1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Sparkling clear, straw-colored lager. Small, fizzy, white head. Perfume and black pepper in the aroma with notes of butterscotch.
The flavor is of sweet, canned corn up front. Well-balanced on the backside. Light-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Short, crisp, clean finish.

It has an enticing aroma, with a strong flavour and hop and malt flavours that balance each other out. Bottle design doesnt do it justice. cheers

Skunky in green bottle. I guess it looked nice and had some discernable hoppy flavors.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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).
