Pours the color of light straw with just a tint of amber. Has a finger of creamy white foam that fell as I drank to a thin ring.Nose is malt sweetness and leafy herbal. Cheerful golden scent of grass and a bit of spice. Moderate malts on the nose. The taste is perfection. A citric crispness takes the palate to a smooth and apporachable malt sweetness. Leafy flavors with plenty of earth and a a spicy bitter. The mouthfeel is exemplary. Lively and crisp like a brisk wind. It’s sweetly breaddy and fills up your mouth to finish dry and with a touch of spice and faint bitter to linger in the aftertaste.

Friendly. A lively tonic with bright and favorable aspects. Just what the doctor ordered.

An excellent interperetation of the Dortmund style with an impressive balance of malt and hop flavor! No flaws here.

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.

On tap at The Great American Pub and Diner. The appearance is...well...golden. Haha. Pours a nice white foamy head. It has a hoppy smell for a lager. The taste of hops is present. I think I taste some lemony sorta. Not a bad lager.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2006 Wow this is a really really light colored lager. Nice pure white lasting head though. Aroma is grainy and bready with some light pils malt. A tough of floral and herbal hops as well. Flavor is also mostly malty with a slight bitter finish. Finish is relatively smooth and very clean. Perfect summer beer. Very close to the Munich Helles style.

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

UPDATED: APR 1, 2013 Golden color with a small white head and no lacing. Sweet malty lagerish aroma. Light tart lemon and sweeter malt taste.

This was the biggest surprise of the night. I really didn’t expect much from this one. Pours a clean golden color with a white head. Citrusy aroma. Flavors were more complex than I expected. Lots of sweet lemonade at first with some oranges and lemon peal in the finish. Went down nice and smooth. Not bad at all.

Poured hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma of caramel and biscuit. Sweet malt flavor. Body held up.
