Review from notes. Very much looking forward to trying a Doppelbock from Great Lakes Brewing. Pours a dark amber color with zero head into Great Lakes pint glass. Smells of malt and sweet bread and a bit of fruit that I can't quite place. A nice little bite on the lips in the front end that gives way to a nice rich malty mouthfeel that finishes clean. A nice example of the style and there's a decent bit of carbonation that mixes with the malt to keep it from being too rich, thick or alcohol heavy. Another solid offering from Great Lakes.

Best by 6/1/11 and tasted on 3/12/11

Aroma - Delicious malt lagerness. Deep malts not roasty just sweet.

Appearance - Dark golden amber light tan head that quickly dissipated leaving just a collar.

Taste - Malty goodness smooth not a lot of detectable hop flavor.

Notes - Despite the good words I put into the taste section of my notes I gave this beer and overall B and I didn't write a lot of words in the review so I guess this was just an OK Doppelbock.
