SpringsLicker (3681) - Tennessee, USA - OCT 26, 2015
Can from a mixed 12 pk in the local Kroger that had both cans and bottles.
Clear gold with a minimal white head.
Aroma of light grain. No hop aroma.
The flavor is lightly sweet, some light bitterness in the finish.
Decent but not a very good Dortmunder.

Suttree (6521) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 1, 2015
From a can. The cans were kind of wrinkled. The whole 6 pack actually. Weird. Clear gold, nice white head. Smells grainy, lightly sweet, and kind of peppery. Palate is a bit on the heavy, syrupy side. Taste is sweetish, grainy and toasty, and a peppery, grassy hop finish.

12 oz. can. Shiny golden with a nice bubble activity supporting a thin loose covering of bubbles on top. Nose is light citrus, toasted maize and dried grass. Tastes of maize, spicy dried grass and a touch of tart apple. Light body has a pleasant medium carbonation and a nice balance.

jcnielsen (3416) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - SEP 14, 2015
Can. Pours a yellow color with white head. Grainy, straw, slight earthy aromas. Straw, malty, earthy flavors. A bit thick for a helles, but good flavor.

altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - SEP 1, 2015
Can from Mills in Annapolis. Golden yellow body with thin head. Nose is malty, floral, toasty. Flavor is malty, lageresque with quite prickly texture and warming finish. Decent.

Zymurgeist2 (2385) - Redwood City, California, USA - AUG 2, 2015
From can to glass at the Rosedon in Bermuda. After waking up at 4:30 am, being delayed for 3 hrs in MIA.... I arrived at this great hotel and they now carry a non-macro. Drinking one poolside at 1 am before heading to bed. Score may be inflated - but the crisp grain pairs well with 80 degree humidity after a loooooong day.

rondphoto (4494) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUL 17, 2015
on tap @ Devil’s Backbone / Roseland VA --- Clear straw color, 1" white head, sheets of lace. Taste is clean light malt that turns to drying hops on the swallow. Mostly light bitters takes it the rest of the way. Unusual that it is lacking in carbonation. Otherwise, a nice, conventional, light brew.

hershiser2 (3696) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUL 12, 2015
On tap at the brewery.

Clear light golden. Smells, well, like lager. Taste is pleasant, light, and watery.

3.3
radagast83 (8507) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUN 26, 2015
About a 6oz golden pour, with a small white foamy head. Aroma was light crisp malts, light lemon notes, sweet bready character. Light straw, lemon. Pretty refreshing.

Had this at the brewery. Golden appearance and was a very smooth and delightful beer. It isnt too heavy or too light.
