COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This golden Lager is brewed using a traditional German decoction mash. By decoction mashing, we are able to achieve a full malt profile that is complemented by the addition of spicy German hops. We condition our Dortmunder for a full eight weeks which allows the malt and hop characteristics within the beer to fuse together. All of these steps are evident in our final product: a medium- bodied golden lager showcasing a delicious malt flavor balanced with a Noble hop character. Malts: 2- Row, Munich 10L, Carapils Hops: Cluster, Hallertau, Tettnang

briny aroma, like a can of black olives, with some citrus and caramel. old bottle? i agree it smells kinda belgian or something. taste is a bit sour, bright, some caramel and toast. medium body, lively carbonation. this is pretty weird but not bad.

Poured from a bomber into a footed pilsner. Appearance is a translucent yellow with an enormous white head. Several inches of foam produced from a small amount of liquid. Aroma is sweet and grainy. Reminds me a lot of duvel in the aroma. Taste is sweet, fruity, grainy, and a touch of alcohol. This beer rocks.

Fevernova (210) - Athens, Ohio, USA - SEP 2, 2010
22 oz Bottle -- Pours reddish-orange with a foamy off-white head. Smells more like a belgian than a dortmunder. Aromas of biscuits, malt, fig, raisins, sweet potato, brown sugar, and yeast. Sweet throughout the palate.

Tap. Semi-hazy orange pour with a foamy white head. Aroma and taste of malt and biscuits. Just okay - nothing great.

When this beer is virtually 100% off white head. Very slowly the foam drops and liquid appears. That beer is clear golden and is well carbonated. Some solids in the final pour. Aroma is malt, fruit, biscuit, and alcohol (even tho ABV is listed as 4.5%). Flavor is malt dominated with fruit, biscuit, and rye. Flavor warmed nicely and it became a pretty good beer. It started a bit rocky, but ended well.

Bottle bonus thanks to phaleslu! Straw yellow poor, ongoing carbonation and an aroma of squash?? Flavor is better than the aroma, some white pepper, sugar, a little hops and finished vegetal on the aftertaste. Probably wouldn’t buy this one.

I’m not sure what to do with this, smells like a triple? why is that? this can’t be a dortmunder. I saw other people saying they thought their bottles were old, i think mine was mixed up. Not sure, it’s good but not what i was expecting.

I had this from a bottle. It could have been old. The color was very pale with a brown-yellow tint. Minimal carbonation. There were some honey flavors, but over all it was stale, however, did not taste skunked. This did not come close to a dortmunder style.

22 oz. bottle (notes). Pours a clear golden color with a larger off white head. The aroma is mildly sweet biscuity malt with a hint of lemon citrus and mild hop spiciness. The flavor is more biscuity malt with a touch of honey sweetness. Toward the finish the lemon citrus gets a touch sour which is strange. Slight hints of toasted bread come out. Light-medium bodied with a slightly dry finish.

Draft sample at a Barrel House tasting at Teller’s of Hyde Park. Pours clear gold with a medium white head. Aroma of German hops, malts, straw, and honey. Flavor of honey, straw, hops, malts, grass, and spices. Light bodied, sharp, and crisp. Dry finish. Very nice Dortmunder.
