As the deScription says, this is a sorta middle of the road, as far as hop to malt balance goes, lager. It’s quite well made, being crisp and clean without being boring, but it doesn’t knock my socks off for a lager, but that’s probably more just my taste (Prima Pils tends to impress me as a lager, but that’s just my taste). If you’re looking for a nice bottom fermented beer, and this is around, consider yourself lucky!.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Saltines, nutty malts, and earthy, mildly grassy hops in the aroma. The mouthfeel is runny and well-carbonated. The taste is moderately bitter, mildly earthy with low spiciness, nicely balancing bready malts and hoppy flavors. The finish is dry and slightly mineraly.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Best by reads 12/15/2015.
Aroma - Freshly baked bread. Sweet, pale malt. Faint sourdough quality.
Appearance - Pillowy white head with deep gold complexion. Thick band of white lacing coats the rim. Spectacular sight.
Taste - Unbeatable balance in this beer. Chewy, bready sweetness upfront is equally matched by herbal hops. Hops lingering cloyingly on the palate with mild spicy alcohol.
Palate - Medium bodied. Dry. Supreme balance.
Overall - Love this beer and big props to the one and only Kevin Horton for transporting it north from the Pennsylvania desert for me.

I can’t believe I hadn’t had this before. From the bottle at a wedding. Taste is crisp clean fruity lager. Maybe a tad too far on the sweet side to be truly amazing but what a good lager.

This Dartmouth Gold is worth its weight in gold, tastes like Cleveland and would try the imperial version.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours orange/yellow with an average head. The aroma is really nice; the malt is bright and buttery, and the hops add some floral tingle. But the flavor especially pops. This beer tastes great. That rich, sweet malt lays a foundation for some surprisingly strong hops. It’s just a satisfying beer.

Old rating copied over from another site.
Poured into a nonic pint, this is a fairly clear beer, amber in color with a finger of soapy off-white head. A nice bread character to it. Earthy and slightly citrusy hops (orange peel, for the most part), and a subtle toasted character. A touch of pepper is there and maybe a hint of grass. Flavor is surprisingly heavy on the citrus peel and grass. A slight hop bitterness with a decent earthy quality. Bread, toast, and hints of toffee provide the malt character. yeast is also prominent. Light to medium in body with a moderate carbonation. Easy to drink, clean, and crisp.
