COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our version of the medium bodied dry lager beer that is brewed in Dortmund, the largest brewing city in Germany. Made with imported German malts and hops and aged for a full 6 weeks for maximum smoothness.

On Tap at the Publick House: this is one of the best Dortmunders I have had. Very similar to thier golden munich lager except just a little more hoppy and a bit more crisp in the finish. Light gold color almost straw- but quite a bit deeper in color than a standard BMC. Aroma is skewed more towards the german malts however there is a faint hint of hops in there whereas thier golden lager is skewed in the opposite direction. FLavor is very delicate and malty, but toward sthe finish you can detect the noble hops with their slightly earthy and spiciness. Great finish and mouthfeel. Very flavorful and extremely drinkable.

This is an impressive lager, with an abudance of grain/bread/pastry flavors, complimented well with notes of honey, berries, and other hard to place fruits - an assertive hop profile cuts the maltiness off at the end, creating a clean, dry finish, leaving the tongue wondering what the hell it just experienced, and wanting plenty more of it.

Smell sweet honey notes and raisins?? Also peaches. This is wierd for a lager, yeah? Taste starts dry, a little bitter, and fades into a nice sweet fruity finish. This I like.

Clear straw yellow color with a puffy white head. Fresh raw dough aroma. Full-on yeasty dough taste that's fantastic, dry and sweet. Just perfect.

Extremely crisp and dry, as befits the style. A little beefier and more hopped up than most, which is typical for Southampton brews. A truly terrific lager. Well done; very tasty.

Clear golden with a small white head. Crisp, clean and incredibly tasty. Huge hop aroma with a bit of underlying malt. Whole grains and cereal from the malt and yeasty dough start before the dry, crisp, bitter hops take over. Incredibly refreshing and totally wonderful. The bartender said Phil told him this was the best lager he's ever made. I can't testify to the validity of that statement, but this was an amazing beer--there is no doubt about that.
