JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2010
Deep golden pour with a thick, sticky, white head. The nose is quite clean. A kiss of light pale malt and a bit of fairly prominent herbal hop aroma. A little bit of earthiness with a light metallic note (this fades with time). Nice, clean palate with a bit of soft sweet pale malt. Herbal hoppiness and a kiss of light lemon as well. Moderate bitterness. Fresh and quite tasty. Its a pretty solid dortmunder.

blipp (8881) - La Mesa, California, USA - DEC 25, 2009
Bottle. Pours golden orange with a white head. Malty aroma with some bready and sweeter notes. The flavor has bready malt, not quite toasty, and a light sweetness. Pretty good.

Fevernova (222) - Willoughby, Ohio, USA - DEC 4, 2009

Pipper (325) - Ohio, USA - OCT 26, 2009
Donated by Thirsty Dog for ALS Beer Dinner Benefit. Pours a little lighter than their Lunar Lager with a small white head. A little grassy and yeasty but not as sweet as the Lunar which tends to be more maltier. Works nicely with a salad and fettunta.

Braudog (6582) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - OCT 25, 2009
Bottle. Orange-tinged golden beer with barely a head to speak of. The aroma is a bit tart. Indeed, the beer delivers with an odd tart fruitiness, yeasty, almost American wheat-like. (#3713, 10/25/2009)

kuphish (381) - Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA - OCT 18, 2009
Bottle courtesy of Eithcubes. Pours a small, foamy, white head. Clear, deep golden/light orange body. Rich malt aroma with some spicy and herbal hop undertones. Malt forward flavor - light biscuit and faint toast accompany the pale malt. Some musty wood and herbal notes from the hops. Medium bodied with average, pleasant carbonation. Clean, lightly bitter finish. This beer is overall very tasty and repeatable. Its just missing something intangible to put it over the edge for me.

Butters (4058) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - OCT 15, 2009
Bottle pours a near clear applejuice with quickfading off white head. Nose is yeasty and yogurty with a pungent grainy sweetness adds in the flavor. Ever so slightly grassy, and even a little lingering hop bitterness on the finish. Not horrible, but just a step up above a bud. Cute label though.

thehoff (598) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 12, 2009
Orange Amber fall like color. Very thin white head. Smells very sour, like yogurt, faint sweet malt. Very sour beer, dry, earthy. I almost find it to be like a gueze, maybe a flemish brown ale.

EithCubes (5772) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 6, 2009
Bottle. Sweet grass and grain aroma with off-pale malts and Teutonic spice. Gradient golden body with a large, loud whitish head. Malty body, some bread and pretzel, some cracker, touch of sweetness up front, but very little, and not dry enough to cause a stir. Lovely balance, a little mineral water but otherwise that magical, lick-smacking malt character. Faint grassy bitter hops. Medium body. Mild but long bitter aftertaste. This has everything I want from a Dortmunder, but its just a tad dirty; that is, it doesnt sparkle, it doesnt gleam, it just sort of hangs.
