Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: daledeee on 11-22-2010

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.”

3.94/5  rDev +3.4%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance:
Crystal clear golden hue, crowned with a rather dismal head that fades to a small ring within seconds of pouring. Nice, steady streams of carbonation gracefully drift upward.

Aroma:
Sweet, fresh grains fill the nose with a light lemon tinge. Simple, but very nice.

Taste:
Just as sweet and simple as the aroma. Light, grassy hop bite right up front hits briefly before fresh, lightly toasted biscuits and lemon zest trickle in. Light doughy character and table sugar round off the finish with a tasty, sweet aftertaste.

Mouthfeel:
Light body - Clean, crisp, perfectly carbonated, and highly refreshing.

Overall:
This being my first encounter with this style, I wasn't sure what to expect. That said, the end of my only bottle had me wishing I had purchased more. It's delicious! Incredibly refreshing and easy to drink make this inoffensive beer a must have! (874 characters)

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a tall pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a bright and fairly hazy straw golden orange with a lot of rising bubbles. About one finger of white head that slowly fades into a thin patchy layer. Leaves a lot of lacing.

Smell: A bready and fairly sweet malt forward aroma with good hints of grains and biscuit. Pale malt with hints of bready biscuit, grains, straw, cracker, and yeast. Fairly earthy with some hints of grassy hops. Zesty hints of lemon fruit. A nicely crisp and bready light lager aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a crisp, bready, and fairly sweet malt forward taste with good notes of grains and biscuit. Upfront pale malt with notes of grains, biscuit, cereal, wheat, straw, cracker, and lager yeast. Earthy hop background with notes of grass. Citrus fruit notes of lemon. A pretty solid light lager taste.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Crisp and very smooth with a fairly dry finish.

Overall: A pretty solid take on a light pale lager style. Nice crisp grainy malt notes with some light citrus notes. (1,094 characters)
