JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 14, 2011
Bottle from the Carrboro Bev Co. Actually donít know that Iíd ever had this before. Bright golden pour, fizzy and with a billowy carbonation. Some modest hops in the nose, lots of dry fruits too. Mouthfeel feels just a bit weak, despite the abundant carbonation, petering out quite quickly. Flavor comes across as just a bit too bready, occluding some of the dry, hoppy, citrusy elements that seem more appealing (although you could argue that these tend to take the beer a bit to the far edges of the style designation). Decent overall, but probably wouldnít seek it out again.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - APR 13, 2011
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a very deep gold color with a small, frothy white head. The head fades rather quickly. The nose is fairly vibrant with sweet pale malts and a bit of hops. This one leans to the sweet side for a lager with some honey and a very slight leafy hop note. Medium body with average carbonation and a pleasingly crisp finish. Well balanced, maybe slightly malt heavy, but very drinkable. I thought it was rather enjoyable.

probstblueribbon (3728) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 18, 2011
12 fl oz bottle from BOTW (Rochester), served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear amber with a small white head. Aroma: Raw barley, pleasant light caramel with some fruity notes, grains/cereals, biscuit and toast malts, a touch of grassy hops? Palate: Medium body, fine effervescence. Flav.: A definite grassy, herbal note, bread/biscuit malts, some light vague fruitiness and a little caramel, other cereals/grains; dry with restrained bitterness and a light, pleasant malt finish.

Pleasant, like most Labs.

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - MAR 13, 2011
(bottle - 12 oz) Clear golden pour with mild carbonation and a very thin white head. Very sweet aroma. Corn, caramel and a slight fruityness underneath. Sweet and fruity flavor at the start that goes to a dry and lightly bitter malt middle. The sweetness hangs on for some reason as the mouthfeel really dries out and leaves a lightly bitter aftertaste.

brewski519 (644) - Morrisville, North Carolina, USA - MAR 2, 2011
12 oz bottle - Pours a golden color with a fairly thin white head - decent lacing. Aroma of bread, grainy malt and grass. The flavor is light, sweet malt, caramel and some mild, crisp hops. An okay brew but didnít knock my socks off.

roder60 (1289) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 30, 2011
Pours a hazy copper orange with nice layer of bubbly white head. Aroma is sweet caramel dipped oranges - kinda reminds me of my summer in argentina where weíd pick the mandarin oranges right off the trees and dip the pieces in dulce de leche. Flavor had a nice medium mouthfeel to it. Sweet caramel base some grain flavor and honey with hint of lemon flowers. Overall, very enjoyable beer. Paired well with goulash.

scottw86 (1167) - Maryland, USA - JAN 16, 2011
Poured a clear orange color with a thin off-white head. Bottle had a pretty cool picture of a dog. Aroma of pale malts with some honey. Some other spices as well. Taste has lots of pale malts with honey. Slightly syrupy and sweet, but still pretty drinkable. Overall itís not bad, but itís nothing special. I donít think itís a great example of the style.

glennmastrange (2685) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JAN 12, 2011
Bottle. Moderate malt aromas of cereal and nutty, light perfume and broth for the hops and yeast, with over ripe pear and honey in the background. Head is small, frothy/fizzy, white with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is slightly hazy and sparkling amber/gold. Flavor starts lightly to moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly to moderately acidic and faintly bitter. Palate is medium, watery with a soft to lively carbonation. This Dortmunder surprised me with itís pleasant flavors and great drinkability.
