A: Clear golden yellow color with nice white head and minimal lacing. Not what I would expect.
S: Very sweet smell. It almost smelled spoiled at first, but it is a honey sweet smell that is quite odd. Some fruitiness and no hop aromas.
T&M: Nice clean, crisp taste. Mild fruitiness with heavy malt flavors. Hint of caramel and citrus hops make this a great tasting beer. It is a smooth, full-bodied beer that is quite heavy for it's clarity.
This stuff is spot on for the style with the exception of color. Slow drinking but very good. I am usually skeptical of Abita brews, but I'd highly recommend this as it is high quality and tasty.
Serving type: on-tap

A very nice helles dopplebock from Abita. Pours a thick yellow straw color with a huge rocky head of white, dying down to a thin foam layer with excellent clinging lacing. Smells of fresh apples, pears, and sweet light malts. Excellent mouthfeel, well carbonated, with light caramel and slight bittering hops on the back. Not a lot of dimension, but not bad at all. I would compare it to a lot of the Russian beers, yet smoother and not as abrasive to the novice beer drinker. Also would love to have it side by side to the hop gator which I have had and liked a bit more. This beer at one time to my recollection was a "barley wine" by name sold in small Little Kings sized bottles (a bottle style many I know referred to as stop sign smashers). Still, a very nice beer indeed.
