Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: MasterSki on 07-12-2012

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Pale in color with a spicy nose, bready malt body, and noble hop notes throughout, this Dortmunder-style lager is just the thing to slake one’s thirst.

Enjoyed at the brewery.

A: single finger thick head with excellent retention on clear golden body. Scattered lacing.

S: full pale malts, sweet honey, light grains. As good as can be expected for te style.

T: pale and bready malts, noble pils bitterness, light honey sweetness and herbal hop notes late in the finish.

M: light to medium body and moderate to high carbonation.

Overall: flavorful and complex for the style certainly. Not really a genre I would want to have regularly but still not a bad brew. (511 characters)

On tap at FFF.
Served in a stein.

dry, crisp, and refreshing. Mildly bitter. Dry grainy malt has some biscuity notes underneath a pretty large bready character.

Light, easy-drinking body with plenty of carbonation.

There's not a whole lot going on here, but I can understand the style is not meant to overwhelm me-- in all honesty, this beer is allright. I prefer 2Bros Dortmunder to this one, though I'm happy to sip this here. (435 characters)

Had this on tap Christmas eve at Three Floyds.

Served in an imperial pint.

A: Poured a crystal clear, soft orange color, with ever the slightest chill haze, and about a 1.5 finger head.

S: Up front, I got some melted orange popsicle, FFF signature hop profile, along with a really nice hop-yeast combo/duo.

T: I tasted a good bit of booze actually an this totally took me aback. However, this was of the candy-coated variety that Floyds does so well. Lots of Germanic (Saaz?) hops along with a bitter finish.

M: Like I said, this was boozier than I was expecting, or should I just say that that was just the breath of alcohol warming poking through? No matter. Bubbly as hell and lots of lacing.

O: I chugged this one pretty quick, so thumbs up in my book! (762 characters)

On-tap at 3 Floyds. Served in a stein.

A - White foam settles to a thick collar, partial cap, and bit of lacing. Transparent golden straw body.

S - Cereal grains, bready malts, spicy noble hops, and some fruity notes as well. It's got that lager 'twang' to it.

T - The taste is again heavy on the bready malts, with fruity accents and some honey malt sweetness. Fairly low hop flavor and bitterness.

M - Pleasant active carbonation, medium-light body, creamy texture, and a dry, crisp, finish.

D - Pretty much what you'd expect from this style, but not really much else to say here. If you're in a German mood, or at FFF with a colleague who only drinks lager, this is a solid choice. However, there are about 10 other beers I'd pick before this one. (755 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Served in a stein.

A - Pale, straw yellow with a nice one finger head. As you'd expect for the style, it appears a bit thin

S - Light straw and noble hops with a slight bready malt

T - Sweet, bready malt up front with a nice light noble hop kick in the middle. The finish is straw and light noble hops. The strong hops add a nice twist to make this a good beer in what can be an otherwise bland style

MF - Medium carbonation that gives a smooth and surprisingly full mouthfeel. I did not expect this to be as a smooth as this one was. A pleasant surprise

O - Leave it to FFF to put a nice twist on an otherwise normal style. Has a nice balance between sweet, bready malt and a slight hoppy kick. (704 characters)
