Comments: Note to American commercial breweries: this is what lager is supposed to taste like! This is a golden beer with a lot of bubbles and a thick head (although the latter disipates rather quickly). It’s a well-balanced taste with a doughy flavor and a hint of apples. It’s a nice smooth beer I could drink a lot of if I could afford it.

Comments: This doppelbock beer has a caramel brown color, a thick head, and lots of carbonation. In other words it looks sort of like a glass of Coke. But the taste, … ah, there’s a world of difference. It is a sweet beer with a burnt sugar or molasses strap cookie flavor with a nice warm aftertaste. Has a sticky mouthfeel, but not unpleasant. All told, this is a gooooood beer!
