hopscotch (10130) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 27, 2003
Unremarkable beer in every way. Nice, large, fizzy, white head which lasts and lasts, but that's totally ancillary. Smells and tastes lightstruck! Totally ruins the nicely bitter hop addition and any hint of citrus in the nose. If you're in Dortmund, drink one at the brewery or freshly bottled. Otherwise, don't take a chance with this green-bottled horror.

Sully (1377) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - AUG 19, 2003
A clean tasting German beer with a good flavour. The pour is of a typical helles, light amber with a creamy white head. The beer itself is hopped well and the maltiness comes through. It is not exceptional but it ain't that bad either

bluevegie (3067) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 17, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2005 Good colour and nice fluffy lasting head, you can taste the malt at the start and then the hops comes through also with a little bit of lemon. Feels like something is missing though?

Suttree (5591) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 10, 2003
Bright Yellow and Sizey white head. Failed to make much of an impression after that. It was clean and crisp, and it did not have any "off" flavors, but not much else. Citrusy hop finish.

MaBeer1972 (1471) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 26, 2003
Excellent in the Summertime or with a meal. A bit lighter and more refreshing than a Pilsner with less sticky aftertaste. The Dortmunder is getting to be among my favorite styles of beer.

Aurelius (4677) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 25, 2003
Bready malt aroma. I was expecting skunk, but got none. Your average better-than-Bud German macro. Tangy hops in the finish.

mixamatt (427) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 24, 2003
Sweet mild hop bread aroma.Medium golden appearance.Rich malty flavor followed by a crisp slightly salty finish.

NectarFarm (128) - Calgary, CANADA - JUL 11, 2003
A DAB didn't do me. Usual bland off balanced pile of swill. I'd drink it again if an angry German had a shotgun to my head.

So I bought a mini-keg of this for WI's greatest holiday - Summerfest! A holiday built on beer and live music...what more could you want? The reason I picked this up, when the women were coming over, I wanted to be able to say, "a little Dab will do ya".
