Douberd (4851) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - NOV 28, 2012
Bottle of 300 ml at home. This beer pours a deep golden yellow colour, maybe two tones lighter than of copper.Very thin head, white in colour. Minimal activity in the glass in the form of bubbles. The head disappeared rather quckly. Obvious aroma of malts. The taste is sweet, some citrus in there, with a slight bitter aftertaste. The high alcohol is very nicely hidden. Thick on the body with average carbonation. Overall, quite good.

BlackHaddock (6347) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2012
33cl bottle poured into a ’La Chouffe’ tulip on 25 Oct 2012 @ home. True to the Dort look: clear, bright, clean and golden with a full head of white foam. I thought it went down hill from now on! The nose and taste are fairly sweet with alcohol adding to the strange unbalanced feel the beer gives off. The beer is too sweet and alcoholic for the flavours it has (or more to the point: doesn’t have). Bland and far too sweet for a proper Dortmunder.

#816 Der "Super Dortmunder" ist goldgelb mit feinporigem Schaum, der sich einen Tick zu schnell verabschiedet. In der Nase süßmalzig und leicht alkoholisch. Der Antrunk ist schwer und voll, aber geschmacklich ist dieses Export sehr süß geraten und leider überhaupt nicht hopfig. Der Abgang wird zu sehr vom deutlich zu hohem Alkoholgehalt dominiert. Nein, dieser "Super Dortmunder" ist leider ein viel zu süßer, leicht bockiger Holländer! Dabei sieht das Label der Flasche echt gut aus... Test vom 5.11.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 11,8,8,7,12,8 - 8,35

Tried on tap in the Bonte Koe. Not a particularly good attempt at a Helles, just a poor lager really.

Grzesiek79 (4000) - Radom, POLAND - JUL 25, 2012
Dośc niespotykana mocna zawartość alkocholu w tym stylu. Alkochol dominuje zarówno w smaku jak i zapachu. Od Niemieckich dortmundzkich piw sporo go różni. Orzeźwiające, mało trwała piana choć puszysta podczas nalewania

goozen (3810) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JUL 22, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2012 Tap at Bonte Koe: Clear golden coloured brew with an too sweet taste. First time i see an Alfa beer from tap, i like the Pilsener more.

Bottle in Eindhoven. Pours clear dark yellow with small white head. Aroma is wet malt, fresh wheat flower dough, dusty basement, hints of overripe banana and hints of alcohol. Taste is medium bitter with hints of sweetness. Body is light oily with good carbonation. Finish is short and light bitter with notes of citrus, cookies and hints of licorice.

The taste is alcoholic-sweet, a bit alcoholic-bitter, malty a bit sugary. Not my beer. 7/2/1/2/8/3
