"this beer is still a touch on the boring side, but has a nice balance to it. i recommend it for the price, but not if you can afford better beers. just ok."

Reddish golden appearance. Light and sweet with a thick head. Mild and really cheap.

Honey flavor initially dry after taste. Not very hopsey. Bought it years ago backfill.

Pretty watery bock but a good value for the alcohol. Go to GB and get their doppel on tap but this is a good value if your picking up beer while grocery shopping.

Weak aroma and oddly weak appearance (Gordon Biersch can do better). BUT, it is up hill from there. Quite nice on the palate for style and the lacing grabs it back a 1/2 point on appearance. Odd thin aroma that it removed from the flavor. Aroma just falls apart into bottom rung lager, but the flavor is pretty solid. Hard to rate for style vs. as a beer in my glass, but def. a solid contender. I also prob. paid about a buck for this bottle at Trader Joes, which works for me!
