Dortmunder / Export Lager |  5.50% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

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.

I mistakenly let this warm a bit before pouring. Corn comes out more. Poured with a nice, large, foamy, frothy, off-white head that soon settled to a light cover and a little lace. Color is a clear yellow with some bubble trails. Aroma is corn first then malt and a hint of hop. Flavor's very similar to nose, but strong carbonation adds significant tang. Body and carbonation are ok. Finish is a little like flavor but morphs into something not as pleasant and too long.
