355ml bottle. Minhas by yet another name.
This beer pours a clear, medium golden amber colour, with two fingers of puffy, loosely foamy dirty white head, which leaves a few streaks of wave splash lace around the glass as it rather quickly bleeds away.
It smells of gritty, grainy pale malt, stale apples, earthy, dead leaf hops, and a slightly medicinal booze warming. The taste is semi-sweet grainy, somewhat raw dough-like bready malt, more mushy, overripe drupe fruitiness, a touch of unflavoured cough medicine, and faint earthy, musty hops.
The carbonation is fairly flaccid and innocuous, if barely supportive, the body an adequate medium weight, and more than a tad pithy, with a plastered on smoothness. It finishes off-dry, the alcohol gaining a certain rubbing 'quality', as the grainy malt duly cedes its perch, and the bland fruitiness maintaining its earlier age statement.
Not getting a lot of the crisp, biscuity notes that one might expect of a true Dortmunder lager. Another at least non-chest-heave inducing Minhas product, but with miles yet to go before attaining any sort of style respectability.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a pint glass.
Pours clear golden yellow with white foam on top. Some bubbles. Rich nose, bright smell. Light citrus too. Light lagery taste with some body. Extra extra sweet - like corn. The taste worsens as more is consumed. Its all off, and not great.
No sir, I did not like it. Perhaps a consult with GLBC on there dortmunder is recommended?

Refreshing beer, silly name.
When I saw the Berghoff Dortwunder 12 pack on the shelf, I assumed that the description read, "Dortmunder". Nope. DortWunder. A 'too cutesey' name for a serious beer.
Poured with a nice three-finger head that remained intact for the first few sips, but transformed into some nice lacing.
Once I got past the silly name, I was very impressed by the beer, which is a very good representation of the style. Sweetness of the malt hits the palate first, but is immediately balanced by the hops. Very smooth and drinkable.
I've been a fan of the Berghoff brand (actually a fan of the Minhas (nee Huber ) Brewery) for decades, but it seems that the quality has slipped a bit. Minhas reverses that trend with this offering.
I'm going to enjoy the balance of the 12 pack with friends and definitely look for more.
A winner from Minhas.

This beer is the best Berghoff offering in a long time! It has a fantastic golden color and leaves a compact, persistent head. Smell is nice soft floral hop. Taste excels with pure balance coming through. It starts out very malty and goes out with a nice hop bite. Mouthfeel is smooth/substantial. This is what I would call a "back in the day" beer; in a good way. Hope Minhas doesn't screw this one up as they have done so many times before. This is one I will buy all summer.
