look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A- Pale straw with a fluffy white head. Head retention is very good, and teh lacing clumps in rings with each sip.

S- Grains, honey.

T- cereal grains with more honey. makes me think of honey-nut cheerios. The finish shows some strong notes of corn.

M- light bodied, but slightly creamy with light, gentle carbonation. It is slightly sticky.

O- Not what I was expecting at all. Try it.

3.63/5  rDev +2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

The colour is yellow (5 EBC), the liquid clear. The high yellowish head is quite firm, it sinks slowly leaving some lacing.

The smell is fresh with an anonymous bitterness. Flowery hops and a smooth sweetness. Hints of bread.

The taste is quite light and very clean. Passing notes of bread and malt. Some flowery hops. Medium body. Somewhat tart bitter notes in the aftertaste. Bread. Medium bitterness. Clean and tidy. Long bitterness in the finish.

The carbonation is strong, the small bubbles short-lived. The liquid is mid-smooth.

This one just slides down the throat. The Germans know how to brew a clean lager, for shure.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours clear golden with a large thick whipped-cream-like white head. Slow dissipation leaves rich lacings.

S: Rich malt, bready and semi-sweet. A little bitter hops in the back. Fresh-smelling.

T: Rich bready malt, a bit sweet. Some citric notes and bitter hops. Well balanced.

M: Aftertaste holds a little bitterness, but doesn't last for very long. Body is medium while carbonation is strong but smooth, small bubbles.

O: This is a nice Dortmunder with a little of everything. Not bad at all!

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

A: Poured from a bottle to a pilsner glass. Had a golden yellow color and a clear texture. There was an inch and a half of foamy, fairly long-lasting head. Average lacing.

S: A somewhat skunky smell, along with a lot of malt. Not overly appealing.

T: Tasted pretty much like it smelled: A lot of malt, a tinge of hops, and a slightly skunky aspect. A very bland, almost watery flavor. Not well constructed.

M: A decent amount of carbonation with a smooth finish. Light-bodied.

O: On the whole, this is an average, undistinguished Euro lager. Very forgettable.

I poured this smelly beer into my tumbler at 45 degrees. The beer was dark blond and the beer poured a big white head. However that head went away fast. The beer had a real pop to it when opened. The beer was really stinky smelling not typical skunk smell but just stunk. Beer was a little sweet tasting had good lacing also. Besides the smell I would buy again.
