This is just a well made lager. Nothing spectacular, nothing mindblowing. Just a here drink this and donít think too much about it beer. Love it.

Wow! A pale lager that actually has some hop aroma and flavour! Grassy, and subtle, with some super solid cereals. The mouth feel is a little fuller than I expected, but the flavour is there. The ultimate lawn mower beer. A great pale lager. This should be in ever bar to convert macro drinkers.

To call this lager bland would be overly generous, overwhelming aftertaste of sugar stuck on the palate

Sweet, bland, pale stuff. I guess they sell it but I canít imagine why. Itís certainly nothing close to a dortmunder - not even a bad one.

Iím a lager fancier and Dortmund helles is one of my favorite quaffs (when I find it relatively fresh), Lager is not as simple as popular myth has it - itís actually a very delicate brew with decent malt complexity and itís easy to screw up with poor mashing and sparging technique - anyway this sample is fairly well done...it has been age filtered and has a delicate nose to it, big malt delivery with fair hop balance, medium body and long doughy finish with light bready sweetness in the finish, A good Dortmunder rendition, but not outstanding.

355 ml can from LCBO. Clear deep yellow with white head. Smells of euro hops, grain, some fruit. Same notes for the taste. Full flavoured german-style lager. Would be a go-to if the price per can came down a bit.

355ml can. Hazy gold pour. Very large and sticky white cap with lots of thick lacing. Nose has grain and bread, mild grass. Taste has bready malts, light caramel. Grassy aftertaste with mild bitterness. Surprisingly good premium lager.

Deep golden pour with a thick white head. The nose is nicely malty. Clean and lightly honeyed with some soft herbal/floral hop aroma and flavour. A little bit of sweetness and some soft caramelly flavour. They call it a Dortmunder - but it isnít.

Pretty "ballsy for a lager... it has a true manly taste to it compared to the usual commercial crap. Nice overall taste.

UPDATED: MAR 19, 2014 Pours a pale gold with a nice frothy & lacey white head. Aroma of sweet pale malts, bready malts and sweet fruity esters. Taste is biscuit, sweet crisp fruits and bready malts. Finish is crisp and clean and very refreshing, excellent lager.
