2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye.
Pour looks just like a pale lager. Very fizzy bubbles, apple in the nose and taste has a lager-like crispness and bite. The finish is quite clean and enjoyable for a summer style.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2016 New, mature rate: I can’t even argue if you think this beer bland. It depends on whether you want bitterness ot color to appreciate a beer. In good shape this beer is a showcase of fresh, sweet, palest malt, like refined honeyed nectar. It is stronger than it needs to be. But it’s the mashed potatoes, the buttered corn, the chowder, the un-spicy but expertly prepared comfort food of the beer world.
Old immature rate:
Not a bad quaffer at all, but not really interesting either. Bottle pours a pale yellow with a decent white froth. Lemony and slightly skunky nose. Tastes somewhat sweet, slightly corny, lightly bitter with a refreshing lemony bit that barely saves it.

0,5lt Bottle from Beer Factory Athens. Golden color with a medium fast disappearing white head. Malty aromas and flavors with a fair (for a dortmunder) amount of bittering hops. Quite nice and refreshing.

Bottle. Appears gold with a tall, lasting head. Aroma is bready with soda cracker and sugar. Flavor starts and ends with a simple, slightly grassy, clean flavor. Easy and boring drinking. I think the bottle label has been changed for the U.S.
