50 cl bottle as a christmas present. Golden beer, white small head. Sweet aroma has butter and grassy hops. Reminds of some n/a beers. A bit sweet taste has malts, grain and hay. Some citrus in there too. Very soft and smooth brew.

Poured with ok head that fell quickly. Straw color. Not a bad lager, but I choose it to keep the bottles for my home brews. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JDBaker11058 (1246) - Maryland, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Appearance: slightly hazy light gold, with one finger of bright white head and minimal lacing. Aroma: a bit of grass, with some honey smacks cereal, biscuit, and creamed corn. Taste: very fresh-tasting, with semi-dried grass providing a nice balance to sweetish cereal grains. Finish: clean, crisp, and extremely refreshing, but not long lasting. Notes: This was an outstanding classic Dortmunder/Helles lager. Perfectly balanced, very fresh and lively in the palate, and refreshing. Couldn’t ask for more.

Bottle shared with McTapps. Just another simple and easy going lager. Nothing special and very average.
