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.

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.

Solid lager. I was surprised by how light the aroma & mouthfeel was. Crisp lemon, light floral + honey notes, earthy malts, grassiness

cheap (3975) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 26, 2011
From a twist off bottle. Smells a little strong and perhaps sweet for a lager at first but olfactory eventually evolves to a hoppy mild background. Woo, first taste is lots of hops in this almost making it a weirdly hopped american pale ale in nature. Pale lager look with some brown haze in there. Yes, highly hopped in a dull lager processed kind of way. Same with the finish. Decent co2 thru the session. Much personality. IMHO not nearly as good as 1 Edenton Helles Angel 2 Blue Canoe Titusville Gold Lager 3 Löwenbräu Original 4 Höss Neuschwansteiner Helles Lager

Thanks again to my beer buddy Big D!!! A decent larger, not much brewers can do with this style. This beer is on style, and it has a nice hop in the finish. A good beer of its style.

Slightly cloudy, yellow/gold appearance with a small white head and a fair amount of lacing. Subtle aroma; some sweetness, some grassiness, some crisp fruit. Malty, cracker-like flavors up front with a dry, bitter, hoppy aftertaste. Medium-to-light bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel with a lingering finish. Reminded me of the now retired DeGroens Helles.

Reviewed from notes. Pours a clear golden color with some visible carbonation and a white head. The nose is slightly hoppy and floral with some grain. Taste brigs slight bitterness and some straw and grain. Feel is light and crisp leading to good drinkability. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 11-01-2010
