Nice golden/amber color,small white head that faded slowly and left a slight lace behind.Good light malty aroma with a slight hint of olive (Green) and maybe some hops and fruit as well.Nice fruity flavor some malt and a nice hop presence that doesn’t get to out of hand but stays in the quite refreshing range.A very nice brew and i’m glad i have one more for later.Thanks go to Footbalm for sending me this brew and others from this brewery along with some great samples from his company.

Bottle. Pours an amber to yellow color. Whitish head, medium lived. Aroma is a combination of malt and hop. Mouthfeel is medium to light. Taste is clean and crisp. Pretty good beer overall.

Pours golden (obviously) with a small head and heavy carbonation. Taste is light, crisp, and malty. Low hops. Slight fruit aftertaste. A great summertime beer.

Bottle Pours a a slightly hazy light golden amber with a good foamy white head. Aroma is a light fresh smelling grain, apple cider, and yeast with an easy hops trace. Flavor is slightly sweet, bready and the slightly higer ABV is noticeable. Feel is very light and crisp and the finish is quick, clean with just a hint of hops. Very nice refreshing, light brew.

Light red with a great, huge, chunky, disappearing head. Aroma a bit weak with light malts and a little citrus. Flavor is lightly sweet, fruity malts, matched up with a solidly hoppy finish. Feels both clean and silky, yet not sticky; nice. Tasty.

sweet smell as it was poured, nice golden hue with a decent size head. Just enough hops to keep the malt at bay. Would recommend this beer to people

First Dortmunder, I think. I was surprised that I liked this golden beer. Lots of malt, which I’m not ordinarily a huge fan of. I think I’ll check out some more German styles after this one.

Clear deep golden in color with a decent white foamy head that leaves good lacing in my glass. Bready and flowery aromas, nice bready and grainy flavors, medium bodied, nice smooth mouthfeel, finishes clean and dry, very tasty and drinkable, this is an awesome brew.

By a long shot, the best Dortmunder I’ve sampled. Excellent color and head make this a very beautiful beer. Nose is the weak point, but the flavor is also great. A very clean, refreshing, and surprisingly good brew.
