[Reviewed 06-10-11 - from notes]

A - Gorgeous brunette, this clear beer pours with a dense tan head with decent retention but little lace.

S - The amped-up aroma is pumpin' with well-tuned caramel and toast malt notes with balanced earthy hop aromas singing back-ups.

T - Heavily malty but well-balanced, this brew is certainly in tune. The caramel and toast malt base groove resonates throughout while earthy hop riffs chug over the top.

M - High notes of carbonation explode on the tongue while the medium-full body lasts throughout the performance. A dry hoppy bitter encore finishes out.

O - Rockin' but a little too hoppy for my taste concerning doppelbocks. Warm, lingering alcohol booze isn't infectious but nicely done for a good spring beer.
