2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear yellow urine color. Minimal head and lace. Aroma of malt, hop, wheat, lemons, pine, spices (pepper). Flavor is the same. Robust malt flavors are giving me a headache but only slightly. I think when this happens I have to chalk it up to raw yeast/malt. It happens with a Yuengling, too. Light body quick duration.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance was a clear golden colored body with small slowly rising bubbles. A small white head leaving a film on top of the beer appeared and left some light mild lacing.
The smell was malty with some really light citrus.
The taste was malts and light citrus and added a slight corn taste that ended up tasting pretty good.
The palate was light and left a sweet yet wet aftertaste and finish.
Overall, this was a good dortmunder that I would come back to. I’m glad I picked up a variety pack with this in it.
