Pours a clear golden with a nice little head.
Smells of basically sweet malt and bread with a touch of hops.
Tastes very sweet with a nice earthy middle and dry finish.
Mouthfeel is light bodied.
Overall, very nice, as expected.

Serving: Bottle


Clear golden straw with two fingers white puff settles to patchy film some foamy lace. Bready with a slight hop bite and the aroma flavor follows suit. Ridiculously clean, very drinkable, herbal finish that compliments the breadiness of the flavor and presses you for another swig. Meaty cereal backbone with lightly toasted malt and crisp hops. Well made very good and refreshing. Would have again.

Had on tap the other day. My first Dortmunder.
Nice orange-gold color, little to no head.
Malty, sweet, and grainy.
Some subtle hop bitterness for a little kick.
Enjoyed it.
