NosirIwont (2443) - Frederikssund, DENMARK - MAR 3, 2016
Bottle. 5.2%. Best before 09.04.16. As ’Švyturys Ekstra Draught Dortmunder’. Pours a slightly hazy, rather pale yellow, with a disappearing white head. Sweetish aroma with hay, light hops, light cereals, and a light cardboard note. Fruity and apple notes as it warms. Flavour is sweetish with an apple note and light hops, and is slightly fat with a grainy hint. Same finish, though a bit more grainy here, and with a hint of a milky note. Meh. 03.03.16.

harrisoni (17820) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2016
Bottle from Prince International Supermarket, Ashford. Pale gold lasting white head. Aroma reminds me of continental lagers I had when a child. EVen some lemon on the aroma. First beer of the day always tastes good. This has a little syrupy malt. But otherwise it’s clean, lemony and perfectly fine.

ManVsBeer (9432) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2016
Bottle from Continental Food Store, Wakefield. Golden-yellow with an extremely thin head. Has an ordinary lager nose, and similar in taste, although it has an easy-drinking texture for its strength.

Aromat słodowy. Piana średniopęcherzykowa, nawet trwała. Barwa jasno złota. W smaku pełne, lekko słodkie. Wysokie nasycenie, goryczka niska. Ogólnie nic szczególnego, ale też da się wypić.

GoufCustom (1872) - HONG KONG - OCT 3, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2015

500 ml bottle bought at The magstore at Nathan Road, Jordan.

Pale golden colour; One finger head and white foam which lasts for 90 seconds; Poor sticky lacing with active carbonation; Pungent smell of malt, with floral, grains, light honey, faint wet cardboard, bread, lemon and grass; Medium sweet taste of moderate malt, with strong grains, floral, molasses, bread, lemon, light bitter hops and grass; Close to light body. Thin but quite slick palate; Mouth feel is lager maltyness - better than most Macro Pales - in a light background. Otherwise tastes more like a jacked-up Lager - floral, fair sweetness, bread and lemon - lacking the fullness and cookie-ness of typical Dortmunder somewhat. So-so… Hoppiness is floral, honey, lemon and grass in nose and somewhat stronger in taste. Bitterness is light for a lasting, low-fi astringent sweet grainy finish; Fairly dry after taste. Easy and sweet-malty to mouth.

Comments: The original Ekstra I had last year was so impressive and nice so I can’t believe this Draught turns out so flat and disappointing – leaner maltyness, strong grainy presence, poor looks and heads. More of a Premium Lager / Pale Lager hybrid than a usual Dortmunder or Helles, I will go back to the original Ekstra if I need one. Skip this one.
