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.

As FFF is my favorite brewery, I feel obliged to review their lager, Jinx Proof. It pours a light gold color with about a finger of white head. Pronounced hops for a lager, but this is a FFF signature. Good mouthfeel but a bitter finish. An easy drinker for a hot day, not the best, not the worst.
