Dundee Pale Ale
From Oct 2005 Poured from the bottle a good amber colour with a nice head that settled into a 1/4"layer that stayed for the entire session. The taste is very malty/grainy with just a smidgeon of hops in the background and, another plus in my book is that the carbonation is not overly done. The bottle says "Full Flavor" and it certainly is that. For me, this Pale worked and is very drinkable especially considering that I got the 6 pack for US$4.99. Great value for the money, imho.

Dundee Original Honey Brown Lager
(Dundee) honey brown original lager 3/1016 Sweet with honey notes. More of a malt taste. hardly no hop notes. bland and boring. No mention of Dundee except in the fine print ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dundee Pilsner
A Very basic very boring Pilsner. Notes of lemon with a doughy aftertaste. Somewhat astringent. Not bad but it's certainly nothing special. Second tasting still not that keen on it but I thought it tasted much better after it sat and warmed up a bit ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

May 2016. Now seems Just thin and boring. A lackluster beer that brings nothing special to the table. Carbonation lingers on the tongue with an odd metallic aftertaste. Original assessment: A decent little beer from a big company. Nicely balanced. Nothing spectacular but Very drinkable and enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dundee Original Honey Brown Lager
Bottle at home in Salisbury. Pours clear honey-gold with a creamy, white head. Effervescent. The aroma holds lightly toasted biscuits, cereal, bread. Medium sweet flavour with a bit of sugary honey, some toffee, more lightly toasted bread, crispy cereal. Light bodied with average, massaging carbonation. Sugary finish, with more honey, very simple bready malts, some caramel, minimal bitterness. Quite simple and sweet overall.

Dundee Original Honey Brown Lager
30pk for $9.99 on sale. Nice appearance, white big head.. amber color. Smell is pretty neutral.. like a sweeter macro, but not a funky or artificial sweet. Taste is not bad.. honey sweetness is definitely there, not overly malty. A little too thick for a cheap beer, but I like it.

12 oz bottle (courtesy of Headbanger) poured into an English Pint at 44°. Color is a deep golden with a slight haze. Carbonation is good with a with a tight off white head. Aroma toffee and crystal malt. It has a light body with a smooth mouth feel. Flavor comes in with caramel then a mild bitterness and a faint hop spice. Overall it’s not bad, a little bland and just not much going on.

Dundee Pilsner
12oz bottle (courtesy of Headbanger) poured into a Footed Pilsner at 44°. Color is a bright gold with a very slight haze and mellow carbonation that gives it a thin white head. Aroma is light grains leaning to corn and a touch of hop spice in the background. It has a lighter body with a smooth mouth feel. Flavor is creamed corn back by a very light bitterness and just a hint of hop spice. Aftertaste is clean, almost dry. Overall if you have to drink a Pilsner this one is pretty good.

Dundee Original Honey Brown Lager
Bottle into pint glass, clear brown-hued golden color with white head. Aroma notes of malty caramel, some toast and nuttiness. Taste adds some honey sweetness. Light body, moderate carbonation, tad sticky, crisp with clean sweeter finish. Honestly a pretty solid vienna, a boring caramel lager.

A clear copper colored beer with light pine hops. Creamy, mild bitterness, More an English style IPA than the much better (IMO) Left Coast Uber hopped IPA style.

Dundee Nut Brown Ale
Dark brown color, sweet malty aroma. Very sweet & malty with caramel has a tangy, mineral salt follow. As with the other offerings by Dundee, this is just middle of the road.

Dundee Pale Ale
Poured from a 12oz. bottle. Appearance: Copper colored, murky body with a 1 finger head that dissipates fast. Smell: Aromatic, mild hoppiness that hints of bitterness. Taste: Small bitterness hits, hints of hops with a resin, pine-like aftertaste. Mouthfeel: More pine followed by woody taste but also a little bit watery at the end. Not much more. Drinkability: I found it was kind of a 1-note beer, not very complex & lacked a hop bite to it. Not tedious but not an eventful tasting either.

Clear copper color with a taller off-white head. Scents of flour, dough, flowers and metal. Mix of dough, toasted malt not quite ripe berries and hazelnuts. Light acidity and a touch acetic. A sourdough amber, blah. 1/14

Dundee Original Honey Brown Lager
Bottle from the local corner convenience store. Pours an amber-copper. Thin & watery body. Not much of a head. Taste was like copper/metallic, with some bread, maltiness, raisins?, and a hint of sweet honey. Palate was also metallic and bitter, with a slight honey flavor. Overall it was like drinking a cheap malt liquor that had caramel coloring added and a bit of sweetness. Also gave me a headache (after two bottles). But only $5.99 a six pack, so just had to try. What’s funny is it says on the label "Extra Rich". Lol! Are you kidding me!? Extra Rich, yeah, maybe in FORMALDEHYDE! The only mouth this piss should be poured down is the mouth of your toilet! Made me sick as a dog.

A brew to liven up your nostrils, sweet and flowery that turns to a rust and honey. Not as bitter as I expected, the bitterness lingers late and tingles. So much flavour. Beautifully well rounded, an umami of hops, malt, pepper, berries. This is a great beer.
