3.61/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Nearly clear with a light golden color. Modest head but it leaves a lattice of lace.

Palest of malt smells with a slight aroma of unmalted barley grain.

Round mouthfeel with a subdued effervescence. Lightly sweet with the aforementioned graininess showing up strongest. The hop is nearly missing with just enough to prevent the brew from being completely one sided. Short and clean aftertaste.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

The colour is pale yellow; the liquid clear. The two finger head is white and compact and it sinks to a thick lid leaving no lacing on the glass.

The smell is fresh with bitter hops, sweet cereals and a hint of butter in the background.

The taste is quite bitter with very clean notes of pilsner malt, noble bitter hops, sweet müsli cereals and a touch of minerals. Light to medium body. The aftertaste is clean with sweet dough/French loaf, and floral hops. The finish is mild with sweetness and bitter hops (clean like hop extract).

The carbonation is strong; the many small bubbles tickles the tongue. The liquid is semi-smooth.

A solid lager. Bitterer than the average München helles, but not as caramel-malty as the standard Dortmunder Export.

From the 11.2 oz bottle in a snifter. This fine dortmunder pours a clear golden color with a nice head of white dissipating foam that settles to a thick ring, thin layer, and light lacing. Nose of pilsner malts, apples, subtle honey, and light grains. Flavors follow the nose with honey and subtle yeast notes on the front and middle of the taste, subtle grain notes hit on the rear with a touch of apple and finish off with a subtle herbal hop. Balanced and delicious. Nice mouth feel, refreshing and well rounded with a lightly sweet subtly bitter aftertaste. Excellence from Germany.

Cheers

11.2 oz foil capped bottle poured into a pub-style pint.

Appearance
Pale straw with 1 finger of creamy white head. Excellent clarity with light carbonation and subtle yeast sediment dancing about.

Nose
Golden apple and sweet Pilsner malts.

Taste
Follows the nose. Golden apple and Pilsner malts offering a soft graininess. Well balanced floral hoppiness.

Delicate while keeping a modest bitterness. A nice Dortmunder that is mighty quaffable.

this is just a perfect beer. beautifully balanced, with just enough bready malt to give it a touch of heft, a mild floral noble hop bite, and a perfectly prickly, crisp finish. all day, every day. that's what this beer is made for. and i would be happy to indulge - prost!

Appearance: Clear, golden color with two fingers of white head that fades slowly with bubbly lacing.

Aroma: Very classic lager aroma - slightly grainy malt and faint noble hops.

A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in color and has a light to moderate amount of carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that died down, leaving a thin head covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of biscuity malts are present in the nose along with some hints of grassy hops.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste has mild flavors of biscuit malts with hints of grassy hops and faint bits of grapes. A slight amount of bitterness is present.
M: It feels light-bodied and clean on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation. A tough of dryness becomes noticeable as the beer warms up.
O: This beer is easy to drink and has a good balance between the mild flavors of malts and hops.
