My first Dortmund style lager.

Pours with about one finger thick white colored head that persists really well. Extremely clear light golden color. Some bubbles and very good lacing.

Malts and some noble hops. Faint aroma overall. Grainy character and some sweetness.

A very well balanced malt and hop flavor. Refreshing without being overtly effervescent. Neither the hops nor the malts dominate, providing a bland taste. Some sweetness upfront but then followed by noble hops that wipe the feel out. Very mild bitter dry finish.

Mouth feel: Slightly light to medium feel. Crisp and easy drinking. Lower than moderate carbonation. Very smooth. Quite session-able.

A decent representative of the style i guess. Better than American adjunct lagers. Very drinkable. Really nothing wrong with the beer.

Thanks to the creator of the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a bright golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of grains, malts, some sweetness. Taste is crisp, malts, some grains, very refreshing. Feels mediu, bodied in trhe mouth and overall this makes a fine session beer.
