660ml green bottle. Bavaria Footed Lager glass. Pale gold color, crystal clear appearance. White froth, close & slowly dissipated crown. Slight sulfurous aromas, hints of honey, grainy & floral notes rounded by very subtle spicy, low DMS odors. Sweet & malty upfront followed by gentle earthy bitterness. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Well balanced malts & hops in the middle lingers into a dried finish. Sweet herbal hues on the aftertaste. Nice spot of the Dortmünder Style!!

Sampling right now on 1/31/14. 330ml (11.2 oz.) bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a classic pilsner flute.

Pours a clear yellow with a super thin white head. Some spotty lacing was seen. The aroma is of grassy malts mostly with a light sweet candy detection as well. A light 'slunky' smell was noted, which is COMMON from beers in green bottle for some reason. The taste is slightly watered-down and thin with the malt coming through mostly. No bitter or harsh finish though. Overall, I thought it was a decent brew.
