3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The palest and mildest tasting doppelbock
I’ve ever seen and tasted- even at 7.4% by vol.
Golden colored like a pilsner and even a typical
lagerish aroma. However, a strong malt presence and alcoholic
strength separates it from regular lagers.
Not a bad beer, but it doesn’t compare to doppelbocks
like Celebrator and Salvator.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Vintage 1995 (best before) - 7.0%. Pours a brownish golden colour with a diminishing head. Aroma is oxydised. Sweet Madeira and notes of honey. Flavour is sweet with honey notes. Oxydised. Madeira again. Grassy notes as well. Finish is the same, but also has notes of alcohol. Overall an interesting try, but would like to try a fresh one. 26-09-09.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bright golden body with visible, hazy yeast, moderate carbonation, and a flat-fading soapy white head. Aroma of sweet honey, sweet pale wort, maple and apple notes, plus a touch of alcohol and a nutty, buttery element. Medium sweetness, less so than anticipated, with low bitterness and some gentle alcoholic warmth. Texture is like warm, watery syrup. Not my thing.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma is sickly sweet honeyish malt. Color is gold/yellow with a rapidily diminishing head. Flat and honey sweet. I don’t know if this is gone bad or if it’s as intended. It doesn’t taste infected, but it doesn’t taste like much else either except for the honey tinged maltiness.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
No head to speak of. Faintly bitter, some citrus. Overall very weak, almost stale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy amber with a small off white head.
Sweet malt aroma. Sweet flavor of malt,
dark fruit and caramel. Much maltier than
expected given the relatively light color
of this doppelbock.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very cool, black bottle. Contents are just right. This is a great lager, double bock. It’s appearance is a moderate golden color, providing a good fluffy head. Flavor was very nice, almost like honey or syrup was present. Taste complex. There was no ascorbic bite, so that’s nice.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This poured the color of apple juice. The flavor was a little hoppier than I expected and the body was somewhat light. A different approach to the style that is worth a try.
