L: Pours brilliant gold under a 2” long lasting white foam collar that grips the side of the glass.
S: Big bread aromas, medium low noble hops, lightly sweet grain, very faint sulfur.
T: Drinks smooth and crisp with a balance between malt and hops that produces spicy bread flavors. No fruit or movie popcorn butter flavors, but has a slight mineral character that is not overbearing and helps emphasize the hops.
F: Medium body and carbonation.
O: An easy to drink beer that is very balanced and smooth with a firm malt body.

This is an almost colorless, crystal clear beer with a glowing golden hue. It easily supports a thick, spongy, white head. The aroma is faint but unfortunately soapy. The flavor is light and bready, with a slight grain mustiness that reminds me of mushrooms. I guess this is typical of the style, and I'd like to try it with mushroom pizza. The finish is faintly metallic and hoppy.

The mouthfeel is very interesting, it is light but has a kind of syrupy-buttery-melts-in-the-mouth quality where it gradually gets heavier. I like it. This is a very drinkable beer but I'm just not in love with this style.

Clear golden color with white head. Aroma has sweet malts and grains, very clean overall. Taste starts also slightly sweet and grainy, gets more bitter and hoppy towards the finish and lingers dry on the aftertaste. Medium body and carbonation. Very clean and easy drinking overall but lacks some character.

I'm likin' the Dortmunders a lot, and this is a good example. Much more noticeable malt flavor than a pale American lager, just a little more taste of German hops. Very drinkable, but too tempting to slam one down, especially after an evening spent cooking chile pork stew for the homebrew club picnic!

What can I say The first thing that came to mind was a strong Heiniken the taste was similer but body and mouthfeel a little firmer. Still I would take this over Heiniken any day this was my first Dortmunder Export and I would love to try others and compair. All in all not bad I'll have another.
