"A crystal clear golden beer that crowns a glass with a frothy head of dazzling white. A deep hop aroma and a rich long lasting flavour that is underscored by a light, barely perceptible hint of hop bitterness."

badgerben (4777) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - DEC 29, 2005
Clear yellow color with a thick white head. Grainy aroma, but clear and light, not muddled. Also a bit of fruit and barnyard qualities. The taste was very similar. It was grainy, but very fresh and not the silo dust that most grainy beers end up being. A little bit of sweetness on the end, reminiscent of honey.

Golden and malty with a clean taste.Left no lacing just a slight lingering maltiness. A reasonable attempt at a very pleasant style.

Bottle. Frothy good mostly deminishing head. Moderate malty aroma, slightly citruslike. Metallic flavour, short finish. Nice palate.

Light bready aroma. Fresh, light malty flavor. Nice dry, bitter finish. One of the better beers of this county.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 22, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Pilsener golden with a creamy, white head. Malty aroma. Soft, light body dominated by malt with a weak, underlying tartness that indicates the use of brewing cereals. But overall a decent and quenching drink. 211105

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2005 Pours light golden with a thin white head and sparkling carbonation. Aroma is nasty sweetish malts, DMS, and honey. Taste is sweet bready malts and a strange fruity butter finish....? Mouthfeel is sticky and deceivingly heavy, with medium carbonation. This does not taste like any Dortmunder I’ve had. Because, I taste corn, and rice (which they admit to). And to think that I got excited when I found out this was a Dortmunder. Overall, if I were to rate purely on style, I’d say this is a complete failure in my book. Why would I want my glass decorated with a thick scum of glaring whiteness? Does that sound even the least bit appealing? Why do beers from Eastern Europe always taste so sugary sweet? This beer did not sit well.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - OCT 27, 2005
Explosive carbonation on this bottle,Cloudy golden color,large white head that faded slowly then faded to a nice lace.Grainy aroma with some hints of fruit and also coming off as being a little sweet.The flavor is nothing special though a bit medicinal in the beginning lots of carbonation giving it a slight acidic feel on the pallate.The taste is kind of grainy with some hops coming on in the end and a mild bitterness.Not something i’d care to try again,in fact i think the Baltas was better,because this one is getting sickening fast.Just plain Yuck.

Ho-hum. Although I like Lithuanian beers quite a bit (truly!), this tasted somewhat metallic and yeasty in an odd way. Straw-colored and tasting sort of Eastern European-weird. I probably shouldn’t be surprised that I could taste a hint of alcohol in this brew. I’m sort of used to that from brews that are of lesser quality.
