This is a most pleasant beer. Please excuse the out of focus picture.
Excerpt from Beer Advocate:
Dortmunder / Export Lager
Made popular in the 19th century in Dortmund, Germany, these pale golden lagers exhibit a classic clean character with notes of biscuity malts. Bitterness is akin to a German Pilsner with an aromatic aroma. Mouthfeel is firm and even, with an overall dry tone.
This beer fits all that criteria to a "T"!
To me the bottle is useless. Screw-top!
The beer pours a basic straw color with a very thin white head that dissipates to a thin ring half way through the drink. It is what it is. There is very little lacing, but this is a beer to quench a thirst so lacing shmacing.
It smells slightly biscuity and maybe a little fruity. It's really nice and simple. Crisp, with no cheap corn substitute grain smell at all. They probably didn't use corn as a substitute then.
I taste sweet light malts balanced with mild bitterness that is pretty even throughout the sip and a little dry lingering at the end. Pretty darn tasty.
I guess you can call the mouthfeel firm. I have to learn more about that term. It's very well balanced smooth and sweet.
I like this beer. I bet it will be great this summer on board ship or at the Folk Fest!
Happy Brew-per Bowl Sunday everyone!
