Dominion Lager is brewed using four types of malted barley: Two-Row Pale Brewer’s malt, Munich, Carapils, and Caramel. The bittering hops are Perle and Hallertau from the Yakima Valley in Washington State. The aromatic hops are domestic Tettnang, German Hallertau Hersbrucker, and Czech Saaz. This combination of malt and hops, along with a classic lager yeast from Germany, and the long, low-temperature lagering process results in a mild, smooth, flavorful, complex beer that is a delight to drink.

(bottled 5/9/2) This former GABF gold medal winner has always been a favorite of mine. Nice golden color with a thin white head. The palate is malt driven with the hops coming on later. The body of the beer is medium. I find this beer to be very good and subtlety complex.

This beer has been in my ’backyard’ for the last seven years... and I’m just now trying it. I’m ashamed... because it’s such a jewel. I was completely caught off guard with this one. Nothing what I expected. I expected a light-tasting micro that was targeting macro-drinkers. I got the opposite. A REAL lager with flavor, some tasty sourness, and a lovely tart finish. Hennes’ reference to the GLBC Dort was right on.

Golden with decent head. Nice sweet Saaz hoppy aroma. Good bitterness on the tongue, not much maltiness. Clean/crisp, dry. Very pleasant lager.

Reminds me a lot of Great Lakes’ Dortmunder - the same clean bite of hops rising through a hearty malt.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2005 My appreciation of this one has grown over time. Pretty bright gold. Nose lightly hoppy, biscuity and toasty malts. Flavor very crisp, light lemony hint, plenty of malts. Really nice stuff.

If I lived in Virginia, this would be my everyday beer. You guys are lucky who live near enough to enjoy the strong clean flavor, beautifully accented, of this brew.

Very nice lager, good flavor. Also as hennes mentioned, it also reminds me of the Great Lakes Dortmunder. Also would have to give the edge to Dortmunder as being the better beer.

This is all I ever wanted in a Lager. For an everyday beer, it’s my favorite. Reasonably priced and not too filling. I love it.
