3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Surprisingly excellent Dortmunder, only grabbed a single because I wasn’t expecting much but this beer delivers. Aroma has a good helping of grassy malt. It’s thick, crisp, and tart with a nice bitterness to the nose. Standard appearance, medium gold color with a large initial head that becomes a fine film and leaves little lacing. Extremely crisp, light and airy on the palate. Quenching and refreshing, mmm mmm good. Flavor has a light, crisp, snappy malt backbone. The malt is tangy with fresh grass and a light fruitiness (think tart apples and calm lemon). Overall the beer is balanced with fresh clean hops. This beer is truly great for it’s style.

Weak. This beer has a slight aroma of skunk, and not surprisingly, the flavor is not much different. Taste lingers far longer than it should, because you really didn’t it there in the first place.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Probably one of the least flavorful beds I’ve ever tasted. Delivers an incredible aroma, which implies a bold taste, but it offers very little in the taste department. Not a repeat purchase, but not necessarily bad tasting.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours light yellow with a fully receding white head. Aroma of herbal malts mixed with grainy notes of bread and honey. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with very light hoppy resins and lively carbonation. Solid example of the style. Straightforward and easy to drink.

Bottle - 500ml. Golden body with good carbonation and a decent white foamy nead. Well balanced, malty/hoppy aroma with bready and grassy hints. Taste is refreshing and ends with a nice hoppy finish. Good example of a standard "everyday" Helles.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle... Crystal clear yellow lager with a large frothy, white head. Terrific retention. Brown bottle, but it’s light-struck. The aroma is skunky and lemony. The flavor leans slightly on the bitter side of balance. Medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation. Lengthy, minerally, bitter finish.
