COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dominion Ale is brewed in an English style with American Two-Row Pale, Caramel, and Black malts. We use Perle, Willamette, and Mount Hood hops from the Pacific Northwest and English Kent Golding Hops. We ferment our ale with a traditional American yeast in the German Kolsch style - warm, fast fermentation followed by a slow maturation. Dominion Ale is malty with an assertive hop character dominated by the Kent Golding. It is crystal clear amber colored with medium body. Widely available in bottles and on draft, often as a house brand name.

Imperial pint at Tidewaters in Washington Dulles airport. Pours a copper color with a whispy white head. Aroma is a little metallic with grassy notes, wood light corny malts. Palate is on the lighter side. Decent hoppiness, considering but it does carry that metallic flavor. Finish is a little fruity with a dash of butter. Meh.

Draft. Pours amber with an off white head. Light sweet caramel malty aroma with some flowery hoppy hints. The flavor is plain and balanced, with a light malty sweetness and some light floral bitterness. Not awful.

Received this as a present for Christmas so had to have one while playing Wii on Christmas day! Thanks Gayle! Nice aroma with earthy notes and a hint of toffee that lasts for a long time. Finishes so well that I would rate this beer as very drinkable. Two thumbs up! Need to save some for CMB when he comes home in a few weeks
