“Johnny” Dortmunder Lager is A Westphalian lager that originated in Germany’s steel and coal district along the River Ruhr in the 19th century. Dortmunder is the laborer’s answer to the elegant, aromatic deep golden Pilsner from Bohemia and the straw-blond, brilliant, malty Munich Helles. Upstreams “Johnny” Dortmunder Lager is a full-bodied, moderately hopped working man’s beer. It became the favorite quaff of coal miners and heavy industry workers in the first half of the 20th century.

In growler at beer school. Named after a friend of Mike’s. Amber color, off-white head. I smell malt, perhaps caramel. Yummy beer, makes my tongue tingle. Hops are both grassy and floral, finish is grassy meadow.
