look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Pours a crystal clear amber color with a thick frothy head that slowly dissipates leaving heavy lacing on the glass. Not much for suspended bubbles. The smell is of faint malt and a bit of bread yeast. Sweet taste, caramel with slightly bitter alcohol ridden finish. Buttery.... Mouthfeel is nice and full and the drinkability is not too bad, I could put down three or four 12oz's pretty easy.
Good stuff..

Served in a Gale Sayers shaker pint glass.

So, do gentlemen prefer this kind of doppelbock? Regardless, this stuff pours a clear golden-brass topped by a finger of white foam. The nose comprises sweet biscuit, honey, a hint of vanilla, sweet flowers, and a twang of candied orange peel. The taste brings in more of the same, along with a pinch of clove, a hint of sweet corn, and an extra tad of breadiness. There's a definite sense of booze in there, but it doesn't have all that much effect. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a mostly smooth feel. Overall, a solid doppelbock, as per usual when Capital is involved, though I'm not sue the blonde-ness was all that effective in the final execution. I mean, I like this beer, but their other d-bocks just hold up a bit better in my eyes.
