This golden-colored beer exports attracted by its fresh, hoppy aroma. The use of selected malts and hops from the Hallertau Ettaler Edelhell gives his special touch.

bhensonb (10905) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 20, 2011
Botttle from Half Time. Pours gold with a foamy white head. Light bready aroma with some light noble/citric hop. Med body. It is a little bready, and the hop is not strong. A light beer with body. The hop tends to dominate the finish, which surprises since it’s not too bitter. Quite drinkable, but not strongly flavored.

radagast83 (4544) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - DEC 11, 2010
Bottle. Poured a relatively pale color, medium sized foamy really white head. Sweet malts, grassy notes. Flavor was pretty light, clean but not very interesting. I would say it is a good palate cleanser, but nothing spectacular here.

Pours a clear amber colour with a small white head. Grainy and bread-like aroma with caramel malts. Flavour of sweet malts, caramel, bread and grass notes. Medium bodied with a slick mouthfeel. Soft carbonation. Average.

mansquito (3337) - Nueva York, New York, USA - SEP 1, 2010
New Beer Distributors, New York 500ml ($3.60): I just like dortmunders on hot summer days, especially when moving furniture. This is what I got with this pale golden beer without much head to speak of, but a nice hoppy and skunky aroma. Lager through and through. Sufficient hop bitterness. There are dry notes, but not as dry as a pilsener. Sweet by the end, but not too bad. This is what I wish macro lagers tasted like. Refreshing, but also with flavour.

Kavu (2186) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 11, 2010
Pours golden with a light head. Aroma and flavour are pretty much your everyday lager, perhaps a bit more bitter than average. Meh.

notalush (4823) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 24, 2010
A fairly sweet dortmunder, bordering on a heller bock in the sweetness category - still, it has the requisite semi-spicy noble hop character and moderate toasted grain flavor - fairly creamy texture - some notes of vanilla, honey, and herbs - nothing stand out, but it is hot out there right now, and this is doing the trick for me.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - JAN 12, 2010
Clear pale golden yellow, thin white head. Aroma of grain, grass, pear and corn. Taste is plain mildly sweet apple and corn. Very thin texture, watery, soft carb.

Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 6, 2010
Pours a lasting ring of white head with a clear, golden body. Aromas of grass and grain. Flavors of grain, little earth, grass. Finish is creamy and grainy. Nice body.
