Dortmunder? 3F's claims it's a pils and the aroma has me thinking Czech was the aim. Here we go:
Couldn't be less impressed with the appearance. Zero head and fizzy bubbles feed upward. The body is too orange to resemble either the Bohemian or Bavarian takes on the style.
Aroma betrays the floral Saaz hops but there's something else along for the ride; smells like the Floyds' Amarillo fetish found its way into this one...
...Yup. Grapefruit is a weird addition to the classic noble hops. Not a disaster, per se, but not what I hope for in my favorite style of lager. Malt body is sufficient but doesn't do enough to highlight the profile of the hops.
Decent, spritzy mouthfeel but just not light enough for my taste. An easy-to-drink beer, but there are better options for this style. Easily the least impressive beer to come out of Munster.

Pours a nice mellow yellow complexion, with substantial head of foamy white bubbles. Very fine tree-line lace.
Nose is creamy malts with ample hop presence, though, too. Nice.
Taste is very much akin to a traditional lager, with a dialed-up citrus hops tone. Very flavorful, while remaining true to the lager style. Well tasty and worthy of repeat purchase.

From bottle to nonic pint. Bottled 12/28/2013.
A. Pours a mostly clear, straw gold color. Very slightly cloudy and with a half finger of plain white head. Lacing is tight and consistent.
S. Biscuit, lavender, grass, honey, light pine.
T. Mild pineapple sweetness/tropical notes, zesty herbs, cracker, grass and pine on the finish.
M. It starts with some light, tropical, sweet hop notes, then fades into a malty breadiness with some darker fruit flavors, then with a high dry finish with some pine bitterness. It's crisp, but not necessarily light...I'd say light-moderate bodied, with flavor sufficient to chew on a bit but not moving it completely out of the "refreshing" category.
O. This is a very very very good Dortmunder. A little too sweet and tropical for the style, but very enjoyable nonetheless. Provides a flavorful experience and satisfying dry finish while still being reasonably light on its feet. If you're someone who appreciates the lager side of the beer spectrum, this should be on your wish list. One of the better American Dortmunders out there.
