@ ORD. Golden, with no head. Has a lot of pale malt, lightly spicy hop, Probably a bit too much alcohol, Not bad, though, it hits the style.

Bottle. Poured clear light golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate bread yeast and malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth dry texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Average for style beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Poured clear, bright, honey-golden with a short-lived white head. The aroma picked up sweet honey and corn notes with touches of vanilla and dry earth around.. smelled drinkable, but not great. The flavor found honey and sweet bready malts at the core, with lightly tangy malts and a touch of apple skin around.. finished with some tangy notes over sweet honeyed malts. Light-bodied with an ok flow through the palate.. filling carbonation.. drinkable.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma is grains, slightly perfumed and, oddly, bologna. The flavor is grainy malts, mild/medium sweetness and an odd twang/sourness in the finish. The bologna did it for me.

bottle. Golden with small head. It’s hard to get excited about this style. Lagery with a bit of corn. Ok.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy bright golden yellow color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of cracker, lightly toasted biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of cracker, lightly toasted biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, pepper, and yeast earthiness. Moderate amount of herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of cracker, biscuit, light honey, pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and balance of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Good amount of dryness after the finish from bitterness. Very clean on lager flavors with zero yeast ester notes present. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly creamy/sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good Dortmunder style. All around good robustness and balance of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth, crisp, and clean to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

There are no other Dortwunder or Dortwonders in the database. Congratulations to Berghoff for being the first to come up w/ this ridiculous name! And the icing on the cake is this beer is not abjectly terrible. Truly the first day this was brewed will be forever remembered in the anals of Point Brewing history. It’s a clear orange yellow w/ a long-lasting head of fine white bubbles. The nose is floury malts along w/ some floral, grassy and lemon tones from the hops. This has a bit of a sweet honey-like character but it is at least firmly bitter to balance. A very slight metallic off note around the edges in the finish is my biggest complaint. Overall, this is a medium bodied, highly-carbonated brew that is nice and drinkable w/ a little more flavor than a standard macro later (note: I like macro lagers so I don’t mean this to be disparaging). I could drink a six pack of this and come back for more so, hey, it serves it’s purpose.
