Doppelbock

500 mL screw-top single from Tower, Piedmont, Atlanta, GA, USA. I think it was $3.69.
Amber color that lacks depth. Some impressive head, but this leaves very little lace ultimately. It’s more froth than anything else. Some alcohol in the nose, but I don’t pick up much else. Some sugary sweetness too.
Strange metallic bitterness accompanies the expected Bock characteristics. The bitter twang lingers on through the finish. Mouthfeel lacks the creamy luxury that you might expect from the style, and it all feels a little aftershave like! Solvent like quality in the aftertaste too, a bit rough.
I’ve noticed a few new offerings in this range and I went for this as I thought it would be the safest bet; IF it is the best they can offer, then there’s not much point in trying very much else – we’ll see.
