2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at Biermarkt. Clear golden with a fluffy white head. Strong malt liquor grainy sweetness, booze, grassy, peppery hops, wow...gross. Medium body, moderate carbonation, a little slick. Flavor is similar, definitely malt liquor, clean; lightly sweet, gentle bitterness, pleasant sweet, grainy finish. It is what it is.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.5 can. Clear, yellow color and a medium, thin, white head. Aroma of yeasts, barnyard, cheap pale malts and hops. Taste is quite sweet, malty, with notes of honey - not that bad actually. Light body, texture somewhere between slick and creamy, carbonation can be counted as somewhat beyond average. Finish is short and also quite sweet but not half as good as the taste. Overall a beer which surpasses its own style though by no means a good brew in and of itself.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
2015-02-11. Crisp yellow body with a nice creamy white head and lace. 3+ Aroma is mild, with lightly grainy cereal notes to the pale malt. Touch of honey like sweetness. Flavour is sweetish, lightly grainy pale malt. Surprisingly mild and quaffable for the abv while chilled, the grains and alcohol become more pronounced as it warms. Significantly to its detriment. Average bodied palate, soft carbonation. On tap as "Ceres" at Town Crier, Toronto.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Boks (med navnet Ceres Dortmunder) fra Kvickly Nørrebros Runddel: på tide å teste en av de danske klassikere. Klar kobbergylden med film/gardinskum. Aroma av (karamell)malt og diskret humle. Helt ok men ikke minneverdig på noen som helst måte. Verden har gått videre.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Copenhagen 20/1 2015. 50 cl can from Rema 1000 under the name "Dortmunder". Pours clear gold with white head. Quickly diminishing. Aroma is slightly acidic and a bit metallic. Medium carbonation. Taste is rather bitter leaving a dry feeling in the mouth. Accompagnied by a little sourness. Metallic taste of alcohol. I do not see many signs of the German inspiration claimed on the label.
