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 it’s pleasant flavors and great drinkability.

I’m pleased with this beer, akron. It is very drinkable as advertised in the blurb above. Max (the dog on the label, didn’t you read his dog tags?) seems to solmenly approve of this beer. It is a departure from the other leg-related labels that seem to dominate most of the other bottles from this brewery. I for one welcome the change- legs are alright, but this is beer not legs. This would not go over well in Africa (Gerber discovered ). Actually I just checked that on snopes... but they didn’t have a big BUSTED or TRUE label so I just ingored the page. TLDR amirite? Along those lines this beer is light and tasty. Its is a bit bitter at first, but overall is happy.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 6, 2011
12oz. Bottle: Aroma of malt, grain, light honey, biscuit, light noble hops, slight grass, slight yeast, and a hint of diacetyl. Poured amber in color with a small to medium-sized, creamy, dense, off-white head that greatly diminished but lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer, as well as around the edges. Hazy. Lightly sparkling. A few small particles throughout. Flavor is light to medium sweet and slightly bitter. Tastes of malt, honey, bread, noble hops, slight grass, and slight yeast. Medium body. Average texture. Average carbonation. Malt, honey, noble hop finish is light to medium sweet.

notalush (4763) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 25, 2010
Starting Christmas off light and easy - hazy gold pour - well-retained head - aroma is bready, yeasty with a little tang to it, toasted grains, light grassy noble hops - very full in the mouth - tastes like liquid bread - yeasty, grainy, toasty - moderate honey sweetness - hops are a bit subdued; must be a somewhat old bottle - still, a crisp bitterness develops - a previous rater says this is "like food" - very much so.

Suttree (5013) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 6, 2010
Gold, loose foamy head. Look, this is one of those cases where I try my best to appreciate subtle nuances but Man this just tastes like beer. Oh, sure I get a little bit of fruitiness, and I suppose I could try to find a fancy word to describe it, but this just seems like, y’know, a beer...

Bottle from Half Time. Pours amber with a foamy off-white head. Aromas of bread and grass/herb. Med + body with thick carbonation. Flavor is bready, with some citrus and grass. This stuff is like food.

b33r (667) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - SEP 17, 2010
Translucent orange with small off-white head. Nice malty aroma. Flavor is a good mix of malts and hops with the malts giving it a nice smoothness.

shadey (1879) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 25, 2010
12oz bottle from BOTW. Pour is a nice golden color with a thin white of cream. Aroma is clean, with some nice toasty maltiness and just a touch of cleansing european hops. The flavor is much the same, the malts are the body of this beer, but they are effortlessly drinkable and not overly sweet or sticky at all. The dry grassy hops are just there in the finish and add a little character and finish. A really nice little lager.

Sammy (8351) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2010
Pours mid-yellow body with some white foamish head. Aroma is malty. Middling mouthfeel. Tastes so-so, not overally drinkable.
