500ml bottle (exp. 01/17/2016, bottled 01/17/2015), pilsner glass. Straw in color, white foam that has short retention. Good aroma, but nothing special. Good taste, well balanced, focusing on malts. Medium body and crispy. Has some bitterness and dryness too.

Appearance: pours a sudsy 2" white head that drops quickly with a tiny bit of lacing. Color is clear pale yellow with moderate streaming bubbles.
Aroma: grain husks, white bread dough, grassy hops
Mouthfeel: light and fairly crisp with a fairly dry finish.
Flavor: lightly toasted barley, corn husks, lemon and grassy hops.
Overall: good, but their are plenty of better Euro Pale Lagers available.

500 ml bottle into lager glass, best before 5/21/2015. Pours crystal clear bright golden yellow color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Outstanding appearance. Aromas of cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of cracker, biscuit, light honey, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Nice robustness and balance of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness after the finish, and very clean on lager flavors with minimal yeast ester notes present. Medium-high carbonation and medium body; with a very smooth, fairly creamy/grainy/sticky, and crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish as expected of 5.4%. Overall this is a nice Dortmunder style. All around good robustness and balance of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth, crisp, and clean to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

From can, pours a straw clear colour with small white head that goes away quickly. Aroma is malty and grainy with straw and corn notes. Flavor is sweet with some bitterness and acid citric notes. Not bad.

Pours a clear straw yellow, good head, but thin lace disappear halfway through drink.
Big grassy aroma at first. Halfway through, this aroma fades and I detect a small amount sweet malt and alcohol.
Crisp and tingly carbonation. Light and refreshing mouthfeel. Taste of mostly sweet toasted malts with a little hops finish for balance. My only issue is that the crisp feel looses its essence because as the drink warms, the carbonation fades too quickly.

Bright straw color with strong activity. Foamy white sparkly 3 finger head lasting around 5 minutes with average legs.

Aromas and flavors of grains, citrus, corn, herbal spices. Faint grainy, skunky, and metallic smell. Sweet grainy, lemony, and apple taste with slightly bitter hoppy grassy feel.

Almost medium body with prickly carbonation. Faint finish of medium length ending with herbal spicy smoky bitter saaz feel lingering on the tongue creating dryness.

Overall a poor craft with good freshness that is destroyed by a dry finish, and faint flavors that doesn't taste very good.
