, considerably lighter than most Doppelbocks. Medium off-white head with good staying power, and decent lacing. The aroma is roasted malt, nuts and hops. Medium-bodied with a robust toasted malt character, along with a good amount of hops and some spices as well. The finish is refreshing and crisp with a nutty aftertaste. Overall this beer doesn’t look like a lot of Doppelbocks but it does a good job just the same. hennes (934) - Fountain, Michigan, USA - JUN 30, 2003
Well, the sign on the wall claimed this as a dopple, though it is maibock light in color. It does have some smoky and spicy tones once you get it going, so it dopples a bit as it warms, with a generous, quick drying heat of hops. Interesting brown sugar note in the close. Definitely one of the most engaging and fun brews to try at this brewery.
