On tap at McGillins this past weekend. Light golden straw color with a smallish bone white head. Sweet malty bready aroma with a hint of spicy hops. Light bready honey like sweet malty taste with a hint of tartness to it. Decent pilsner but not nearly as refined or as cleanly fermented as some classic examples.

Attractive appearance with the yellow color and frothy head which lasts pretty well. Pleasantly carbonated. Green pepper flavor with a wisp of bready malt. Quite fragrant in the nose.

The resiny hop taste is quite prominent. A touch of the metallic and stony. An herbal sort of bitterness at the finish. This seems quite sharp and tangy with a lemon peel taste. Not as quaffable for a light beer, as you might like, though it has plenty of hops for those who like more bite. From the 12 oz bottle out of the cooler at Whole Foods in DC.

Quite a bit of tangy tone to this one. Also a lot of ink to it as well. Hoppy spices are clogging things up as well. The whole combination makes it much more robust and intense than I would like for a lager. Doesnt seem to have any level of restraint at all. There is nothing refreshing about this beer.

Pours golden in color with a smallish white head thats pretty dense. aromas of lite spicy hops and pilsner malts come through.
Taste is malty with a dry spiceness. very sutle hop. Tart and puckering in the mouth.
Not a bad beer but seems to lack flavor feels washed out.

Thanks to Rhettroactive for forcing the issue on this one!

A. Pours a lovely pale straw with a nice golden undertone. Two fingers of beautiful and pillowy eggshell white head quickly settles to a half finger. Excellent and consistent lacing. Top notch looking pils here.

S. Wow, a really pleasant nose of freshly baked bread, like a baguette fresh out of the oven. Also a nice, sweet, semi-citrusy hop profile. Very floral aromas combine with dry crackers to create a very pleasing bouquet. Very very nice.

T. Lots of spent grains, some floral and lightly spicy hops, tempering caramel malts, and a bit of a dry, grassy finish.

M. Light, crisp, clean, refreshing, well-carbed. Really a nice balance here and near perfect integration.

O. Don't sleep on Dominion. They are still producing some excellent brews and this is absolutely one of them. Great recommendation, Rhett, and a must-try pilsner for anyone living in a city that gets above 90 degrees in the summer.

Had this brand at least once before Dominion was bought and then production moved to Fordham, in Delaware.

Luckily, Fordhad does a phenomenal job with lagers, and they don't draw my criticism for doing a brand based on a Virginia name in a totally not-Virginia state. Beer is still good if it's good, right?

Hazy deep straw to early gold color.

Clean white head, good retention.

Good noble-seeming hop aroma.

Balanced Czech-like Pils bitterness.

Nice mouthfeel, with that hint of wortiness meets grassy hop.

I think it'd be a come-down to say a good "lawn mower beer", because it's got more depth and character than that. A great hot weather beer. Well done.
