look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: clear blonde in color with a white head.

Smell: malty, lemon, a little metallic scent

Taste: malts upfront then some light lemon hops finish with a light dry metallic tastes.

Mouthfeel: light to medium body. High carbonation. Smooth.

Overall: very drinkable with a good flavor. I think it would be great on a hot day. It's a great take on export lager.

Date tasted: May 10, 2013...
Glassware: pilsner...
Occasion: long/good week of baseball coaching...
Appearance: odd sediment floats in a burnt-orange body; nice cirrus tracings of off-white head...
Aroma: flavorfully thick,, doughy fragrance; sugary with toffee also...
Palate: smooth yet slightly complex mouthfeel; worthwhile to hold before swallowing...
Taste: intensely malty, strong finish with a shortness of hops...sweet and flavorful...
Overall: as Dortmunders go, a solid offering--couples with chips well and yet could stand alone for a night of socializing as well....

A- Golden orange with thick one-finger head.

S- Nothing that really sticks out. Very clean, and inviting smell.

T- Malthy and smooth with almost nothing to complain about. It Is complex and yet not over whelming.

MF- Smooth with little after taste. Light carbonation, won't make you burp too much.

O- I would recommend this beer to anyone who likes malty beers. Well Done!
