Bottle brown, 500 ml,12.4 P, got it in Munchen
Appearance: Pours pale golden, perfectly clear, gently carbonated but well saturated body, head is snowy white, initially medium, deep frothy than rocky with big bubbles in structure, leaving lacing traces, head decreases to small.
Aroma: Regular and typical of its style, dusty, flowery - spicy hoppy profile but gentle and recognisable only in terms of aroma, not in bitterness, clear, very fresh, inviting, soft and crispy malty base of bright malt.
Flavour: Very spicy and dusty aromatic front, later on very refreshing malty crispness on palate, gentle alcoholic note being positive and contributing well to the overall beer character, salty, finish duration is moderate in lenght, very clean and natural flavour, well pronounced.
Palate: Body is medium, texture is watery and oily, carbonation on palate is moderate, finish feel is crispy, malty, fresh, clean, dusty - flowery, gently alcoholic.

mcdav2154 (449) - GERMANY - JUL 2, 2009
swing top bottle. clear golden color with a huge white head that stays for a bit. Lacing is spotted. Smells of malt and grass which is pretty average. Taste is refreshing with malt, grass, and a slight bitter hops note. Descent beer but expectations were higher.

rosenbergh (9159) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 27, 2009
500 ml bottle. From Germany. Clear pale golden colour with white creamy medium-size head. Aroma is sweetish grainy malt, fruits and grassy notes. Flavour is some grassy maltiness, light fruitiness and bitter hoppiness but also some stale alcohol. The label is remarkably tempting, unfortunately the beer isn’t.

TBone (14785) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 4, 2009
Bottled (Beerangel, BB 10/2009). Clear yellow color, decent white head. Grassy-straw nose with slightly metallic notes. Palate is quite watery. Mostly apple fruity maltyness with grassy hopping. Quick finish. Maybe ice cold at summer, but otherwise useless.

oh6gdx (23682) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 11, 2009
Bottled (from beerangel.de). Golden colour, mediumsized fluffy/foamy head. Aroma is malts, saltwater, quite doughy and also some slight floral hops and grass. Flavour is saltwatery, doughy as well as floral hops and mild buttery notes. Clean, but quite boring. Quite sticky palate, compared to many other Dortmunder/Helles ones.

I expected more...Pale golden body with a small white head. Moderated malty and yeast nose and flavor. Nothing exciting, only the packing...

Bottle, 5.4% at LCRBM08. Malty aroma, hint of honey. Clear yellow colour, no head. Good malty flavour, hint of citrus in the finish. Slightly sweet. Good mouthfeel.
