look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
Presentation: Typical GLB label containing a good deal of information on the beer including a small description, ABV info, and and Enjoy By date, cool and original label graphics, states that it is a GABF Gold Medal Winner, and info on the brewery. Neck label has a very nice description of the beer.
Appearance: I chose to pour this 12oz bottle into a 14oz Pokal glass. Dortmunder Gold pours out a clear golden amber with a 2 finger white foam head of a lighter density. Head retention was 4min 7sec and it never fully dissipated but faded into a thick foam coating which resulted in excellent lacing.
Smell/Aroma: Smells of sweet malts, slight wheat, and a slightly grassy earthy tones. Nice, Simple, and spot on aroma.
Flavor/Taste: Very malty flavor with hints of sweetness and the same earthy, wheaty, and grassy tones that are in the aroma. A wonderful grassy herbal hop bitterness hits the palette next followed up by malt sweetness on the back end.
MouthFeel/Drinkability: Medium bodied with an above average amount of carbonation. Smooth, crisp, and refreshing. Very drinkable.
Overall/Comments: Finally reviewing this after having many many times. Excellent in every aspect from. Great flavor, aroma, presentation, and mouth feel. Classified as Dortmunder/Export Lager at 5.8% ABV. Consumed 12-27-12.
Serving type: bottle
