Very clear, mildly effervescent sunshine yellow (I thought Dopplebocks were supposed to be dark). VERY sticky and abundant white head.
Smells earthy, grassy, bready-malty, with a touch of clove.
As first it tastes very spicey. Cloves and coriander run amok. As it warms, however, it becomes kind of anonymously malty-sweet, and a strong, unpleasant stale wheat flavor grows in prominence. I also detect some celery notes. A mild caramel flavor announces itself after significant warming.
The body is way too light for the style. As far as drinkability, I didn't have much desire to finish my glass. I'm no expert on German lagers, but based simply on the BA style description of Dopplebocks... well, this isn't one. And it's really not a great beer either. It's not like it's disgusting, but not I would not drink it again.

Served in a big, frosty litre mug at my local watering hole - The Baltic... my kinda beer, not too hoppy, sweet but not too sweet and enough but not too much aroma to keel you over the next day. ... a huge kick, too.... yummy....If you're in the East Bay and wanna good beer at a reasonable price.... Try The Baltic for happy hour...
