Notes & Commercial Description:

Our flagship beer was named after our founder’s grandmother and crafted to please her purely classic tastes. Mildly hopped, light in color and body, and clean to the taste, this california common-style lager drinks easy. Each sip charms the senses with distinct flavor and refreshing simplicity, delivering a smooth finish. Dorothy is truly the “Classic Beauty.”

Pours a soft, frothy head. Yeasty aroma with citrus behind it; surprisingly fruity (and wonderful). Hazy straw color. An oddly bitter front end. There is a strong, lingering citrus rind bitterness. There is an orange flavor and a touch of malt behind it.

This is weird, and not necessarily in a good way. Surprisingly bitter, citric, yeasty, with little maltiness. Definitely interesting.

Appearance: Cloudy yellow, huge head.

Smell: Fruity, apple, kind of malt liquor-like, which is a bit of a turn-off.

Taste: Nice mildly sweet and fruity. A little bit of corn. Easy drinking lager beer.

Overall: Picked up a bomber in Wiscoland to continue trying the available TG beers. This is usually on the shelf but I had avoided it due to it being a lager. It is well made, and a pretty solid beer other than the smell leans a bit too much towards malt liquor fusels.
