Karl Strauss Conquistador Doppelbock
Another beer I ordered while at the Karl Strauss Brewing restaurant in La Jolla, CA was the Conquistador Doppelbock. The beer pours a red amber color with a thin filmy white head. The aroma consists of cherry, wheat, and sweet malts. The taste is malty and smooth, actually it is very malty, with a cherry accent. It has a lightly dry dry finish with lots bubbles on the tongue. The alcohol content is 8.0% ABV. Overall, the Conquistador was a pretty decent beer. The cherry accent is what really drew me into liking it so much, and the carbonation kept it light on the tongue.
