COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This smooth lager strikes a delicate balance between malt and hops in the aroma, palate, finish and body. It has more body and less hops than a Pilsner, and less malt and more hops than a Munich style lager. 30 IBU.

Bottle Pours a a slightly hazy light golden amber with a good foamy white head. Aroma is a light fresh smelling grain, apple cider, and yeast with an easy hops trace. Flavor is slightly sweet, bready and the slightly higer ABV is noticeable. Feel is very light and crisp and the finish is quick, clean with just a hint of hops. Very nice refreshing, light brew.

sfontain (851) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 4, 2004
Light red with a great, huge, chunky, disappearing head. Aroma a bit weak with light malts and a little citrus. Flavor is lightly sweet, fruity malts, matched up with a solidly hoppy finish. Feels both clean and silky, yet not sticky; nice. Tasty.

awaller05 (305) - Sharon, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 26, 2004
sweet smell as it was poured, nice golden hue with a decent size head. Just enough hops to keep the malt at bay. Would recommend this beer to people

First Dortmunder, I think. I was surprised that I liked this golden beer. Lots of malt, which Iím not ordinarily a huge fan of. I think Iíll check out some more German styles after this one.

MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 20, 2004
Clear deep golden in color with a decent white foamy head that leaves good lacing in my glass. Bready and flowery aromas, nice bready and grainy flavors, medium bodied, nice smooth mouthfeel, finishes clean and dry, very tasty and drinkable, this is an awesome brew.

WabashMan (1023) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - AUG 17, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2015 By a long shot, the best Dortmunder Iíve sampled. Excellent color and head make this a very beautiful beer. Nose is the weak point, but the flavor is also great. A very clean, refreshing, and surprisingly good brew.

garrison (810) - Cin. city, Ohio, USA - AUG 11, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2004 From a bottle - This poured a rapidly diminishing white gead of foam atop a rather dark amber body that smelled slightly of malt and grain. The taste, however, was truely upper-class, especially for a lager, and Irecommend this beer.

Itís not that thereís a bad aroma, there just isnít one at all, lots of sediment that you can even see through the bottle, it looks like sea monkeys bathing in gold, creamy mouthfeel, one of the better light beers Iíve had recently.

beerguy101 (5356) - Newark, California, USA - JUL 29, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2005 Orange gold color. Medium white chunky head. Aroma is malty, fruity and sweet. A medium bodied helles. Malts are fruity and sweet. Hops are slightly spicy and a touch bitter. Hints of orange and honey. Nicely balanced. Light and refreshing, yet very flavorful. Nice beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.
