This is by far the best lager I have ever experienced. Taste, 24 carat gold appearance, smell are all beyond compare!

A- nice big frothy bone white head. Lasted a good bit. Very little/light lacing. Lots of bubbles. Clear honey gold hue. Ultra pleasing to the eye.

S- clean, malty, hoppy. All the pleasant aromas I expect and enjoy when visiting a brewery.

T- lots of malts up front, followed by nice hop bitterness.

M- crisp, medium to full body.

O- an excellent lager. Very well balanced. Loads of character all around. Would definitely have again and recommend.

Cheers!

Love GLBC and this beer is critically acclaimed world wide, but it's just very underwhelming to me.

Truly Exceptional Balanced Lager....Many Lagers simply are not that good...many are dull/boring, not very clean/ refreshing etc. The Dortmunder styles are underrated imo...

This one is just very Clean/Refreshing and added richer Biscuit/malty character really is tasty, gets into/more like how a Lager should be like xD
