Had a bottle at Glocke Backpackers.

Poured from a green bottle with a pull-off top (sweet). Not bad for washing down German/Swiss grub, but otherwise it's just a mostly harmless Euro lager. There's a sizeable cheap lager tang, like Heineken but magnified. Otherwise there's a hint of malts and enough balancing bitterness to keep this drinkable.

Drank a liter of this on a sunny day, standing on the terrace of Mountain Hostel in Gimmelwald, Switzerland that has a fantastic view of the Swiss Alps. I had just spent the day hiking in the Alps. Served off the tap from the hostel bar into a Rugenbräu dimpled mug.

Very crisp smelling pale lager with a good bit of noble hops in the nose accompanied by a bit of the typical lager mild sweetness, appearing with a clear straw-coloured body with a nice fluffy head that leaves sticky thick lacing on the mug. The flavour itself is primarily a crisp, faint lemony sweetness accompanied by a nice noble hop presence, and not much else. The body is thin but feels crisp and refreshing. Leaves a smooth, mildly sweet, hallertau-hoppy aftertaste that is pleasing and refreshing.

Overall, not a particularly incredible lager, but in this atmosphere of standing on a terrace on the other side of the valley looking at the Jungfrau peak and the snow-covered Swiss Alps on a sunny summer day, this was a perfect beer that was refreshing after hiking most of the day away.

500ml can served in a thumbler glass.

A: Pours a light and absolutely clear yellow color forming a big, aired and soapy head. Good head retention and lots of lacings left around in the glass

S: Very malty in the nose. Absolutely low fermentation German style Lager. Bread and biscuity with nice notes of flowery hops

T: Slightly sweet upfront. Very malty and crispy. Strong notes of sweet pale grains. A bit ashy and some notes of honey too. Smooth hoppy end. Nice and mild hops bitterness

M: Very light body. Good carbonation. Extremely refreshing beer. Aftertaste is biscuity and bready

O: Excellent drinkability. A simple but pleasant German style Lager. By the way, much more to a Dortmunder than to a simple Euro Lager
