Better than most Dortmunder/Helles I've had, Some hops in the aroma. About what I was expecting as far as nothing that stands way out, bad or good. I think it would taste great with a brat and some saurkraut.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
Some malt apparent in the aroma at low temperature but rpidly takes on a cabbagey character as it warms. Pale straw colour and absolutely clear but very little nucleation. Some hops on the finish though overall it seems grassy. Nice full mouthfeel - certainly got this right, but overall it falls flat. Bottle (green).

Can. Pours pale yellow, decent sized fluffy white head. Decent amount of hops and bitterness. Slight floral notes? Enjoyable but unexceptional.

The flavor of this beer was actually much better than anticipated. Not the greatest of German beers by a long shot but comparable to Warsteiner. The slight bitterness is the only thing that sets it apart from light American beer.

Strong, with a fairly bitter aftertaste. Not as good as I remembered it, but still not bad.
