Oh! A new beer at my favorite burger place who's draught selection includes *three* varieties of macro light beers, Sam Adams, Leinie's Honey Weiss, and Summit (they don't tell you it's the Extra Pale unless you ask). They substituted the doppelbock for the usual Leinie's Red. I'll give it a go.

Appearance is opaque, burnt red color with a decent head that didn't last (could be the glass - this isn't a beer-lover's bar). Aroma was mild, but the beer was served pretty cold. Flavor? Umm, slightly hoppy and negligible malt flavor or sweetness. Smell and flavor did not seem to improve upon warming. Feels like water in the mouth. Not a terrible beer, but a terrible doppelbock.

Serving type: on-tap
