3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Iím pleased with this beer, akron. It is very drinkable as advertised in the blurb above. Max (the dog on the label, didnít 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 didnít 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.

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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
