COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bruce describes his classic German-style lager as "pale gold in color with a blend of Pilsner maltiness and a mild hops aroma. The bitterness is just enough to balance the taste of the malt." Bruce is a former music teacher who began homebrewing 13 years ago when his wife gave him a kit for Christmas. He has since become an accomplished homebrewer and shares his knowledge and passion for beer by teaching classes in homebrewing and beer appreciation.

Beerman6686 (4301) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 5, 2008
Poured a clear yellow color with a white head. Aroma was really skuny, like most germany styles and grassy. Flavor was really skunky, grass,some corn, not good at all.

jkwalking05 (3686) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUL 26, 2008
Small head with a dark golden color. Almost no aroma. The flavor is not bad but does not have the balance that there should be in a dortmunder.

badbeer (434) - Iowa, USA - JUL 5, 2008
Pours a clear golden color with a white head that retains well and leaves a decent lacing. Smell of straw and faint grassy hops. A bit of straw in the taste, sweet honey, a slightly grassy flavor and maybe a hint of nut. Pretty highly carbonated with an almost medium body. I was actually surprised; this was really good I thought. This is a beer that can keep the BMC crowd happy, as well as the people who prefer those with more character. I sound like a commercial in the previous sentence, but whatever, this is good and certainly worth a looking for.

It wasn’t amazing, but it was good. It was sort of average for this style.

BlackDonald (1126) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 21, 2008
Not bad at all, not extremely complex, but that is not really what they were going for here. On the lighter side, with some grassy hoppiness, somewhat floral, some cereal grain maltiness, a quick finish that is somewhat earthy and dry, and disappears from the palate as quickly as it came.

daknole (9044) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 18, 2008
Pretty decent beer. Hops and grain flavor is well balanced. Overall a good beer, but not a top notch brew.

IrishBoy (3822) - Bakersfield, California, USA - MAR 15, 2008
Bottle from Odeed; Nose of grassy hops, light sweetness, and a perfumy rose odor; lightly hazed gold with a small white head; flavor is slightly sweet grain and light peppery spiciness.

This along with the Great Lakes are the superior Dortmunders I’ve had.

Skyview (5172) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAR 2, 2008
Found a six pack of the Samuel Adams 2006 AHC at Warehouse Liquors in Duluth, Minnesota. Pours a semi-clear golden pale brew with a thin and fast dissolving off-white head that dissipates clean. Aroma of light dry biscuit malt, grassy hops, a touch of earthy herbs and some white pepper. taste is light to medium bodied, with some dry multi-grain malt, some flowery and grassy hop character, a touch of allspice, and even some light butter. Finish is semi-dry, a little metallic with a light multi-grain aftertaste that quickly disappears.

Goodgrief (1782) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - FEB 18, 2008
Mar. 2007 - Golden yellow pour, clear with a slight haze, nice head and lacing. Aroma was grassy hops and butter. Flavor was sweet buttery cheesey flavor, like cheese left out a bit too long, with a grassy hop bitter finish. Rich full flavor and mouthfeel. Pretty good.
