Appearance: coppery, cloudy, good amount of white head which resolves with fair amount of carbonation

Smell: yeasty, barnyard, metallic with slight floral and undefined esters, musty

Taste: Very light flavor, mildly malted, no hops to speak of, astringent and clean palate secondary to carbonation

Mouthfeel: almost lager like in its texture, good carbonation, good palate cleansing beer

Drinkability: Smells odd but tastes pretty good, easy drinking, akin to a very strong lager - light and quite intoxicating (be careful!)

Sorry, but the aroma and the aftertaste of this brew was not pleasant, so only gets a 3. Maybe it was an old bottle on a "pick 6" . I just might have to try another one before i cast it aside.

A lighter beer than I thought it would be. Still delicious, and very drinkable.

Pours hazy yellow. Smells like a pilsner. Sure as hell stronger than one though. Malty and a tiny touch of fruit maybe. I guess it is pretty good for a doppelbock.
