2.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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".

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Been looking for this one awhile. Grabbed a sixer at Viking Premium Beverage on King Ave. in Cowlumbus. Pours a light sparkling straw. The tall frothy thick white head is mostly lasting with decent lacing. The grassy and piney nose is fresh with a slight hint o yeast. The flavor is rich and deep for one of such fair complexion. The brew begins sweetish and finishes with a nice round bisquity quality. The light to medium body is creamy and soft with an astringent feel to the finish. Perfect for summertime.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
If anyone is going to know how to brew a Dortmunder - it is going to be someone with it in their name! Starts off with a clean, biscuity aroma. Slight, white head with a wee bit of lacing. Pleasant golden appearance. Zesty flavor with a bit of buttery maltiness in the back end. Goes down extremely smooth. One of those beers I always thought I had already had - but upon researching realized I had not.

Tastes like you'd expect a German beer to taste. Pretty good but not great.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not much in the way of a head. A bit too much carbonation. Pale color. Overall, not bad, but kind of thin.

Some sweetness and an oliy palate. A bit too thin.
