Capital Blonde Doppelbock

Capital Brewery

USA

What I like about Capital is that they make sure you have every end of the German lager spectrum year round. This is a lot like a Maibock (but not to be confused with Capital's actual Maibock). Rich and malty, no discernible hop flavor, just something good to shake the stink of Winter off of you. Lighter in color then a standard Doppelbock, but quite hearty in body. Take my advice, if you are weary of the standard BMC lagers, and don't like the green-bottled imports, head to Wisconsin and seek out Capital. You get the real thing, year round. I'll have to see if my mother-in-law can send this to me every year.
