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.

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!

This was a doppelbock? It looked and tasted like a belgian golden, maybe. Some grape and raisin flavors. Poured a nice deep orange color. Slight alcohol. On tap at Depeaux, the new spot in the Decatur train station. The setting was better than the beer. A little disappointing and definitely not reminiscient of a doppelbock to me.

It's an interesting brew which may not be traditional to style but is a good beer none the less

Lite head dissapates in seconds no lacing of note / crisp nondescript nose / great low hops taste crisp and clean / not like traditional doppelbock but what the heck this is a good beer / would recommend to anyone would wants a safe 8.0 - pair with BBQ & get a ride home
