2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours transparent amber body with a foamy off white head. Smells of bread, hint of caramel, citrus and earthiness. Tastes of earth, floral, hint of citrus and caramel. Pretty average overall and is this really a dortmunder style beer?

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours dark golden with a thin maintained white head. Notes of caramelized malt, buttery, solvent, higher alcohols, bitter herbs. Medium bodied, lightly sweet with lively carbonation. Either this beer was fermented very uncleanly or this was an infected bottle.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle pours golden with a thin white head. Aromas are sweet and grainy, not much else. Taste is not as sweet as I was expecting, there is a decent hoppiness the provides just a little spice. Overall, not the best beer, but not bad for a lager.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
bottle from mix pack. hazy gold with small, fluff, white head. pineapple and copper coins aroma. not really getting the distinct bready maltiness associated with this style. this one is more fruity with pineapple notes and estery yeast. weird red apple finish. didn’t get this one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dark gold body with a nice one inch frothy white head that had pretty nice retention. The nose is bready malt with just a light floral hoppiness. Rather subdued and gentle. The flavor is pretty decent, bready malt, fairly dry, with a minimal bitterness. Lighter bodied with fizzy carbonation. Pretty decent, but I had this about an hour after drinking three Great Lakes Dortmunder Gold on tap, an this just doesn’t hold a candle to that.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a golden brown with a medium white head. Smells rather hoppy for a lager with a hint of citrus but with a hint of malt. Somewhat bitter taste but very enjoyable even taste. Light body with somewhat creamy texture and somewhat lively. A good lager. Almost on par with Dortmunder Gold in my book.
