3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours fairly crystal clear bright golden yellow color with a small dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance of bready malt and earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and balance of bready malt and earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very clean on lager flavors with minimal yeast ester notes present. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, fairly crisp, and lightly creamy/bready/sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 5%. Overall this is a very nice Dortmunder lager style. All around good robustness and balance of bready malt and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth, crisp, and clean to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2015 Bottle from Total Wine in Huntington Beach. Pours light gold with a fizzy white head. Aroma is bready with a touch of grassy/spicy. Near med body. Flavor is bready with some interesting grass and spice bits. Not the typical Helles hop impact. Not more. Just seems more complicated. Good for the style.
