2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
The best known Dortmunder and the big competitor of Dortmunder Union Export which is also advertised as "the Original Dortmunder". Tasted from a can. Thick, moussy, lightly yellowish white, quite stable head, colour pale golden blonde, cristal clear. Light sweetish maltiness, some honey and wet straw in the nose, perhaps a faint hint of peppery hops. Smooth malty taste with thin mouthfeel, bit honeyish, dryer in the finish with a hint of herbal hops there. Surely not the best Dortmunder, more like a bland mass-produced pale lager, but certainly not the worst pale lager I’ve had.

Nice, hoppy aroma but avarage taste. It has a too pale color for me. Watery texture. Nothing special.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
16.9 oz bottle poured into a shaker. The aroma is unbaked bread dough with a light spice, a light banana, and a slight skunkiness. It’s a clear pale straw color with a bit rocky, bumpy white head. This eventually reduced down to a light ring with a couple of wispy spots on the surface. A light lace is left along the glass. The taste is a decent, but underwhelming balance of medium light sweet and bitter. It does have a light, creamy and fuzzy (at the same time?) carbonation with a texture that’s on the creamy side of thin. The medium-light body finishes with a dry, crisp grain and light butter caramel flavor with a touch of resin. The resin sticks around in the light aftertaste with a distinct buttered whole grain toast flavor.

Standard procedure here, with another big German import. Taste of bread,hay and little grass. All very light though thanks to the watery mouth feel. Inoffensive and very forgettable.

Wow this is one of the worst imports I have ever tasted. Germany should be ashamed of this brand! The flavor is skunky and the pour is a flat amber. Horrible skunky aftertaste.

Pours pale straw yellow with no head. Minimal aroma of grain. Citrus with grain flavor. Refreshing for a hot summer day. Meh.
