I had this on draft 9/5/23 @ Laschet's Inn.

See-through yellow/orange appearance.

Huge white head; minimal lacing remained.

Fresh bread & pine notes in the nose.

Medium mouthfeel.

Bread, pine & faint lemon flavors.

A refreshing Pils!

This one pours a mostly clear golden yellow color, with a small head, and lots of lacing.

This smells like a bit of a malty pilsner in a good way, with bready and slightly spicy malt, and just a hint of grassy hop character.

This is smooth, slightly sweet, but not overwhelmingly so, with lemon, grassiness, and a dry taste on the finish.

This is light bodied, very smooth, almost creamy, and crisp on the finish.

This is definitely a solid maltier take on a pilsner, that remains dry while still being malt driven.

Pale yellow pour with a two inch white head that dissipates fairly quick.

Aroma is bready with plenty of malt. Wafts of herbalness is pleasing.

Malt forward. Slightly sweet with caramel undertones. Mild hop finish.

Mouthfeel is rich, clean and crisp.

I've been putting these down for nearly nine years on and off. Back then I would of given this a five across the boards. I'm sure my taste buds have evolved esp. with all these newfangled craft beers coming out. Nonetheless, a nice Pils to have dinner with and lighter than HB. I've had this from a bottle and thought it was terrible-definitely one to go to on tap, IMO. Prost!

drank at Christl's German Inn.

Served in a pitcher. Drank from .25L mugs

A: Pale straw color. Heavy carbonation led to large foamy heads on the first two glasses. Head dissipated to nearly nothing very quickly.

S: Sweet dry malts, similar to a fresh pancake. Not much else.

T & M: clean and crisp. Light maltiness with a dry finish. A bit of bittering hops to round it out, but otherwise a very limited hop presence. Light bodied with heavy carbonation.

D: This almost falls into the category of light beer, but, this beer is true to its style and can't be faulted for that. Certainly is an easy drinker and, as to be expected, it pairs nicely with heavy German food.

Binny's Orland

BBK Export pours a straw golden with just a touch of haze. Large carbonation bubbles fill the body and rise quickly to the surface. A three finger bright white head formed on the pour and eventually settled to a small crown leaving a patch of lace here and there. The head could be more impressive.

I like the aroma on this one. Freshly husked grains combine with lightly toasted grains creating a clean backdrop for the flash of lightly herbal and grassy hops. Green apple skins show up quickly on the end and disappear just as quickly. Everything smells very clean and distinct.

Everything in the aroma is reinforced in the flavor. My only complaint is things seem to be a little muddied in the mouth. The flavors aren't quite as crisp as the nose led me to believe. Green apple is a little more pronounced on toward the back and there's a buttery finish.

Mouthfeel is good for the style. Medium bodied with a carbonation that awakens the tongue without being overly stimulating.

This is a beer that could be sessioned without question. This is refreshing, although a little more crispness would boost the score.

I've never seen this beer before and was in the mood to try some styles I usually don't so I picked this up. Not a bad Dortmunder but when I'm in the mood for the style it's tough to beat Great Lakes version.

Poured from a 500 ml. bottle. Leaves a less than one finger head, but has good retention, and some good lacing. Body is a clear gold.

Smell -grassy, herbal hops and toasty, biscuity malt.

Taste - same as the smell. Grassy, herbal hops over a mild toasty, biscuity malt. Nothing complex, but good and refreshing.

Mouthfeel - full to medium bodied, moderate carbonation, smooth.

Drinkability - this is simple and straightforward, but good, refreshing, and very sessionable.

Poured from a 500ml bottle.

Appearance- Pours a bright white, spritzy head that quickly dissipates to nothing. Color is a golden, light honey color. The typecast, German lager color. Only a couple of bubbles escaping to the surface at a time.

Smell- Mildy tart aroma with a little floral hops to boot. Other than that, smells just like Warsteiner.

Taste- Very dull tasting. Lots of water with a bit of hops and even smaller amounts of malt added as an afterthought.

Mouthfeel- Pretty light, a great beer to drink copious quantities of.
