Brewed in the style of Dortmund, Germany, this golden lager has a delicate caramel malt character, balanced by a light body and mild German noble hops, creating a crisp, refreshing finish.

Thin white head. Light yellow clear color. "Delicate" is the key to flavor. An ok beer but nothing to keep in the frig.

I’m underwhelmed. This beer, which was purchased in Warrenville, IL, while on a jaunt to Chicago, was something I hoped I’d enjoy. I was really psyched, in fact. Yet it’s so DRY and crisp and a tad metallic, and overly fizzy, that it reminds me of an Asahi Dry or a Sapporo. Sadly, such is the Dort/Helles style, and nothing can be done about it. I’ve never much liked the style.

Nothing better then having a beer at work on a Friday afternoon. Nice summer beer, the kind you want to enjoy on a beach.

Poured a clear golden yellow with just a light head around the edge of the glass. Sweet aroma with some caramel and honey.. intensified as it warmed. Flavor picked up some caramel and other sweet malts.. as well as some noble hops. Very crisp and clean on the palate. Smooth and tasty brew.

Bottle. Dated best by 11/22/05. Certainly pours nice. A helles kind of gold with a bit of depth in the glass. Very thin ring of foam left over. Nice blustery German beer smell. Taste is full of those light lager malts with a brush of Vienna, and a clean German hop profile. Not exceptional, but a fine summer brew that sticks to style.

12 oz bottle - poured golden with a white fluffy head. Aroma of sweet caramel malts. Flavor is quite sweet as well. Caramel and some light corn come through. On the palate this is light bodied and very drinkable. A good summer beer and quite true to the style.

Pour is a very cloudy yellow for a lager. Head is frigging huge! Aroma is a nice malt and hop mix. Flaovir is a citrusy and hop combo. The finish is nice and refreshing. A nice twist to the stayle and quite tasty.

Bottle: Hazy yellow, large white rocky head, nice lacing, soft carbonation.   Soft spicy/fruity nose very similar to the core of a kiwi, but not as sweet.   Tart on the tongue, spicy but not as much as the aroma.   Very light malt profile, a bit spritzy.   Average body and mouthfeel.   Finishes clean, crisp, and somewhat like an extremely weakened saison + gueuze.   Very different for a Helles, not as lagerish as I had expected, but tasty regardless.   Thanks Mike!

A golden/amber colored beer with lively effervescence and a creamy, white film for a head. Flowery hop aroma with some lemon and a mild touch of skunk that wasn’t bothersome. Saaz hops? Lightly bitter with a honey-sweetness to round out a very smooth beer.

very refreshing fruity lager. excellent balance between the malt and hops. this is actually one of the better two brother’s products that i have tried, although all have been decent.
