Dominion Lager is brewed using four types of malted barley: Two-Row Pale Brewers malt, Munich, Carapils, and Caramel. The bittering hops are Perle and Hallertau from the Yakima Valley in Washington State. The aromatic hops are domestic Tettnang, German Hallertau Hersbrucker, and Czech Saaz. This combination of malt and hops, along with a classic lager yeast from Germany, and the long, low-temperature lagering process results in a mild, smooth, flavorful, complex beer that is a delight to drink.

If I lived in Virginia, this would be my everyday beer. You guys are lucky who live near enough to enjoy the strong clean flavor, beautifully accented, of this brew.

Gran aroma. Clear yellow, some arty hops but that s about it. Very mellow not too much but drinkable cold. Ok.

Malty with burnt caramel. No nose to speak of. Decent enough but not worth revisiting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Psytron (2038) - Turku, FINLAND - MAY 4, 2015
Bottle with bottling date July 23rd, 2007. Very syrupy smell. Muddy yellow colour, some black residue on the bottom. Mostly tastes like butter. Some hoppy notes to be noticed, but this one was rather clearly spoiled. Giving an average rating for now.

solidfunk (8062) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Actually a strong, good lager with good malt and some nice hops. Pours amber with good head and lacing. Finishes with a little bitterness, good balance. Finishes with light bitterness. Comes together with good balance. Pleasantly surprised here. On tap at DC Summerfest.

Nickls (2428) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - APR 12, 2014
Tap. Clear deep nice golden yellow with a fluffy white head. Light grassy hops, dough, and a hint of malty sweetness. Flavor is very similar. Mostly clean with crackers and light grassy hops. Lighter to medium body. Not bad, but far from a great lager.

deaconmike (470) - Roswell, Georgia, USA - JAN 12, 2014
Poured from a bottle. Orange/amber with white foamy head; plenty of splotchy lacing. Aroma is pear, apple, grain, and earth. The beer starts sweet, but then gives way to a long bitter finish. Body is light and carbonation is soft. Not my favorite style, but an OK beer.

superspak (5009) - Michigan, USA - DEC 4, 2013
12 ounce bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours moderately hazy golden amber color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky off-white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of pear, apple, cracker, biscuit, light caramel, honey, floral, grass, herbal, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of malt, hop, and yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of pear, apple, cracker, biscuit, light caramel, honey, floral, grass, light pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of light fruits, cracker, biscuit, honey, light caramel, floral, grass, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and robustness of malt, hop, and yeast ester flavors; with a great malt/hop balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, clean, and moderately crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good Dortmunder style. Good balance and robustness of flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
