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.

Rich, golden color; that’s how a lager should look! Very smooth and well-balanced. Compared to a typical Dortmunder, I would say that they upped the hop level as well as the ABV, making it more friendly to American tastes - an improvement that I wholeheartedly support.

A nice golden red such appearance with a light head. Perfect for the Germany vs Ukrain game. It has mild hops with the characteristic of a Pilsner.

chucklemation (1247) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - MAY 30, 2016
Pours a golden color with a white foam head. Aroma is bread and caramel malts and earthy hops. Flavor is sweet bread and caramel, some earthy and spicy hops. Has a thin, light, smooth body with soft carbonation. Decent.

oldrtybastrd (4911) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 8, 2016
Pours a hazy orangish gold color. Aromas of malts, a touch of orange, and some yeasty notes. Flavor of minimal hopping, some grains, and light fruity aftertaste.

pkbites (857) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 5, 2016
Bottle. Aroma is a bit odd. Soil? Zinc? Tastes like some mineral in it too. Iron? That smell/flavor is not overbearing and shouldn’t keep anyone from enjoying this. It’s just a bit strange is all. Sits a bit heavy in the gut. A bit above mediocre.

ebone1988 (1175) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - APR 19, 2016
Aroma is buttery, hops, malt, mash, weird. Appearance is golden, white head, clear. Taste is buttery, sweet, corn, malt, earthy hops, dirt. Mouthfeel is medium body, light crisp carbonation, earthy aftertaste. Overall, this is a strange style.

justsayswell (260) - Mission, Kansas, USA - FEB 7, 2016
Very clear copper pour with a medium off white head. Little lacing. Nose is caramel malt, bread, corn. Light to medium mouthfeel, slightly creamy. Taste is brown bread, spicy hops. Nice and malty with a fairly mild bite of spicy citrusy hop. Tasty, probably my favorite in the style.

unclefrito62 (26) - Stow, Ohio, USA - JAN 3, 2016
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.

HourGlass13 (535) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 2, 2016
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.

Off flavor, excellent crisp, clean golden appearance. Smooth taste, medium palate. Light lager
