4.51/5  rDev +10.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Rich golden body sits below a hefty white head. Thin, yet substansial lace for quite some time.

Smell: Sweet and yeasty.

Taste: Perfectly balanced. Great hit of bready malts right off of the bat. The grains are sweet but not overwhelming. Hops even out the creamy malts and add a perfect amount of bitter flavor. Great mouthfeel. Medium bodied and incredibly crisp. Goes down very easily... possibly too easily (if there is such a thing).

Overall: A great example of the style. Dare I say the "end all" to Dortmunders? Perhaps, it is certainly my personal favorite of the style. Recommend to any and all!

Serving type: bottle

Ah, Dortmunder export, one of the vague styles. This one pours out a reddish-orange colored beer with a nice large head. The heavy malt aroma doesn't really go with the style, but it does smell nice. Flavor has a strong malt presence with only slight hop bitterness. Malt is a touch grainy, though not too much. Good body and mouthfeel, which is appropriate for a strong export.
