12 oz bottle

Pours golden-yellow with a 1 inch head. Not very much lacing,( but I think that's consistent with a Dortmunder style? )

I can smell the malt but it's not overpowering

Taste's crisp and light

Perhaps a wee bit too much carbonation...

Overall, I think it is what it was supposed to be. They capture the Dortmunder style nicely...
Pairing this beer with some fresh Puget Sound Oysters made for an enjoyable experience. ( I read that this style of beer works well with shellfish and am happy to report this is true! )

It looks and smells like a refreshing light beer. It tastes about how you would expect, with a light, very slightly hoppy taste. It is not overly strong, but a smooth beer. It has a good after taste.

The Way Beer Is Supposed to Be

My next door neighbor just got a keggerator for his birthday. He gets 1/6 keg, but even then that's a lot for one guy. So he is very generous in sharing. I was looking forward to watching the Super Bowl in his mancave, and this is what was in the keggerator that night.

It was nice.

It's got a nice dark golden color, and it pours a decent head. You can see it bubbling up, and it's a got a great lager taste, not too strong, but definitely not too weak. It's not a heavy beer. It's light enough whereby two guys can make a pretty good dent in a 1/6 keg during a three and a half hour game.
