COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bruce describes his classic German-style lager as "pale gold in color with a blend of Pilsner maltiness and a mild hops aroma. The bitterness is just enough to balance the taste of the malt." Bruce is a former music teacher who began homebrewing 13 years ago when his wife gave him a kit for Christmas. He has since become an accomplished homebrewer and shares his knowledge and passion for beer by teaching classes in homebrewing and beer appreciation.

Pretty drinkable, but not very memorable. Malt, caramel, not much hops. Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. Not offensive, but nothing I’d write home about.

Bouteille 12 oz, courtoisie de Hogtownharry. De couleur dorée et légèrement voilée. Nez de grains de malt pâle, léger de maïs sucré, de houblon herbeux et floral, de miel et de fruits (abricots sucrés) avec des notes de pain. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et légèrement croustillant ainsi qu’une texture crémeuse aux petites notes sirupeuses. Goût de grains de malt pâle accompagné d’un goût de levures fruitées (abricots sucrés, notes d’agrumes, traces de raisins) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût malté de biscuits au miel, léger de pain aux notes grillées et de maïs sucré et avec des notes de caramel butterscotch sucré parallèlement à un goût moyennement amer et asséchant de houblon floral et herbeux jusqu’en finale où l’on retrouve également un léger goût de marmelade et des traces d’épices (poivre). Post-goût moyen et un peu sec, moyennement amer de houblon floral et herbeux avec un léger goût fruité (pelures d’abricots, notes de zest d’agrumes) et des petites notes de sucre chimique.

BREWMUSKCLES (2195) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 6, 2007
this beer is a clear winner! does not smell like much...but the tase is complex and the body and carbonation is nice. there is a chalkiness to the finish that could use a little work, but man i like this beer. all good mildly fruity flavor and perfectly moderate carbonation. nice hop profile throughout the taste. stingy german with the american style hop resiny flowery piney touch. you’re wife did us all a favor! just touch sweet,fruity hoppy with a nice mild malt body this pale is different and good. lasting finish that you don’t mind having around.

thedm (4924) - Fort Wayne, USA - AUG 1, 2007
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy with a frothy top white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a transparent softly carbonated golden brown colored body. The mild aroma was malty dough and grassy. The mouth feel was very tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of malt hops sweet and mildly vinous. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

WISEGUY572 (1372) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 1, 2007
Pretty average stuff. Beautiful golden pour, crystal clear, with huge soapy head. Simple flavor, sweet malts, floral hops, bitter finish. Average mouthfeel, about right for a Dortmunder export.

Bottle from HEB. Pours golden yellow with an off-white head. Tastes of slightly stale bread and dry malt. Slight hop bitterness, no real bite. Finishes with a slight sweet tinge. This beer is not hitting well with me for the style, but maybe I’ve had too many helles in Deutschland.
