My first Dortmunder. Amazing that i sampled two new styles yesterday, when at this point in my life, i've tried a LOT of beer. But to the best of my knowledge there are no examples of this style sold in AL. Guy brought three bottles of this to brewclub last night. Not too many people there so i was able to get enough of it to feel i can now write a review.

Overall, a mostly typical golden craft lager with just a little something different. Hard to put my finger on it. The word that comes to mind is "grainy." More than tasting "malt," you can actually taste something like fresh grain in this. Hops are light. Well balanced and something i'd definitely like to have again...

Ah, Dortmunder export, one of the vague styles. This one pours out a reddish-orange colored beer with a nice large head. The heavy malt aroma doesn't really go with the style, but it does smell nice. Flavor has a strong malt presence with only slight hop bitterness. Malt is a touch grainy, though not too much. Good body and mouthfeel, which is appropriate for a strong export.
