[bottle] Pours a very clear, golden yellow color. Strong yeast aroma, with some interesting sulfur character present (I seem to be noticing this a lot with the Andechs beers). Flavors are surprisingly clean and malty. Smooth. Finishes with a great noble hop bitterness.

Draft at Bittercreek... Surprised to see this one... Very clear light golden with a short lived white head... Grainy pils malt and light spicy hoppiness are the key descriptors here... A little sweetness to take this out of the German Pils area and not nearly as hoppy or bitter... Nearly perfect for the style... Very happy I stopped in at BC tonight.

Blind taste. Clear yellow pour with fine bubble white head. Sweet lemon syrup aroma. Taste is fresh hay and dry grassy hop and malt. Not bad with food, alone it's a bit one dimensional. .

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: bright, clear straw yellow, with a big, electric white head that shrinks to a frothy cap, leaving excellent lace. Aroma: slightly floral, with a bit of honey and grass. Taste: toasted white bread, decent floral honey, cereal, and hay notes, with a hint of peppercorn. Finish: slightly tangy, with a hint of mustard grains and toast. Notes: Superlative dortmunder. Great palate, easy to drink, and flavorful. Sometimes getting back to a traditional, well-crafted German lager is just what the doctor ordered. Bottle from Roots Market in Olney, Maryland.
