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
