2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On Tap: This brew poured a medium head of finly sized mostly lasting white bubbles that left a good lacing and a very softly carbonated straw yellow colored body. It had a medium malt-hop aroma and a malt -hop flavor to go along with it. There was just a slight bite in its tingly mouthfeel in the finish.

Golden Helles lager with a slightly sweet, malty, finish. Mild hops with little bitterness. Finishes quite smooth. A decent beer from the Dortmunder style, though it's a bit week. Not really bad, but not great.

This is my first try of this beer since Miller used to brew it. Overall, it now seems like a slighty better than average Continential Lager. Not as tasty as a true Dortmunder. Drinkable, perhaps, but nothing to fight over.

Remember Nationsl Lampoons Vacation? Christie Brinkley had one of these in her hand while flirting with Chevy Chase from a distance. That scene always makes me thirsty for one of these babies.This is an easy drinker. IF you're not careful, you may end up on your ass because of these. A good warm weather beer due to the fact it tastes like water. Hint of hops with a nice mellow finish. The bottle is cool as well.

Very, VERY! drinkable, getting lost on them is too easy, smooth with a hint of bitters and nice easy finish, super beer at a super price (in Germany) Im not sure how the bottled exports measure up (tap rules)

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This Dortmunder lager pours a clear, golden color with a small, white head that dissipates entirely. It has a very faint aroma of sweet malts with just a hint of hops. It has a light body with a smooth mouthfeel. The flavor is malty sweet up front with a medium long, sweet finish. The carbonation level is medium. A decent, drinkable lager, nothing more and nothing less.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2003 Ordinary beer, but remains pretty well done. Blonde color, good hoppy taste. Pleasant dry bitterness

We lost this for a while at the Yardhouse, apparently because they cut US production and started brewing exclusively in Germany. So we got it back and I was eager to try. Turned out to be nothing more than a run of the mill straightforward European pale lager. Very light in body with little malt content and flavor. Slightly bitter but mostly dry in the finish.

Much better than when it was being brewed by Miller 20 in the early 80's. it poured out a golden yellow color, with a slight haziness to it. Had a decent enough head on it, but didn't last too long. Slightly bitter taste to it, with a metallic finish to it as well. It did taste of malts, and a slight hops quality to it also.
