Poured from a green 12 oz. bottle. Has a light golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of grains, malts. Taste is crisp, malts, grains, a bit on the sweet side, very easy drinking. Feels light in the mouth and overall is a decent beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: pale golden/straw; medium frothy white head, decent lacing

Smell: malt with light hops and citrus; reminds me of a Radler in aroma

Taste: Juicy malt on the sweeter side; light hops, but just enough to balance the sweetness; clean and crisp; nothing special, but a decent brew for a hot day

Mouthfeel: medium body, slightly creamy

Remarks: Gift from a friend of my wife; pretty pleased overall

Poured from 12oz green bottle into a pint glass. The label expressly says "Pilsner style", so I'm not sure why this is listed as a Dortmunder.

Appearance: medium-light golden hue with a strong effervescence and a finger of frothy white foam with surprisingly good retention. A nice lace is left on the glass as I drink, and more than halfway through there's still a good finger of foam going on -- great!

Smell: quite malty with a little bit of over-sweetness. There's also a nice graininess here providing necessary counterpoint to the extract-like malt character. Very light noble hops are present; overall, though, it's a surprisingly clean and serviceable aroma.

Taste: kind of extract-malty with minimal hops and, again, a hint of graininess. A little bit less inspiring than the aroma. This is still pretty clean, though, even if a bit bland.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a decent carbonation and an OK creaminess. Maybe not the best in the world, but not bad at all.

Overall: this beer seems to be pretty strongly underrated in my opinion -- it's definitely no gag-inducing adjunct lager. That said, it's a somewhat bland but serviceable beer; it's not really crisp enough to be a Pilsner nor rich enough to be a Dortmunder, but it's refreshing enough for me.
