Poured from tap into pint at the tap and mallet in Rochester ny. Nice golden pour with a finger of head. Not much aroma...very subtle...maybe a hint of bready malts.
Taste is crisp hop meets light malt. One of the most balanced beers I've ever had. The fruity hop really meets the malt perfectly. Smooth and refreshing.
Awesome brew.

Great beer. In Europe you can hardly find Dortmund style beer (or Munich style for that sake) anymore. This beer was very good - nice foam, lot of taste, but not too bitter. Bitterness is of course a matter of preference. Munich style is more bitter and other end of the scale is Paulaner Pilsner. I love this beer.
