Topaz hue. Malty, corn syrup and subtle toasted grain notes. Doughy finish.

Draught: Aroma of citrus, malt, and a little bit of hops. Nice golden color all the way through. Very small head that did not last. No lacing. Flavor of a lager but very crisp and refreshing. Remided me of Sam Smith’s Organic Lager. Perhaps a little to sweet for me. I could drink this easy, if I wanted to. Overall, not a bad brew but I’d rather have something else.

Pours light straw, with medium head and good lacing. Smells of slight hops, malt. Finishes malty, with slight sweetness and honey. Very crisp, with great mouthfeel.

boto (1850) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - DEC 29, 2003
Draught: This one was a slightly hazy, straw color. There was no head to speak of. Pleasant, but non-descript aroma. There was a fairly typical sweetness to the beer. Medium bodied. Not too bad!

A rather sweet lager that perhaps isn't quite a dortmunder. Golden color with a fair amount of malt. Not much bitterness to speak of.

Average tasting sweet lager. That's all I had to say about this beer, although I've been asked to say more.

Had this on draft at the Grey Lodge pub in Phila. Didn't like this one. The only flavor it had was bad German Malt.

chronictonic (473) - Oreland, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 12, 2002
Buttery flavor overpowered the malt flavor. No hop aroma or flavor. Undrinkable. Judging by the other reviews perhaps this was a bad batch?

NeroFiddled (105) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2002
An excellent interperetation of the Dortmund style with an impressive balance of malt and hop flavor! No flaws here.

Very smooth, crisp, clean taste, your run-of-the-mill lighter type of lager
