2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2003 The beer of choice at the local Oktoberfest. Of course, its the only beer available on tap. Serves a purpose. I chose to drink Erdiner Hefeweizen instead after only 1.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A well made but unremarkable beer. White tight head with abit of lacing. Light gold colour and a thin body. A hoppy nose with hints of citrus. Reasonable bitterness and a clean finish. OK

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 2/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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

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?

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.

3.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bready malt aroma. I was expecting skunk, but got none. Your average better-than-Bud German macro. Tangy hops in the finish.
