Clear copper colour with a small, short lasted off-white head.

Very sweet, slightly artificial aroma.

Sweet, slightly grainy flavour with mild esters and a touch of caramel.

Medium body with moderate carbonation.

A nice enough strong lager but it is too sweet and cloying for my tastes.

(31-12-2007, BB 08-08)

Deep golden beer with a good head leaving rings in my tulipglas.
Lots of malts, caramel, fruity and slightly toasted smell.
Sweet/bitter taste, again lots of malty flavor.
Medium heavy body, due to the malts, with an average dry aftertaste.
Descent beer, according to style.

As it sets in my glass, unambiguous copper color, and the head miniscule, the color an off white with the texture frothy and the resultant lace a filmy coating upon the glass. The aroma of sweet malted grains dominate, citrus crisp and clean, fresh and quite inviting as noses go, start is sweetly malt, the top slender in its feel to the palate. Finish has a distinct acidic bite, tart and tangy, hops are present but understated in their spiciness, very dry and lingering aftertaste, a quite quaffable brew.

Bottle of 300 ml at home. My first beer of the Dortmunder style.
Colour is of copper, with two fingers white head, quickly gone, leaving some lacing around the glass.
Hops on the aroma, caramel and some faint smell of alcohol.
Taste is sweet, with some caramel and roasted malts traces. The 7% alcohol is like it's not even there.On the body feels thick and it has an average amount of carbonation.
Overall, a nice experience, it was like I was drinking one of the Mei/Lente (spring) bocks but with the high alcohol not being so obviously present.

It pours an amber brown color with a thin head and it is very clear.

Smell is malty and slightly sulfuric. It reminds me of all the beautifull German beers.

Taste is very malty and bitter with a nice sizzle from the carbonation. The special malts give the beer a caramel and breadiness. Aftertaste is bitter and dry. Body is medium to thin and fits this beerstyle. Drinkability is high because of it's thin body and balance between malt and bitter.

Pours a light bronze color with white head and decent-sized white lace on the glass.
Aroma of darker fruits,raisins and plums along with a hint of clove and banana.
Flavor is similar to the aroma, dark fruits with some sweet molasses or honey added.
Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with big sweet front and a slightly spciy and alcoholic finish.
Drinkability is fairly high despite its relatively sweet taste.

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

Crystal clear filtered gold with red hues, medium white foam, coarse bubbles

Noble hops aroma and caramell malt, dark bread, no metal which I usually get with those malts

Lager twang in the beginning with very pleasant malt body caries through, again no metal, bitterness just to balance the malt

Enough carbonation to lift the medium body, smooth, warming

A quite interesting beer. A lager with 7% alcohol and I do not even taste it (though it warms). Nice malty exeperience without beeing sweet. Guess this would be a great to balance spicy food.

A malty appearance and taste. First impressions are pleasant. Head is full and nicely laced. Very fine carbonation.

Can smell the alcohol here but not to the detriment of the bier. Very smooth initial taste with a slight after taste of hops.

I'll need a few more of these to go down before I get the full appreciation for this. All in all, a very good initial feeling about this.

This is one of those beers made without many pretensions. I left this beer a bit too long in my fridge (BB MAR06) but having been kept cold the beer did not suffer. A beautifully dark orange beer with almost no head (very persistent layer though) it has an incredibly malty taste. Sweet. Taste follows smell closely. Very bitter, lingering aftertaste though. A nice beer.

Pours a lovely amber color with a short white head that quickly disappears. The smell has malt, grain and fruit qualities. It tastes great: malty, a little fruity, and just enough bitterness to keep it all balanced.

Gulpener Dort is a great lager. It is a definite must-try from Holland.

Rather dull yellowish-orange with an off-white frothy head that faded quickly. Rather sweet on the nose, not too strong, very pleasant. Very tangy, sweet, citrus, many different sensations and tastes. It was very unique, feel and taste, lingered for a while. The aftertaste faded into something spicy that I wouldn't have expected from the beer that I just swallowed. Hard to describe, never had anything else like it to compare.

Smell: Sweet malts, caramel, honey and some hops.
Taste: Marshmellow, caramel malts, bread with a nice dry hoppy finish.
Mouthfeel: High-carbonation, medium body.
Overall: Sweeter and stronger version of the German style
