Cereal malt nose with a little hoppy pine. Cloudy reddish golden with thick, white foam. More bitterness in the taste, but the malt dominates with a slightly crisp finish. Light / medium body with moderate fizz.

12oz can. 8/13/16 best by date. Appearance: Light golden, crystal clear, with small whit head that dissipates quickly. Aroma: Bready, light caramel maltiness, with a touch of floral hops. Taste: Light bready maltiness with the slightest touch of caramel and a moderately strong herbal hop bitterness. Also has some light diacetyl reminiscent of a Czech pils. Mouthfeel: Medium body for style, with a moderately high, crisp carbonation. Finish: Some lingering buttery diacetyl, and a touch of herbal hops. Overall: A crisp, well balanced, refreshing take on a Dormunder. Diacetyl is probably a bit too strong for the style

AbbeyRoade (534) - Missouri, USA - SEP 15, 2015
Pretty good balance of crisp cereal lager flavors and caramel malts. Refreshing and easily sessionable. Light body. Hops are mild and add a good equilibrating kick.

chinchill (4337) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 13, 2015
Poured from a 12 oz. can into a Fat Cat pint glass. BB date on the bottom of the can of Sept. 2015. Appearance: Pours clear straw-golden color with lots of rising carbonation bubbles. Well proportioned frothy head has good retention and leaves a decent lacing. Smell: Bready with earthy and herbal hop notes. Taste: Lightly sweet malt base with notes of citrus and earthy hops. Mouthfeel: Light-medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Crisp with some dryness in the finish. Overall: Not bad but not worth seeking out.

A unique style that almost a masks an otherwise cheap beer taste. Just enough flavor to keep it interesting but not a good enough taste to make this a return on investment. Grab a bud light or whatever other cheap beer you're willing to drink. Worth a try and then never again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
