fiulijn (21019) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 1, 2010
Draught at Rattle ’n Hum, New York
Amber color. Light caramel aroma, dusty. Dry caramel flavor, an impression of honey. The final is lightly sweet. Simple.

Oakes (18594) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 4, 2009
Bright amber. Big malty, full bready aroma is really authentic and appetizing. Creamy body has a bready bitterness. Good stuff.

Dogbrick (13564) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 30, 2009
Sample at Brew Kettle: The beer is a lightly hazy dark amber color with a thin off-white head that recedes quickly. Stringy lacing on the glass. The aroma is faintly sweet malt and grassy hops. Light body with grainy malt and light hops flavors. The finish is sweet and malty with a short mild hops aftertaste. Very run-of-the-mill overall.

hopdog (12953) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 30, 2008
On tap at The Drafting Room in Springhouse, PA. Poured a medium amber color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of grains, lots of grainines, some toasted grains, and caramel. Tastes of the same toasted grains, with caramel and toffee. Thin all the way around and just all around dissapointing.

JaBier (8178) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - APR 4, 2011
Sample at Buckeye Beer Engine on 3/26/11. Clear amber pour with a medium off-white head. Bready munich malt aroma with some noble hops. Textbook dortmunder with munich malt flavor with noble hop crispness.

egajdzis (6709) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2009
Poured a dark golden color with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of toasted dough, grains, citrus fruits, and light caramel. Taste of toast, toffee, earth, light citrus, and a dry finish.

nearbeer (5565) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 16, 2008
Draft, JLS at Barleys. Clear golden-bronze with just a spit of foam. Aroma is grain, honey and light alcohol. Flavor is the same, with some toasted nut and light berry. Light-medium body is just barely to the dry side. Seems like this one kind of lost its character by being undecided about whether to be a helles or a dunkler.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - DEC 25, 2008
Tap @ Bittercreek AleHouse Boise: Pours an amber color with a light head and moderate lacing. the nose is fruity and light with an up front grape and fig note. The flavor is chewy, malty with little to no biscuit and a predominate grape and hop accent note towards the tail. Quaffable and drinkable, but nothing outstanding. A decent lager with a sweeter appeal.

Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 2, 2009
Draught, Brick Store. Clear amber. Thick, even white head. Aroma of Munich authenticity: sweet fresh grain leaping from the glass. However, the thin body is disappointing in comparison. Finishes with a nice sweetness and is overall not bad.
