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.

Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a clear dark reddish brown with a thin off white head, aroma is sweet and bready with a little bit of caramel and malt, the flavor has a sweet front end with a bland finish of a little bit of malt, light malt feel, not impressed.

I mistakenly let this warm a bit before pouring. Corn comes out more. Poured with a nice, large, foamy, frothy, off-white head that soon settled to a light cover and a little lace. Color is a clear yellow with some bubble trails. Aroma is corn first then malt and a hint of hop. Flavor’s very similar to nose, but strong carbonation adds significant tang. Body and carbonation are ok. Finish is a little like flavor but morphs into something not as pleasant and too long.

Onslow (1166) - 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.

ryanscourt (745) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 18, 2014
Light sweet flavor, similar to a pilsner but a little more sweet flavors. Light hop crisps, but not that strong.

wmubronco1992 (617) - Coldwater, Michigan, USA - JUN 8, 2014
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
