COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

Truly exceptional domestic example of Export. This beer just blows me away. It is so balanced, malty, and clean. Everything a good lager should be. Beautiful, bright, golden color with a moderate carbonation, and a firm white head. Really great balance of malt and hop aromas in the nose. This beer has a crisp, smooth, and clean malt palate. Dominion Lager finishes with some more great balanced malt and hop flavors. This beer as an Export is perfect. One of the best beers on the market today, from one of America’s best breweries.
