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.

mansquito (4209) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Harris Teeter, DC sixer ($7): Pours a slightly dark color for a Dortmunder with a white head. Aroma is of grass, grain, hops, and bread. Taste is much the same. Very well-balanced. Full of flavour. Nothing boring, but still this is really nice and sessionable. Hops are in good force. No offensive notes. Nice bready flavour. Made to style, and done well, which is more than I can say about most beer. Is it my favourite Dort? No. Do I like it? Yes. Good value? Hell, yes.
