Clear straw color, almost no head. Aroma has mostly earthy noble hop notes. Taste starts slightly sweet with a very clean malt profile, almost no hop bitterness. Light bodied, crisp carbonation. Really clean but boring.

This dortmunder export lager pours a light orange color with a thin white head. The smell is mild, but is faintly of yeast and light bready malts. The flavor is also quite yeast heavy, with some light flavors of bread and a dry somewhat acerbic lightly hopped finish. This beer is well balanced and has good clean flavors, but it is wholly uninteresting to me. It’s maybe a nice change if you want something other than a pilsner for a light sessionable beer, but other than that it is pretty “meh”. I thought at first that maybe I just wasn’t that interested in this style, but I see that Ayinger Jahrhundertbier and Tegernsee Spezial are also both examples of this style and I think they are both clearly superior. Still there is nothing wrong with this beer and if it was on sale I wouldn’t mind drinking it again.

330ml bottle served in a pint glass. Looks like the best by date is 16.11.2015. Traveled here from Germany in a suitcase.

Pours clear golden with little head and lots of carbonation. Smell is not bad. Light yeast, honey.

Taste is slightly malt liquory. Nice grassy bitterness and some honey sweetness.

Mouth feel is surprisingly full. Overall, not bad.

Clean and crisp grassy hop aroma. Darkish gold, lazy carbonation, small but sufficient white head. Mostly grainy base, good hop notes. Hay, meadow and sweet malt aroma.
