2.55/5 rDev -20.6%
A straw colored beer, a white small head, no lacing, no curtains.
Sweet smell of apples an lemon.
Sweet white bread, lemonade, some apple peel.
Medium high carbonation, soft small bubbles, a light dry finish.
A bit too sweet, reminds of euro pale lager.

From Kansas City Restaurant
Appearance: It has a golden colored body. The white head and lace are rocky and spread out.
Smell: It has a very corny aroma with a little hint of bread and faint hops.
Taste: Also corny and metallic with bread dough flavors. It has a bit of a crisp bitterness in the end.
Mouthfeel: Very thin and light.
Overall: Alright for sampling it isn’t something I would just order

From 10/22/11 notes. On tap at the DC location.
a - Pours a clear, pale yellow color with one inch of white head and low carbonation evident.
s - Smells of grain, corn, wheat, and some pale bready malts. Lightly sweet but not a ton going on.
t - Tastes of grains, corn, and bready malts. Pretty average and a bit of a step down from the nose.
m - Light mody and low to moderate carbonation.
o - Overall a pretty average lager. Lots of that grain and corn in the nose and taste. Not bad at all, but pretty average. Would suggest trying one of their other beers.

Starts with a decent sized head for a bar pour. This dies to a minute level of fine bubbles that leave only a couple of spots. Very clear with a pretty golden color.
Smells soapy, this happened two days ago as well. They need to do a better job rinsing their glasses. When I reinvigorate the head, I smell a good pale malt baseand a faint floral aroma of hop.
Initial mpression is a cross between unmalted and malted pale grains. Relatively thin, but the aftertaste has a touch of bitterness that brings some good balance. Overall, I'd say this is a true to style Dortmunder. The taste provides a nice recovery from the poor handling of the glassware.

Had the Golden Export at the G & B in Bolingbrook, IL last evening. The color was a clear yellow with white head that laced slightly. The aroma was common of dortmunder grain, Saaz hops, etc. The first taste was overpowering with grain and was a bit rough, but the following drinks were more smooth. The grain and malt was balanced with hops and the beer came off the pallet clean. Overall not to bad...the mouthfeel was smooth and easy. good session beer.

First had: on tap at Gordon Biersch, Broomfield, CO
Poured a golden-yellow with a small fizzy white head that fizzled out rather quickly. Grainy aroma, with a light citrusy hop profile. Simple taste, nothing too interesting happening. Lightly toasted grains and light citrus and piney hops, leaving a somewhat bitter aftertaste. Balanced, but just too light for me. Drinkable if you're playing it conservative.

Aroma of noble hops w some malt. Golden straw color, very clear. Mild hop bitterness, with mellow malt. Overall, good session beer, but a bit thin for my pallet. Restaurant setting w a nice outdoor seating area. Food caters to the masses, as does the beer.

Poured from a tap into a .5L glass at Gordon Biersch (San Diego). Missed seeing the pour, but when it arrived there was about a ¼-inch of film. Color looked honey golden with a small hint of orange.
Nothing too special about the smell, maybe even a bit skunky. Pretty plain if anything.
Clean and refreshing taste. Malty. Better than the smell.
Pretty high on the carbonation. Bitter, but the freshness makes it easy to drink.
Not a bad beer overall, which is surprising considering their other beers. I would order this again, especially at GB considering their other options. Good beer for the summer.

Poured a medium golden color with a small amount of white head. Not a lot going with the smell but do get a bit of malt and hops. Taste is similar to the smell, nothing much but very clean. Medium carbonation and really easy to drink. Had this as well as a couple other beers at Gordon Biersch. Not great but not bad either.

Sampled at Gordon Biersch restaurant in Dallas, TX. Pours light-golden hue. Aroma is of hops and some biscuit malt. Body is medium, crisp. Piny hops and biscuit malt are balanced on the palate. Long, dry finish. On the whole, it is nice Helles lager.

Reviewed from notes. On tap at the DC location.
Pours a moderate golden-yellow color with a white head. Several fingers at first but falls down a bit quickly. A few rings of head remain throughout. The nose is some light hops along with a bit of grain. Taste is grainy and hoppy with a bit of bitterness from the grain husk.
Feel is really nice and crisp. Drinks well in the summer. A style I'd like to see more of and this one is pretty well done.
