12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy gold that eventually becomes mostly clear with a thin white head that lasted through the first two sips and left scant lace. Mild aroma of malt with some slight breadiness. The flavor is malt, bread and mixed fruit (mostly pears and apples). Fairly smooth mouthfeel. Slight bitterness at the finish. Medium bodied. No problems here.

A very nice lager/dortmunder. Just tapped the keg at my local watering hole and this stuff was really, really good. Hide the 6 percent alcohol extremely well. Extremely drinkable. Great summer/session brew. Nice work.

12 oz bottle. Pours hazy gold with a fizzy off white head. Smells of mollasses and corn. Tastes very malty, flavors of corn, toffee, and a little peppery. Aftertaste is sweet and thick.

Poured golden from a 12oz bottle. A nice white head was present. Aroma was that of dough and a little something on the sweet side. Taste was similar but with a added citrus touch. Body was medium, which works well for this beer. Overall a good summer drinking beer.

Clear shining golden lager with sparse bubbles and a lasting white crown. Charming pale malt aroma includes delicious fresh bread notes accompanied by juicy honeyed fruitiness soft toastiness and a touch of... cream soda? Just a tad of aromatic hops bring soapy/shaving cream not unpleasant intricacies. Remarkably drinkable, while a minute note of alcohol can be caught in the finish, that’s a 12oz I feel like drinking in less than 5 minutes. I most likely would if I were not rating it! In mouth, its fruity character for a lager seemingly fit the ample pale malt character and the lemony hop finish balances out the finish and remove any impression of thickness. An excellent malt-forward lager in bottled form, at less than 2$ a bottle. Definitely worth a try, hopefully you stumble upon a fresh one.

Drake (11961) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 22, 2010
12 ounce bottle from Vintage Cellar in Blacksburg, VA. Pours a hazy orange color with fine suspended particles. Fair head retention and lacing. Aroma of caramel, butterscotch, butter, toasted malts. Taste is butterscotch, green apple and other fruit notes, caramel and an odd tart note. Medium bodied. Really and odd beer. A shame, I was looking forward to this one.

On tap at Winking Lizard Crosswoods. Clear gold pour with a medium off-white head. Aroma of creamy malt, biscuit and a touch of citrus. Sweet and malty flavor with some bready character and a refreshing crisp citrus finish. Solid for the style.

tgncc (3100) - Bellmore, New York, USA - JAN 24, 2010
Aroma is bready, malty, vegetable. The appearance is orange/gold, white head, slightly hazy. The flavor is malt, bread and butter, actually more pleasant than the aroma. The mouthfeel is medium, even slightly thick bodied, creamy. The finish is light nobel hops. Decent for what it is. Especially as this style is not too common.

weitz15 (542) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 21, 2010
I was pleasantly surprised by this lager. Malty, bread-like, thick aroma, with a similar taste. The flavor is a combination of bread, malts, hops, and a hint of citrus.

JoeMcPhee (9325) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2010
Deep golden pour with a thick, sticky, white head. The nose is quite clean. A kiss of light pale malt and a bit of fairly prominent herbal hop aroma. A little bit of earthiness with a light metallic note (this fades with time). Nice, clean palate with a bit of soft sweet pale malt. Herbal hoppiness and a kiss of light lemon as well. Moderate bitterness. Fresh and quite tasty. It’s a pretty solid dortmunder.
