12 fl. oz brown bottle. Golden colour, with slight haze. Very tight, small white head. Nice malt aroma, slightly bready. Medium bodied with balanced clean malts, good hop notes providing mild bitterness and lingering in aftertaste.

pours a slightly orangish tinted gold. my first dortmunder, this is quite interesting. good body, smooth, you the malt profile and subtle hoppy finish make this an easy drinking lager that actually tastes good!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2007 Very meaty malt smell, disappearing head, deep gold color. Faint noble hop aroma. Taste is very interesting. Nice mouthfeel with plenty of body to go along with a bit of fizz. Taste is full of flavor, if only a macro could put this kind of flavor in their lagers. Fruity flavors with floral hop notes coming through. A very nice beer that may become one of my standbys for the coming summer months.

A much nicer lager than I usually prefer - perhaps I need to know more about this Helles style. Nice gold colour with a creamy head. Slightly sweet malt aromas with a good hop balance. Medium mouthfeel of mostly fairly crisp malt but with touches of light hops too.

My first Dortmunder: Lemony hops are inviting in the aroma. There’s a real dryness all the way throughout the beer. Leaves you wanting more. Good stuff.

For about 1/2 this golden beer, I thought this was a top notch beer, but after, I had trouble finishing it. Perhaps I am just a whimp

bottle. Deep golden color with moderate head. after trying other micro beers, this beer seems to have a mass-prod taste to it. taste doesn’t jump out, safe beer for lawnmower drinkers to try. I live in cleveland so it’s avail, but unless left at my house, i ain’t buyin it.

This beer has a nice cake aroma and flavor to it. Syrupy malts would like a stronger hops presence but I understand that not really the style. A fine offering from a brewery that never lets you down.

Perfect golden pour with a rapidly dimenishing off white head. Very smooth going down with a nice amount of hops in the finish.
