look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A- Pours a hazy dark golden yellow with a 1 1/2 finger white head. Carbonation bubbles streaming up the glass.

S- Has a sweet smell to it. Light hops with a caramel malt character. Smells are soft. Some straw notes as well.

T- Starts off sweet malty flavors. Flavors are a blend of honey and floral. The hops come through on the finish with a slight bitterness.

M- Medium body but leaning more to the lighter side.

O- Its not a bad beer. Nothing super fancy but its a decent flavored lager.

Good showing Delaware. I've tasted airplane peanuts more flavorful than this. It has a generally comparable color and smell. Taste and mouthfeel fail to exceed the expectations set by mainstream breweries, let alone craft shops. Not sure how mature Dominion brewery is, but they have potential (despite my opinion of this particular brew).

12 ounce bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours moderately hazy golden amber color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky off-white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of pear, apple, cracker, biscuit, light caramel, honey, floral, grass, herbal, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of malt, hop, and yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of pear, apple, cracker, biscuit, light caramel, honey, floral, grass, light pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of light fruits, cracker, biscuit, honey, light caramel, floral, grass, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and robustness of malt, hop, and yeast ester flavors; with a great malt/hop balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, clean, and moderately crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good Dortmunder style. Good balance and robustness of flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
