2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma: Sweet grainy aroma from the malt, some noble hops in there providing a floral aroma. Apperance: Excellent clarity, good golden color and head retention. Taste: Nice, slightly sweet malt profile. Medium hop bitterness, but think it could use a little more hops to support the malt. Palate: Mouthfeel was very good and it was filled with a great malt profile. I just wish the hops were a little more balanced with the malt. Overall: Great overall drinking beer, very close to the dortmunder-export style but would like some more noble hops added so the it is better balanced.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light grainy aroma, with a touch of sweetness. Pours a clear light gold with minimal white head. Tastes underattenuated, with a sweetness left behind, and no noticeable hop flavor. A truly mediocre beer.

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.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear golden body, medium to thin white head, spotty lacing. Sweet grains and cereals, fairly fruity in the nose. Light bodied, moderate carbonation, off-putting sweetness, muddled finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
My buddy brought this beer home in a growler that looked like a hobbit’s lantern. Pours crystal clear with a thin layer of head. Tastes crisp and clear, agood lager.
