Pours golden (obviously) with a small head and heavy carbonation. Taste is light, crisp, and malty. Low hops. Slight fruit aftertaste. A great summertime beer. IndianaRed (4610) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 5, 2004
Bottle Pours a a slightly hazy light golden amber with a good foamy white head. Aroma is a light fresh smelling grain, apple cider, and yeast with an easy hops trace. Flavor is slightly sweet, bready and the slightly higer ABV is noticeable. Feel is very light and crisp and the finish is quick, clean with just a hint of hops. Very nice refreshing, light brew. sfontain (851) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 4, 2004
Light red with a great, huge, chunky, disappearing head. Aroma a bit weak with light malts and a little citrus. Flavor is lightly sweet, fruity malts, matched up with a solidly hoppy finish. Feels both clean and silky, yet not sticky; nice. Tasty. awaller05 (305) - Sharon, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 26, 2004
sweet smell as it was poured, nice golden hue with a decent size head. Just enough hops to keep the malt at bay. Would recommend this beer to people dp (608) - uniontown, Ohio, USA - AUG 22, 2004
At a steak chain. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this beer. Will order again and again.

First Dortmunder, I think. I was surprised that I liked this golden beer. Lots of malt, which I’m not ordinarily a huge fan of. I think I’ll check out some more German styles after this one. MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 20, 2004
Clear deep golden in color with a decent white foamy head that leaves good lacing in my glass. Bready and flowery aromas, nice bready and grainy flavors, medium bodied, nice smooth mouthfeel, finishes clean and dry, very tasty and drinkable, this is an awesome brew.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2015 By a long shot, the best Dortmunder I’ve sampled. Excellent color and head make this a very beautiful beer. Nose is the weak point, but the flavor is also great. A very clean, refreshing, and surprisingly good brew. garrison (812) - Cin. city, Ohio, USA - AUG 11, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2004 From a bottle - This poured a rapidly diminishing white gead of foam atop a rather dark amber body that smelled slightly of malt and grain. The taste, however, was truely upper-class, especially for a lager, and Irecommend this beer. AlabastorJones (814) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 31, 2004
It’s not that there’s a bad aroma, there just isn’t one at all, lots of sediment that you can even see through the bottle, it looks like sea monkeys bathing in gold, creamy mouthfeel, one of the better light beers I’ve had recently.
