A Traditional German Lager brewed with all German grain & yeast. Very drinkable.

12oz bottle. 6%, sort of on the high side for a lager, right? Clear light orange color, minimal head that fades to nothing, some bubbles on the side of the glass. Particles floating in the body. Moderate, pronounced but smooth carbonation, more dry finish. Boring lagery taste, a little skunky... Pretty disappointing, isnít obviously high-quality like Great Lakes and Stoudts Dortmunders are. Light savory, sort of a salty bite, intrusive light bitterness. Not a good lager, not easy to drink

Light on the bitterness with sweet malts. Yellow bodied Helles could be relabeled a Michelob and I wouldnít no the difference. Decent brew, just no pizazz.

Pours a slightly hazy deep golden with a marginal white head that diminishes, but continues to coat the surface. Almost no aroma, perhaps a little bread dough. Taste is sweet toasted malt along with notes of caramel. This is pretty decent, but is more on the order of a Marzen rather than a Dort.

Smells great, with a wonderful apperarence. Has a fantastic hoppy flover. But not too overbearing.

Stronger than expected aroma with a golden brown appearance, balanced taste and comfortable mouthfeel. Easy drinking beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Light bready malt aroma. Golden with a small off-white head. Flavor much like aroma, bready malt and light bitter finish. Medium body and carbonation. Easy drinking.

shrubber85 (9625) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAY 31, 2012
Bottle. Lemon and corny barley malt aroma. Clear golden yellow color with moderate head. Mildly sweet barley malt and lightly bitter herbal hops flavor. Not bad - a decent Dortmunder.

12 ounce bottle. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a clear gold color with about a half inch off-white head that stayed around a little while. Thereís a small amount of lacing. The brew smells like bready and sweet malt, and some light grassy hops. It tastes like bready and sweet malt. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, itís a bit creamy with a moderate amount of carbonation. It goes down easy enough. This certainly isnít one of the better Dortmunder Lagers Iíve had. Itís not a bad beer by any means, but thereís nothing about this that would make me want to buy it again.

Not very bitter. Slightly sweet. Stupid dog on the front. Not the best.... Not standout but drinkable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

FROTHINGSLOSH (5969) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 15, 2012
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark golden color with a medium sized foamy white head that faded and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was tangy sugar, faint caramel and vague golden fruits. The flavor was tangy sweet sugar, honey, bread and golden fruits. Medium finish and body though fairly smooth. Ok.
