UPDATED: JAN 26, 2008 Cereal lager aroma. Medium orange brown. Toasty, dry, low hopping. Crackery, slightly metallic finish. Thanks to KJ for bringing this one back from her Christmas vacation.

the beer discription claims it's "a medium dark lager made with two row pale and munich malts". the discription on the board seemed conflicted about whether this is a dortmunder or "a true german oktoberfest". what th?!? i think i can help a little bit: i don't know what it is, but it ain't no oktoberfest. pours a thin school bus yellow, and served with a modest head that "diminished" all the way to irrelevance. i'm no scholar of the dortmunder style, but this has vestiges of what i understand to be those qualities: brisk carb, un-caramelized cracker malts, starchy dryness, and an almost wishful-thinking impression of floral hops, though the later is clearly understated. seems like it is stronger than your typical lager. seems like a fair enough demi-dortmunder. seems like i won't be eager to try it again soon.
