Andygator, a creature of the swamp, is a unique high-gravity brew made with pale malt, German lager yeast, and German Perle hops. Unlike other high-gravity brews, Andygator is fermented to a dry finish with a slightly sweet flavor and subtle fruit aroma. Reaching an alcohol strength of 8% by volume, it is a Helles Dopplebock.

650ml bottle. Pale gold colour, decent slightly off-white head which reduced to a ring, traces of lacing. Very gentle aroma, honeydew? Lightly sweet taste. Medium-full body. Smooth, slick texture. Fizzy carbonation and a little alcohol warmth. Not as assertive as your typical Doppelbock but decent enough in its own right. 6.

Good stuff. Sweet malty profile, without being cloying, heavy, or otherwise unapproachable. A very nice pale version of a doppelbock. A slightly crisp finish in taste, but a medium-heavy body that is fulfilling and rich. not much on the smell, but i never get much nose on lagers anyway. Alcohol completely hidden, and the 25 IBUs balance it nicely. I may want to brew something like this!
