3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2003 Overall impression was more hoppy than I would've expected from a German style. My bottle poured out with a big head that settled down after a few minutes.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear, light golden body with medium white head. Aroma is medium grassy/straw. Taste is grassy, though it finishes corn-ish. Body is fairly light, but not watery.

Clear straw colr, thin head. Very shy aroma of raw cereals, wet straw flavor. Yucky.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2004 Very pales straw color. Massive carbonation leads to an initially thick and foamy head. Unfortunately, it is entirely diminishing. Mild aroma of hay and grain. Somewhat watery. There's just too little goin on in the flavor department. Some hops in the finish with no malt backbone. Almost completely lacking in character.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can. Pours a golden colour with large frothy head. Little lacing though. Aroma is hops and slightly skuny. Taste is malty with a little spice. Finish is bubbly and bland. Dortmund has much better beers than this "original" example.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(Bottle) Pours a thin and quick dissipating white head. Nice amber body with lively carbonation. Hoppy nose with malt undertones. The initial carbonated and hop taste makes a transition to a citrus, malt flavour mid-palate then finishes somewhat watery. Average.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Golden colour, few bubbly head. typical hoppy aroma. The taste is quite malty and too much bitter in the aftertaste (bad quality hops?). Anyway drinkable, but nothing special...

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tastes like your average American brew. Pale yellow with very little aroma. Light and watery with little taste. It's quite refreshing, but so is water.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bright yellow in appearance with little head, some bubbles. Hops come through alright in aroma, but the taste just isn't there folks. For all those people who think Heineken and Grolsh are good imports. Bland pils.
