Bottle courtesy of Styles. Aroma of corn and wheat more like a lager of sorts. Dark golden body with white disipating head. Flavor had a thicker body malt presence with the wheat flavor most dectectable. Easy on the palate with out a strong spicey bittering.

Bottle… Mostly clear yellow lager with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. Toffee, biscuit and grain aroma with a hint of lactic acid. Full-bodied with a heavy-cream mouthfeel and prickly carbonation. The flavor is remarkably well-balanced. Big time toffee and biscuit sweetness up front; followed closely by solid, minerally/grassy bitterness and a touch of acidity. Crisp, gently bitter finish. Bottle provided by Kevin Berry!

Quite a massive pils malt aroma for a lager with explosive bread in the nose, stuffy dough. Frankly, it does not promise to be too complex from the nose, but the aromas which are there are well presented, including a gentle grassiness from beautiful noble hops. In mouth though, you must be into sugariness to enjoy this as honeyed bread syrup dominates the portrait. It is very sweet, but thankfully fresh enough to remain drinkable. On the other hand, the fair alcohol presence detracts and you quickly wonder what’s the purpose for that beer which is more or less like drinking 3 diet cokes because they contain 1/3 the calories.

Pours golden with a fizzy white head. Heavy carbonation. Aroma is of cheap malt, spice, grain, and grass. Taste is really weak malt, spice, citrus, grain, and slight hops. Tastes earthy in a very bad way. Alcohol presence is not noticable. Not a good beer by any means. TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JAN 15, 2009
12 oz draft courtesy of Cardinal Liquors Singles Cooler (Frankfort, IL). Pours a really lightly hazed golden hue with a touch of orange and a moderate whit bubbly head that dissipates down to a small layer. Aromas are largely pilsner malt, a touch of funk and stink mixed with light European bittering hops and a nice graininess. Mediocre. Lacking hoppy presence. Initial is a touch strong on the alcohol, bitter up front with some pilsner malt action and alcohol. Finishes grainy and malty, with a subtle sweetness that smooths out the initial bitter that wasn’t very pleasant. Ehhh. Not a good tribute to 20 years.

Clear golden pour with a creamy white head. Malt, some floral/citrus hop, bready aroma. Flavor is similar, dominated by a bready malt. The hops really seem to have a tough time coming through. A fair amount of carbonation bordering on creamy. Finish pretty clean/dry. This is drinkable, but I think the regular dortmunder is better. fonefan (49548) - VestJylland, DENMARK - JAN 8, 2009
<b>Bottle 12fl.oz.</b>SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JAN 7, 2009
Clear medium orange color with a average to large, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, bread, toasted, light to moderate hoppy, orange, citrus. Flavor is moderate to light heavy sweet and bitter with a average to long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. 
<i>12oz bottle:</i> Solid gold pour with a solid cap of white foam. Strong aroma of dough, caramel corn and ether. More defined malts in the body - almost rye like with notes of baked bread, toffee. Hoppiness comes forth to balance the sweetness. Finishes surprisingly dry for such a malty beer. jvmiller (558) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - DEC 30, 2008
Way too lagery. Flavor of the lager yeast was too prevalent. Hop flavor was underplayed, malt sweetness overwhelmed the beer.Not too impressed overall. milljam (682) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 30, 2008
