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.

On tap, poured into a shaker. There’s a cheesy funk to the aroma with wheat and tart fruits. It pours a clear straw with a dense, soft white head. A thin, filmy surface is left behind with a thin ring. The lace runs, so it leaves a clean glass. The taste blends medium sweet with a light bitter. The texture is oily with a medium body and a bubbly champagne carbonation. It finishes buttery, floral, and fruity with a slightly astringent aftertaste.

This was the first beer I’d ever tried from Minhas craft brewery. They do a fine job- the packaging was interesting, well designed with care and thought, thus the relatively high appearance rating. The pour itself was fizzy but not too much so, with a pale hay color and honey edges. A nice crisp finish. Not all together memorable, but a njce beer.

An OK beer. Too light for my taste and too carbonated. Certainly drinkable but there are many beers I would choose first

Yellowish pour from a tap. Standard lager. Crisp and clean. Good for summer time. Not much to it though

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.

Pours straw yellow with a good white foamy head. More lager than ale. Not bad - will buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

One of the easiest everyday beers ever found. Love this stuff and would buy it by the cartload if readily available.
