I used to have a giant can of this. As I child I used it as a piggy bank. I’m glad to have finally drank it, though I honestly wouldn’t try it again.

Jaune pale avec une petite tête blanche. L’arôme léger des céréales. Le goût est légèrement des céréales avec un peu d’houblon. Très facile à boire. Rafraîchissante mais rein hors de normale.

Burk från Systembolaget. Ljust guldfärgad vätska med vitt skum. Degig höig doft. Sädig fyllig smak men med tunn kropp. Jag kan ha påverkats av grannarna som grillar plast (?) Lite för dåligt med bubblor för att funka för mig.

Alengrin (1025) - BELGIUM - AUG 6, 2014
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.

Clear golden body with a thin white head. No lacing. Aroma of biscuits and malts. Taste was simple. Very basic beer

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

Drunk from 33 cl can bought in Luxembourg. Plain pils. Nothing special or unusual. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ARH (371) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 13, 2014
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.

Bottle. Hazy, golden, frothy, white foam, light body, oily feel, soft carbonation, & astringent finish.

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.
