Dortmunder is a great beer with perfect color and aroma The taste is very smooth and slightly more hoppy then Eliot ness. This is the best beer Great Lakes offer and I would recommend it to everyone.

Der Geruch ist irgendwie seltsam, fast ein bisschen wie Brühwürfel. Geschmack interessant, fast ein bisschen salzig oder umami. Nicht schlecht, aber merkwürdig.

Farbe amber, leicht trüb. Geruch leicht muffig. In Geschmack dann leicht malzig. Seltsamer Nachgeschmack, wenig bitter. Evtl. Autolyse?

Clear golden color with white head. Bready aroma with hints of grass. Taste is well balanced with notes of biscuit, grassy, herbal, citrus hops. Nicely carbonated and light body. Drinkable and enjoyable. A bit of a muddled finish.

Pours a hazy gold from the bottle with thin white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of sweet malt and crisp lager yeast esters. Taste follows, a bit heavy on the malts, but what you expect from the style. Decent.

Bottle to shaker glass. Pours clear golden, two finger off white head. Decent lacing and retention. Aroma is bready with citrus notes. Taste is nicely balanced, sweet with just the right bitterness for the style. Light bodied, lively carbonation, creamy mouth feel. Finishes bittersweet. Tasting notes of grass, herbs, biscuit, caramel and light roast. This beer surprised me! I’ve passed it over dozens of times. Very nice.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
BBD 3/16/15. Pours a clear light medium amber (copper gold). Normal head volume, outstanding lacing and retention.
Light nose of biscuit and herbal hops.
Light medium body with a smooth texture that imparts moments of oiliness and creaminess. Perfect carbonation with a rich prickly effervescence from the middle on.
The world class flavor profile is intense, complex and balanced. It begins with a blend of herbal and citric hop flavor over biscuit. As hop flavor recedes in the middle, a mild noble hop bitterness takes the forefront over a balancing biscuit sweetness. The finish is a bit crisp, and a tad dry, with a lingering noble hop flavor over a subtle receding bitterness.
