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.
