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.”

L: Pours an energetic gold with a white to cream colored foam cap that completely disappears after a minute and a half. S: Spicy, grainy, minty hop aromas joined by light bread rise from the glass. T: A prickly entrance gives way to grain and malt flavors with traces of apple and sulfur that open the door to an assertive hop bitter finish. F: Sparkly, prickly, lively, with a medium light body. O: Crisp and refreshing and packed with flavor. (446 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)
