Look - Pours very light blonde with fluffy white head/ Excellent distribution, very good retention. Good clinging. 4.5 paws.

Smell - Very light, touch of honey, blueberry, and dry biscuit. Honey being the dominant aroma with a tad of grassy hop character. 4 paws.

Taste - Bready biscuit of front with honey on the finish. Slight bit of lingering, steely bitterness that balances nicely with the light malt. 3.75 paws.

Feel - Very light but surprisingly creamy. Most of the tingle at the tip of the tongue. 4.25 paws.

Overall - Nice refreshing beer. My first dortmunder, it reminds me of a lot of European lagers I've had over the years. Nothing especially distinctive, but well executed. 4 paws.

If you enjoy a classic lager, you will enjoy this. However, it does not distinguish itself dramatically from a decent, cheaper, American version.

This bier hits the glass a surprisingly light shade of yellow and very clear in the body. The color is pretty much straw, maybe a little paler, and there is a 2-3 finger head that both retains and laces well. The scent and the taste meld into each other in this bier, starting with a a light malt scent with little to no hops on the nose and moving right into some great light malt flavors on the tongue. There is a touch of hops right after the malts in the flavor, but they are in the great German tradition of being subtle and balancing to the flavor. The traditional aftertaste of German beers is present in this beer, I believe from the usually hard German water. As far as feel goes, this beer is terrifically smooth and light on the palate with a great drinkability.

Overall, this beer is one of the many reasons that I love German lagers. Incredibly delicious, light and easy to drink, and smooth on the palate are just a few of the reasons that the Germans have their reputation for beer, and this beer is stellar on all counts.

Appearance: A beautiful thing. White, rocky, and chunky head with average retention but beautiful form. Crystal clear straw in color. Nice chunky lacing

Nose: White crackers and yeast. A bit of lemon at the end.

Taste: Very faint. There is a tiny bit of spice, alcohol, and crackers. This is exceptionally drinkable. It is very soft.
