Pours a clear, copper color. 1/3 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of pale malt, sweet malt, slight hops, and slight yeast. Fits the style of a Dortmunder / Export Lager. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of pale malt, sweet malt, hint of wheat, slight hops, slight biscuit, and slight yeast. Overall, good appearance, aroma, body, and blend. One of the better Dortmunders I've ever had.

Thanks to Matt for the bottle!

First off, I'll just say that I am not a big fan of lagers at all. I like a good schwarzbier once in a while, but that's about it. This bottle was kept cold, but was just over 3 months old. I decided to go for it anyway, keeping my expectations low.

Hazy orange-amber pour into a FFF teku, topped with a small white head that held at a medium collar and laced the glass nicely. The aroma was a bit off-putting at first, sort of stale, lager yeast, floral notes, toasted grains. I warmed up to it eventually. Taste...was actually surprisingly pretty good! Toasted grains, floral hops that were still pretty crisp and fresh, some leafy tea flavor as well. That's about all I can say about it. Pretty simple, pretty good. Crisp, dry mouthfeel, medium body.

After the thoroughly disappointing Dissenter, this was a pleasant surprise. I really was just planning to take a sip and dump this, clearing up some room in the fridge, but darn it, I drank the whole thing and enjoyed it. I gotta say, this is honestly one of the best lagers I've had.
