Our flagship beer was named after our founder’s grandmother, Dorothy. Easy drinking light, in color and in body, this steam lager is meant to be enjoyed any time of day. We usually have ours with breakfast.

Pours crisp, with a perfect ribbon. Mild carbonation, moderate lacing. Tastes of wheat, honey, hops, pine, nuts. Very little hoppy aftertaste. Lasted about 4 drinks, and was ready for another. Great micro-lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours slightly hazy golden with a thick, frothy eggshell head. Aroma has tempting malty, fruity and yeasty tones. Flavor is fuller than most lagers, even commons - malty, yeasty, a little fruity, a hint of hops. Mouthfeel has well-rounded body and some decent fizz. New world, old world, I’m not afraid of Dorothy or her beers. Makes me wanna head to Iowa!

Bottle from John’s Grocery in Iowa City, IA. Crystal clear pale golden body with an inch of bone white head. Bubbles slowly ascend to the surface. Outstanding appearance. The aroma offers pale malt, bread, grain, and a light fruity note. Clean, refreshing, simple. Light in body. Solid.

MacBoost (1520) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - JUN 6, 2015
Courtesy toss via Pepe. Thanks! Bottled in Florida. Designed in Iowa. 12oz bottle. Pours a clear gold with a small white head. Aromas of some corn. Sweetened veggies. Taste is similar but no DMS. Slightly sweet, very lightly bitter. Flavors of mediocrity, poor execution and general lacklusterness. Borderline garbage. Would rather drink bud light.

ajnepple (3443) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - JUN 5, 2015
12 oz bottle from John’s Grocery. Golden to orange and pretty clear appearance with a small, diminishing white head. Aroma of pale malts, light floral notes, bread, light lemon zest and light hop spice. Similar flavor, crisp and clean with a light zesty, light spicy hop bitterness. Light body with ample carbonation. Refreshing and easy to drink, a pretty nice lager overall.

I don't expect much from lagers but this is a pleasant surprise. Super smooth and easy to drink. Slightly malty with hints of wheat and lemon, and mildly dry. Could have a few of these easily.
