A basic lager, lots of biscuit and yeast flavors. Sweet. Light. Not too complicated.

books_n_brews (148) - Baltimore-ish, Maryland, USA - AUG 6, 2016
Pours on tap clear caramel color light white head. No clear aroma. Medium hop profile. A bit sweet but not bad. Not quite as smooth as finish as advertised.

Ernest (7318) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 6, 2016
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium to dark yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (grain, cereal), lightly hoppy (herbs), with notes of concrete, egg white, DMS, metal. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Dirty and sloppy. A dumper.

Patrickctenchi (6024) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAY 16, 2016
Bottle: Clear gold with a short, off-white head. Grain malt, honey scent. Taste is sweet, barley malt, creamy grains. On the sweet side, but a pretty decent offering.

This is a good beer. It’s kind of sweet for a lager, but it doesn’t insult you with its odd approach to a lager. It’s good! One thing I noticed is that it didn’t keep particularly well, but I found that to be the case with the other beer I bought from ABC as well. It may be their packaging that doesn’t last.

Dacrza (852) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - NOV 15, 2015
DATE TASTED: November 15, 2015 ... GLASSWARE: pilsner... OCCASION: finishing off a football Sunday... APPEARANCE: clear, golden body that has a steady, sparse display of bubbles; the head clumps in marshy pools of off-white fuzz, with a solid ring solidifying the outside of the glass... AROMA: fresh dough intermingles with aromatic flowery fragrances; some uneven yeastiness keeps the aroma from complete allure.... PALATE: light, nearly flat body that allows for maximum sipping; little carbonation; watery, forgettable aftertaste... TASTE:slight buttery flavor with some maltiness to suggest a biscuit; some of that flowery, hoppy lightness attempts to balance the experience... OVERALL: a solid Dortmunder that offers a bit of nuance but also resides in the style’s parameters...

Poured from the tap into a pint glass at the brewery in Gettysburg, PA. This beer has a clear golden color with a small white head. the aroma is big on grass and malt with heavy carbonation. The flavor matches the aroma with grass, malt and some malt to finish the mix. Not a bad beer, good with quesadillas or nachos.

wxman (1744) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2015
On tap at the source. Pours a clear pale yellow with a really nice albeit small white head that coats the glass and lasts. Aroma is soft notes of bread and grass. Taste is sweet pale malt, mild grassiness, bread dough and hops. this is quite true to the Dortmunder style, which is not hoppy, but mildly malty. I think it’s been under-rated here by those who rate by their own taste in beers than judging by style.

ryanscourt (1362) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 7, 2015
Less than average lager. Too sweet. Watery with strong blonde malt flavor. Similar body profile to the wheat.
