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.

For stuff that is found in my grocery store, this stuff is excellent. Has an aroma reminiscent of the cantillon iris i had not too long ago... call me crazy, but it does. great, almost excellent interplay between the malt and the hops... very satisfying. god bless cleveland

A fantastic golden color, beautiful aroma, and great taste. The only things lacking are the head and the finish. The finish is not short, but could be a bit longer. This, however, does not take away from the experience at all. A fantastic beer.

I love the freshly baked bread maltiness of this beer and its even hop definition. Just a nice, gently crisp brew.

Golden amber color. Very thin head that dissapeared rather quickly. Aroma is definitely floral (Cascades) and some malt comes through as well. I know they use Cascades along with Hallertau hops, I just would like the Hallertaus to be a little more prevalent. It’s alright but not something I’d go out of my way for.

TAR (2503) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - AUG 5, 2002
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2005 A most perfect time to revisit this old favorite of the style. Bread, English hop, toast, and fruit are evenly distributed throughout this clean and, almost, boastful aroma. Dough and brown sugar provide a sweetness that suffices to be a dessert beer. Yet quenching enough to be a session beer and hoppy enough to arouse an appetitie. Medium carbonation and redidual caramel sweetness combine to provide a perfect feel. I wish Dortmunders were more readily available. This is best in its class thus far. Gulpener Dort comes in a close second.

UPDATED: MAY 18, 2005 Re-Rate:11/17/03 Got more as part of a sampler and like more and more every time.Top 10 for me,for sure! Deep,golden color with a beautiful,white, active head.Thickness makes the heavy carbonation slow and almost unappearent. Great ale-like estery flavors.Huge sugar-sweet front followed with soft,smooth,earthy, malts. The leafy smack of hops in the finish is very appealing. It gets some german malt sweetness in the finish also as it warms. Traveled to the brewery in March, and it tasted even more delicate and delicious draft.Bottle showed more resemblence than I expected. Excellent beer anytime.If not perfect,very near.

This stands as one of the few lagers I truly enjoy. Well-balanced and thirst quenching, this is an excellent session beer. Try this during the summer while working outside. You will not be disappointed!

Bottle. The classic golden lager color. I can actually get a nice aroma from this beer. The flavor is a bit tangy, dry, a quick hop bite. There is an essence of fruit in the aroma which I could not pick up when tasted. On the whole nicely balanced and enjoyable to drink, but nothing stands out.

This beer poured nice dark golden color, forming a nice light head that left a wonderful lace after subsiding. An slight aroma of hops and citrus. It had a slightly tangy flavor from the hops that seems to give it a good finish. Decent body for this style. Worth trying.
