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.

The color is truly amazing, as close to being gold as any I've poured. Short lived head with reasonable lace. Hops are very present, but fade nicely in a good smooth aftertaste. Touch of metallic to the aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel that makes me happy.

jgb9348 (4943) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 14, 2003
Golden colour with a very slight orange tint. Many small bubbles rising from the bottom, while a small white head sits atop. Smells of hops and malt and a semi-strong ale. A nice flavourful beer with definate hoppy inital taste with a very smooth aftertaste. A good all around beer, but not my favourite style.

This is a pretty decent ale for a local brewery. I was quite pleased with it.

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - APR 9, 2003
Draft at Great Lakes. This Helles style beer was outstanding. Amber color with nice head. Rich malt flavor with a hint of sugar. Excellent balance between the Malt and Hops. Very smooth with a nice finish.

Silphium (3188) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 8, 2003
Dortmunder is in the top echelon of lagers. Rich, golden pour with plenty of lacing. The lager tastes like a liquid cookie, with bready, sugary malts and a slight acidic aftertaste, followed by hops bitterness. Rich and luxurious, apprentices.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 7, 2003
Clear amber gold body topped by a medium thick sustaining head with good lace. Somewhat sweet yet bitter aroma with piney and peppery notes. Sweet and bitter hop flavor with a good malt balance with piney notes and a bitter hoppy finish with a touch of pepper. Light to medium bodied and smooth.

fraternie (877) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 29, 2003
About as good as this style gets. Nice golden color. Rich malt for the style, caramel and toffee present, quite flavorful. Moderately hoppy and perfectly smooth. A nice surpise.

Panzuriel (1378) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - MAR 22, 2003
Light yellow liquid. Nice head. Good strong flavor. Good carbonation. Nice full flavor with hints of sweetness. A good beer, just not all that special.

kyzr (1153) - Belgrade, Montana, USA - MAR 18, 2003
This is an outstanding lager. One that puts faith back into the lagers. Great bright clear gold with a nice head. Flavor is sweet and finishes with a little hop to it.
