3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle; poured an orange amber type color, somewhat glowing; whitish head. Aroma of bread, some caramel, fruit/sweetness, and grass/earth. Slightly tingly on the palate in a positive way. Slightly sweet and earthy, bready with some caramel and fruit. A nice version of the style.

Somewhat on the amber in color for a lager, it’s mostly clean and clear, with a foamy bright white head and no rising carbonation. It smells like a lager, but very grain-forward in character. It really reminds me of an Oktoberfest/Marzen in its ease of drinking, slight caramel sweetness, and malty finish. Good for an Oktoberfest, different for a lager, a pleasant drink overall.

I really liked this beer. i recieved it this month from beer of the month club. I have to say i haven’t been impressed with the beers that i i’ve gotten from them but i actually liked this one. It’s very smooth and doesn’t finish with an overwhelming hopping flavor. I tend to stay away from the bitter beers but this one is just about right. it’s a little bitter but it doesn’t linger. the flavor is great! i would buy this again.

A yellow beer with a small head. Malts and soft fruit flavors--peach, plum. A bit of dry hop at the end. Not a style I generally go to, but this one was OK. Nothing great, but OK.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle. It pours a solid amber color with a decent white head. The nose is muted with a little grain and grass. The flavor has a hint of sweetness up front with the grain coming through first. The grassy hops overcome the malt pretty quickly leaving you with a slightly bitter finish. Not bad, but not in the greatest harmony either. Light to medium body with average carbonation and a weak finish. Not my favorite lager.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Date tasted: May 10, 2013...
Occasion: long/good week of baseball coaching...
Appearance: odd sediment floats in a burnt-orange body; nice cirrus tracings of off-white head...
Aroma: flavorfully thick,, doughy fragrance; sugary with toffee also...
Palate: smooth yet slightly complex mouthfeel; worthwhile to hold before swallowing...
Taste: intensely malty, strong finish with a shortness of hops...sweet and flavorful...
Overall: as Dortmunders go, a solid offering--couples with chips well and yet could stand alone for a night of socializing as well....
