(Served in an imperial nonic)

A- This beer has an amber hued yellow crystal clear yellow body with a thick white head of foam. There is a tiny bubble carbonation that glides to the surface.

S- The smell of dry pale malt is pretty clean with a fresh raw grain aroma to follow and a softer green hop finish.

T- The slightly sweet note to the pale malt flavor is followed by a Munich malt flavor and a light dry honey malt note. There is a dry crisp sulfury hop finish with earthy qualities and Noble hop flavors aswell. As the beer warms the hop bite in the finish grows and also has a fresh pale grain flavor to it that lingers also.

M- This beer has a light mouthfeel with a crisp clean finish. No alcohol heat noticed.

D- This beer is crisp and clean and easy to drink with a nice bit of depth to the hops and malt profiles.

a very concise dortmunder that develops a nice apple malt nose. goes down quite clean. crisp mild pislner finish with a nice dry grassy mint finish... excellent warm. with a nice lavender floral. wonderful blend of apple fruit, dry aroma of flowers and light body. would love to run into this on the regular. wonderful 'session'.

On tap at Local Option in Chicago, served in a pint glass (due to the extreme humidity, the glass was REALLY wet with condensation, not sure if that affected the beer or not)

Pours a pretty clear golden/amber color with very little head and almost no lacing

Smelled very "summery" with a grassy hop aroma

Upfront sweetness quickly fades to a more standard three floyds hop presence taking over before you could really even appreciate the malt

Finishes dry, very easy to drink beer and something I would definitely enjoy drinking in the summer

Two pints @ Local Option... this was a collaborative brew between Local Option & FFF.

Hazy golden color, it was served in a footed Schneider Edel-Weisse glass:

The half inch of foam receded slowly, leaving a crown of intricate lacing behind. It resembled a death metal band logo, with spiky woven tendrils of lace. The aroma was clean and bready, with a light whiff of summer weeds. Dry malty flavor, a combination of honey, clover, and water crackers. The aftertaste was full of dry herbal noble hops. Even carbonation, with a crisp clean feel. Two pints were easy, this is a true German-style session bier. Prost!

Had on tap 4/29 into a pint glass

Poured a clear golden color with a half inch white head that sank to a skim. Left a decent amount of lacing but nothing spectacular.

Aroma was clean and lagery, a bit of graininess that is slightly sweet and some noble hop aromas that come across herbal and spicy, somewhat grassy.

Taste is also very clean with grainy malt flavors up front, slightly sweet with a toasted note. Hop flavors come in the middle, the same noble character as the aroma, and last into the finish which is quite dry.

Mouthfeel is medium-light, crisp, refreshing, clean. Basically what a good lager should be.

Quite an enjoyable beer for the style. It's a very good drinkable lager that I can enjoy for sure.
