3.5/5  rDev +6.4%

Light yellow, golden color. 2 finger head that disappears in a couple of minutes. Lacing stays. Smells to me mostly like a typical, average lager- you can detect the hops. The main difference in smell was it was slight fruity- perhaps citrus. Thin to medium body. Good carbonation. Taste- it had a slight sweetness, slight grapefruit, and hops. Near end, bitterness of hops shows itself more, becomes strong, then fades to a slight bitter aftertaste. Quite refreshing. My first Dortmunder. Had the qualities of a Dortmunder: Clean, dry, very slight aromatic aroma.

3.08/5  rDev -6.4%

500mL can. Brew date: June 5, 2011; best by date Sept. 5, 2012. 5.3% ABV, 12.2 degrees Plato. Bought in Jusco spuermarket, Qingdao, China.

Appearance: Light gold color, very clear. About one finger of dense, off-white foam. Good head retention. Tiny bits of lacing distributed all around the glass.

Smell: Fresh cut grass, bread, slight citrus aroma.

Taste: Quite a nice hops bite, which builds for a few seconds before fading. Not much malt flavor.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied. Good level of carbonation, enough to tickle the palate. Long lingering fading bitterness in the aftertaste. Very dry finish.

Overall: Very refreshing, but the flavor is kind of a one-note. Not a complicated beer, but I will have it again.
