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.

Pours a dark gold color - almost like an IPA. Nose is a touch of honey, grass, funk. Has a bit of a nutty quality with bready malt. Ok. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3fourths (7976) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 15, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2013 Draft. Lightly hazed gold, effervescent body, thick, patchy lacing. Quiet but clean pilsner malt aroma of toasted grains / bread / crackers; pungent and spicy noble hop aroma of dried fruit rind and dried grasses suggests this is closer to German pilsner than helles, and the light tough of diacetyl that goes well with the quenching minerality, subtle calcium and sulfur yeast character and the savory malt and smacking crispness, I gotta say this is surprisingly good. The balance and acidity of the malt, and the softness too - no coarseness or grain huskiness at all - this is very drinkable. I have no idea if bottles are similar to draft, but if it is, and if I lived in Virginia (which is never going to happen), I would drink this all the time. Seriously decent American-made lager here.

hfmejias (696) - Dover, Delaware, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Tap at Fordham Brewing Co. / Old Dominion Brewing Co. Light golden, clear, nice white head; nice lacing. Aroma of grain and malts. Flavor is consistent, grainy some sweet malts undertones. Solid and drinkable beer. crisp and refreshing.

Eructoblaster (2983) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 5, 2013
On tap at Old Dominion (Dulles Airport, VA). Nice golden body with an average white foamy head. fair malty/hoppy aroma with bready and flowery hints. Its malty/hoppy taste carries bready and herbal notes. Ends with a decent bitter/herbal finish. Good lager.

GT2 (8352) - San Diego County, California, USA - DEC 10, 2012
12oz found for $1.50 on the shelf somewhere. Pours a clear deeper golden to light amber. Thick, nice looking buttermilk head. Not going to lie. Looks good. Solid lacing. Nose is diacetyl, lemon gum drops, medicinal lemon syrup, celery, some DMS vegetals: tomato and cabbage. Taste is diacetyl butter-bomb, not surprised. Very vegetal: cabbage, cauliflower, repulsive all around- old margarine, gas station buffet food, so "overripe" and composted. Palate is faux buttery/dense, some oil. Another complete garbage beer from possibly the worst brewery there is apart from White Birch. This is actually a bit gag inducing, almost impossible for me.

radio_nowhere (792) - Maryland, USA - SEP 9, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2012 Sampled on brewery tour. Draft into small glass. Amber color, white head. Slight sweet malty and bread aroma. Taste is light-medium, adds spice, hop and a little floral flavor. Nice.

Very average lager. Poured golden with a white head. A decent beer, but not so refreshing or anything special.
