Another classic quote from BeerAdvocate:

“I’ve read that Salvator is supposed to be the “original” Doppelbock. If this is the case, why is it such an odd duck within its own style? Aren’t beers of a particular style supposed to follow certain guidelines? Why is it so different?”

The statement is funny, but sad, too. Many clearly think this way about beer. That it must be brewed to a set of guidelines. That the whole of the brewing world operates the same way as American microbreweries. German brewers look at their beers in a very different way.

And why isn’t Salvator a typical Doppelbock? Because Paulaner have pissed around with the recipe, making it paler, sweeter and generally pretty crap. You can read what Salvator used to be like here.
