Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Jason on 07-23-2013

Starting with a base of U.S. 2-row pilsner malt, we add just enough lightly-kilned Vienna and Munich malts to add a slight caramel character. Hops are New World versions of European classics, smooth and clean, but with some real personality as well.

From BeerAdvocate Magazine #81 (Oct 2013):

This brew has all of the underpinnings for a Dortmunder Lager, though we were looking for a cleaner & deeper crispness. Aside from that (and it being pretty damn drinkable), this ends up being quite a superb brew.

STYLE: Dortmunder Lager
ABV: 5.5%

LOOK: Bright pale golden, excellent lacing

SMELL: Clean graininess, loaf of bread, herbal hop, slightly spicy, grassy, lemon pith

TASTE: Sufficient crispness, moderate-sized body, dry maltiness, crackers, herbal; balanced hop bitterness; faint wild honey, grainy; drying, hoppy finish (606 characters)

Pours no head on a clear straw body.
The aroma is grain and lemon.
The taste is lemon and metallic bitterness.
The texture is crisp and fizzy.
It's okay. (153 characters)

12oz brown longneck poured into my SA perfect pint glass, the beer is a chill hazed gold with a fairly thick white head.

Grains and grass on the nose.

The taste is slightly sweet with crackers, a bit of something earthy and a touch of pear. Berghoff seems to have changed their yeast strain as the bubble gum like esters are thankfully gone.

The mouth is medium thickness. I would like to see a bit more carbonation.

All-in-all a fairly enjoyable beer. (457 characters)
