3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had to catch myself and rate the last one of the six-pack before it ran out. This is a nice, well, gold color with minimal but pleasant head and lacing. Aroma is light dough, laced with caramel and some vegetal hoppiness. Flavor is nicely balanced and complex grain, clean and woodsy hoppiness. Really a perfect balance between residual sweetness and hoppiness here. Really good stuff.

Dort has a bready smell It looks nice in a glass with deeper yellow in color. It has a thin white head which quickly goes away. This dort is a little sweeter on the palate and overall I gave it a 16. Had this on draft.

Crystal clear golden pour, with an off white head. Aroma is mild, but has some bread and malt, with a hint of grass. Taste is well balanced with notes of biscuit, light citrus hops, and malt. Very clean. A very drinkable and enjoyable.

This beer is wonderful. I don’t know of too many other Dortmunders, but I don’t need to, because this is the one I’d recommend to others without even thinking about it. It’s rich and it’s smooth and it looks pretty.

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.
