COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dortmunder is still famous as a brewing center, but its namesake beer is something of a rarity these days. The great beer writer Michael Jackson described the style as halfway between the austere crispness of a German pils and the lush maltiness of a Munich helles—in other words, a perfectly balanced all-malt beer. Starting with a base of U.S. 2-row pilsner malt, we add just enough lightly-kilned Vienna and Munich malts to add a slight caramel character. Hops are New World versions of European classics, smooth and clean, but with some real personality as well.

First of all, I don’t think this is really a lager. For me its much closer to an APA (which is one of my favorite styles). hazy gold with a frothy white head. decent lacing. nose is grass with some hops coming through. Taste is crisp and slightly bitter. Bitter hops on the finish with some nasal linger. I like this beer and could easily session it.

Bottle. Pours clear corn color. White size white head. Fruity aroma. Flavor is of grain and honey. Overall very mild. Noting offensive, in fact I could see drinking this again because it is nice and smooth. However there is nothing that would make me seek this out. Reminds me of other Stevens Point beers

Light sweet flavor, similar to a pilsner but a little more sweet flavors. Light hop crisps, but not that strong.

Onslow (1132) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Clear yellow brew with white head, good lacing as the glass goes down. Aroma of light malt and a little grass. Taste is sweet light malt at the start with a pleasant dry grassy finish, a little crisp green fruit at the end. Not a hint of adjunct and no off tastes or smells. Enough character to rise above being merely an inoffensive brew. Simple but tasty.

Berghoff introspective 1 of 5. So I looked in the cooler at Woodman’s and noticed this beer from Berghoff as one I haven’t rated yet. I managed to find five Berghoff’s in the singles coolers and was ecstatic to get more Wisconsin rates. A long time ago I started on rate beer and I simply had to try and buy everything. That everything soon became everything in the Midwest: the three I’s – Illinois, Indiana and Iowa, the three M’s – Missouri, Minnesota and Michigan and my home state of Wisconsin. Not long into the process I had to drop the three I’s as my cellar and waistline were expanding at a rate my pocketbook could not keep up with. One by one the M’s dropped off with me focusing on mainly one thing now – Wisconsin beers. If the beer is from Wisconsin and I haven’t had it, I’ll buy it - every single one (save swill at the moment). So as I poured my “made in Steven’s Point beer” into my “Brewed in Monroe Wisconsin” Berghoff glass (coincidence) I had now added another Wisconsin click to my wide assortment of Wisconsin rates... but wait, Berhoff is now from Chicago??

Straw yellow with a slowly fading medium white head. Aroma of skunked grains, toasted malt and mild bready notes. Taste is bland and wunderless with toasted Munich malts, grassy/leafy notes and a dry finish.
