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.

Dortmunder is a great beer with perfect color and aroma The taste is very smooth and slightly more hoppy then Eliot ness. This is the best beer Great Lakes offer and I would recommend it to everyone.

Tayeth (487) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 10, 2015
Der Geruch ist irgendwie seltsam, fast ein bisschen wie Brühwürfel. Geschmack interessant, fast ein bisschen salzig oder umami. Nicht schlecht, aber merkwürdig.

Farbe amber, leicht trüb. Geruch leicht muffig. In Geschmack dann leicht malzig. Seltsamer Nachgeschmack, wenig bitter. Evtl. Autolyse?

BeerBunker (907) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - JUN 9, 2015
12oz bottle. Pours golden orange with a foamy white head. Aroma is of malt, caramel, grass, and lemon. Taste is of lemon, grassy hops, caramel, and malt. Lingering toasty malt taste. Mouthfeel is light and very carbonated. Body is light, but not thin. Just a really easy to drink beer.

akoeninger (541) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 31, 2015
Clear golden color with white head. Bready aroma with hints of grass. Taste is well balanced with notes of biscuit, grassy, herbal, citrus hops. Nicely carbonated and light body. Drinkable and enjoyable. A bit of a muddled finish.

jbruner (2920) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAY 30, 2015
Pours a hazy gold from the bottle with thin white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of sweet malt and crisp lager yeast esters. Taste follows, a bit heavy on the malts, but what you expect from the style. Decent.

joejames (348) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 11, 2015
Bottle to shaker glass. Pours clear golden, two finger off white head. Decent lacing and retention. Aroma is bready with citrus notes. Taste is nicely balanced, sweet with just the right bitterness for the style. Light bodied, lively carbonation, creamy mouth feel. Finishes bittersweet. Tasting notes of grass, herbs, biscuit, caramel and light roast. This beer surprised me! I’ve passed it over dozens of times. Very nice.
